A Note from Jennifer
I’ve scrapped my love of technology before, but I was inspired to scrap about my mother’s technological aptitude when I found these photos I’d printed but never scrapbooked. I’m not super technological myself, but I always feel like an expert after hanging out with my mom.

My mother is not the most technologically savvy person in the world. When she learns how to do something, she learns it well, but she never uses it and forgets what she learned. She uses a flip phone but keeps it off all the time to conserve the battery—because cell phones are to be used only in cases of emergency. She can’t get the email on her laptop to work, so she never uses it. She never finds out why it doesn’t work. She tends to take blurry photos because she presses the shutter button very hard—which you don’t need to do on a digital camera but did with older cameras. Still, though learning new technology isn’t her forte, she’s game to try, and recently she did so by becoming adept at loading up her Kindle and reading with it. True, she tends to forget to pack the chargers when she comes to visit, but she is always willing to learn new technology. Next time we’ll teach her how to use the remote to play a movie on Netflix.

February Fun Fact
The papers in this layout were scraps left over after a crop that were lying in a pile. I liked how they looked together and saved them for a page to be made later.
