Well scrappy friends, it's been a fun ride with you this week! Thanks for letting me share my passion about childhood/heritage scrapping with you. I hope it's inspired you to scrap more of your own story. I have loved looking at your pages in the flickr gallery, and have been inspired by you! Thanks so much for sharing your pages and stories with us. For my final post today, I thought I'd share some of your pages and how they inspired me. I won't share all of the pages for lack of space, but believe me when I say it was hard to narrow it down--they were all fabulous pages!! If you haven't already, take a minute to look at them all in the flickr gallery--you'll be glad you did.
From Marnie Flores:
I love how Marnie journaled about some reading memories and how her love of reading came about from her childhood experiences. Her simple effective design lets her photo and journaling shine.
From Celeste Smith:
Celeste's page is about her memories from the library she frequented in her childhood hometown. Since she didn't have a photo of it, she found this one and got permission to use it. Very clever, and a lovely page to boot!
From Cheryl Overton:
Cheryl photographed a family heirloom and journaled about why it is so special to her. What a fabulous idea, and a beautiful page!
From Elizabeth Dillow:
I love Elizabeth's simple but beautiful design, and her wonderful handwritten journaling about some memories from 1st grade. Her girls will love reading this!
Hannah told a wonderful story about a young summer crush on this page, and instead of including a photo of her or her crush, she used a photo of an object that reminded her of the experience. Another fab idea!
From Jody Wenke:
This beautiful page includes a photo of Jody and her daughter at similar ages playing with the same tea set. How priceless is this??
From kismet art:
I love how multiple photos of these adorable cousins are included on this page along with some wonderful handwritten memories of their relationship and adventures. Love it!!
From Lain Ehmann:
How cool are the color combo, patterned paper, and journaling on the photo in this awesome page??
From Lisa Toronto:
I love that Lisa journaled about a detail in her photos: the sweater knitted by her grandmother that she's wearing. I also love her simple design that allows those fun photos to shine.
From Melissa Kaiserman:
On this gorgeous page Melissa journaled from her own perspective. She included her memories and impressions about each of these special relatives in her life.
Two things I love about this pretty page: 1) She journaled just the facts. Sometimes that's all we have, but it's still important that these things are recorded. 2) She created a digital page. Heritage scrapbooking is a great way to delve into digital if you haven't. That way you can create digital photobooks that other relatives can order if they'd like a copy.
I'm out of time and space here, but thanks again for a fun week and for sharing your inspiration with us. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and happy scrapping!
