So, what's your story?
What kind of stories do you most enjoy telling?
Leave a comment and answer whichever of these questions you'd like.
Then ... take our weekend challenge to sit down by all by yourself and flip through one or more of your scrapbook albums--preferably one that holds a random mix of layouts. Select three pages featuring journaling you really like. Read each of these pages. What kind of information did you share? What information is lacking?
If you were to go back today, would you add something, or write something differently?
With this experience in mind, create a new layout and tell a new story.
and from Melanie...
Everyone has stories. Good and bad, funny and sad. As scrapbookers, we choose to remember them on paper, where they will hopefully be passed on for our future generations to read about.
But what happens when we have the photos, but no stories to go along with them? When I decided to scrap the photo of my late Grandmother in my layout below, I had no info whatsoever about it. A family member had given it to me a while back, and couldn't offer any tidbits about the date, time, or place. It's still a photo I cherish—an important piece of the story of my family history that has a place in my scrapbook, even though the story is incomplete.Supplies: patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket) + cardstock (American Crafts) + letter stickers (American Crafts) + brads (Making Memories) + font (Splendid 66)
Did you notice I used the Compendium colour scheme I posted yesterday? I think it works well with my topic, and the colours compliment the grey tones of the vintage photo. I'd love to see what you create, too!
