Yay. I get to host the WCS blog again.
As I've thought about what I want to do and can do and what I believe will be most helpful to busy women in the midst of summer, I've decided to declare this week, Look Back Week.
As you might guess, Look Back Week is all about looking back at what we've accomplished as scrapbookers. Because we have a love of photography and capturing the details of everyday life and because we can scroll through digital images for hours and because have never-ending piles of un-scrapped pictures there is a 24.7 push to get more done, faster. We simply don't allow ourselves (often enough) the pleasure of recognizing how much we've accomplished already.So, who's in?
Each day, I'll share a short video, looking back on a page or project I love. I'll tell you why I love it and I'll encourage you to do the same. I sincerely believe that if we cut ourselves some serious slack this summer and did nothing but look back on the memories preserved and the details documented that we would fuel our creativity in amazing ways. We could actually welcome fall with an arsenal of ideas and the energy to match them.Today's Project & Challenge:
Look back and find vacation or travel photos from several years ago. Perhaps you've already created a layout about this adventure, perhaps not, either way ... gather all of the photos you still love and put them together in a very simple mini-book. Enjoy the process of reliving this trip and focus your reflections on the stories you tell about this trip today--in other words, what are the things you really remember that need to be documented.
Note: I confirmed my hunch, that this album is a We R Memory Keepers product, and there are still several available at Scrapbook.com. Since most of my photos were vertically oriented. I chose to turn my album on it's side!
Remember to keep your project super simple. Mount 4x6 photos on cardstock and fill a few pages with handwritten journaling. Consider covering your mini-book with photos or easy strips of paper whose colors/patterns stem from the photos themselves.
Leave me a comment when you know which vacation/trip/adventure you'll be revisiting. And when you've completed your project, post it in the WCS gallery for all to see!
