I love a good book! You, too? Great! Because that's what we're going to be talking about this week. No, don't worry, Write.Click. Scrapbook isn't switching its focus and becoming a book group site, we're just going to explore the impact literature has on our daily lives, and how we can translate that into fun, memorable scrapbook pages.
Here are four ideas to start us off-
1. Do you remember when you learned to read? I do. It was 1971, I had just finished kindergarten and I was so anxious to improve my new skills that I spent my afternoons practicing with Dick and Jane. I can remember being so proud of myself when I could read a whole book to my mother.
2. Francine created this gorgeous page about all the different types of books she likes to read. Among other things, her journaling states, "I have always believed that I can learn anything by reading about it." Notice all the fun titles in her stacks! And I love those tiny alphabet letters in the center of her flowers. What great details!
3. Do you regularly visit your local library? Vivian created a page about her family's visits and recorded their routine, including notes about the type of books her children currently like to check out. I just love the way she organized her photos and accents on her page - there are so many fun element to see, but it still feels so cohesive.
4. Amy's layout leaves no room for doubt about just how much she loves books. Just look at those piles! She write, "I just can't help it: Stacks and stacks of books is just a part of being who I am. Admittedly, sometimes the stacks of books frustrate me. Not because they're not neat and tidy though; because they're reminders of all the bookish joys I haven't had time for yet."
All of us book-lovers are right there with you Amy!
Take a minute to leave a comment telling me what you're reading now, or have recently finished that you really enjoyed. I always love a new book suggestion! I just finished A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. It's one I've meant to read for a long time now and I'm so glad I finally did.
Thanks for visiting today. I'll see you tomorrow, but before I go, here are some wise words from P.J. O'Rourke -"Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it."
