If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I do not scrap chronologically. I simply scrap whatever inspires me at the moment. This year, however, I am challenging myself to scrap some current photos throughout the year so that I'll have a good start on my 2014 chronological album and record some of our stories more "in the moment."
Here's a look at a few pages showcasing photos & stories from this year. This first one is a digital layout I created using a template provided in the Stashbusters Anonymous workshop earlier this year.
FUN to make one!
For my layout showcasing photos from New Year's Day, I included journaling in the embellishment clusters.
I really like the way this two page spread turned out - such a happy FUN start to the year!
I actually used one of the leftover photos from New Year's Day on this next layout to help me document how I was feeling five months into the year.
I'm enjoying recording some of our 2014 stories as the year goes along. I know many memory keepers use the Project Life (or similar) products to scrap each week or month as the year goes along, however I've not been inspired to create that way and am the type of person who would feel pressured to "keep up" all the time. Since scrapbooking is my hobby and the thing I do for FUN and personal fulfillment, I'm glad there are so many ways to document our lives and that we can each choose what works for us.
