I think this W might be one of the easiest prompts to use. Webster's gives a simple definition of when: the time of anything. Scrapbooks are really about capturing & documenting time...so when comes into play all the time.
When certainly fits "events" layouts. A quick word about events...I know that the "events vs. everyday" debate can sometimes cause a ruckus at crops. I personally think that events layouts are essential to any scrapbook collection. I probably don't scrapbook enough of them. While I may find it mundane to scrapbook yet another Christmas morning, I know that I will cherish those layouts years from now. I do try to capture the details of events so that my layouts say more than "we came. we saw. we opened presents." So, i say bring on the events...
*WHEN we went to Disney/Grand Canyon/insert landmark here
*WHEN we celebrate Christmas/Easter/Arbor Day
*WHEN you turned 1,2,3...20
*WHEN we got married
*WHEN you went to prom
*WHEN you were born
*WHEN I was pregnant
*WHEN you played soccer/football/basketball
*WHEN you started school
*WHEN you graduated
(help me fill in this list...I'm only on my 2nd cup of coffee)
For those who want to dig a little deeper...maybe have a bit broader interpretation (hi Elizabeth!) of when...you might think in terms of...
*WHEN you were young
*WHEN I grow up
*WHEN I look at you
*WHEN I think about _________
*WHEN are you happiest?
*WHEN are you proud?
*WHEN did you ______? (this is a great question to ask someone else...it's fun to find out THEIR story!)
A just a couple of layouts, then I'm off to work...
I asked my Mom to tell me about when she got engaged...the journaling is her story.
Tell me about your WHEN prompts...or better yet, SHOW me! (and for everyone who left comments on Wed...THANK YOU!...I will comment back, I promise...). Happy friday :)
