Welcome all, to the final day of "Scrapbooking Your Stuff." Today, we will be stretching the definition of "stuff," to include special places we hold near and dear. This can be a place you travel to, a place that is part of your regular routine, or simply a spot in your home. Just as the things in our lives hold some of our stories, so too do the places that we visit.
Close To Home
You don't even need to leave your home to find a special place. Perhaps there is a spot in your home where the family gathers. For us, that is in front of the TV.
Perhaps you find joy outside in the garden, as Lisa shares here.
Grab some tissues for this mini album from Jennny L. It looks at all the places in her house where you could tell that a dog lived there. She made it as a memorial to her dog, after she died.
What do you love (or hate) about the place where you work? Here is Lisa's layout about her work. As a fellow preschool teacher, I can attest to the fact that it really can be a magical place.
There are probably in your life, that you find yourself visiting over and over again. Whether those places are near or far, they are part of your family lore.
Here in New York, we love visiting Central Park inthe spring and the summer, and we always end up in the same place year after year.
Though most of our days are spent in the city, Whenever we leave, we make sure to find the closest Friendly's restaurant. Since we keep Kosher, we can only eat the ice cream, which is not a bad deal, if you ask me. My history with Friendly's goes back to my own childhood, and it makes me happy to have the story continue with my own kids.
Laura tells the story of one of her daughter's favorite places to visit when she was a younger; An FAO Schwarts store that no longer exists. But it's a place that they still talk about and remember.
Kate has three layouts about some of her special places. The first layout tells about a trip with her father and siblings to all the places that her father grew up.
Then next two are places that she visits frequently with her husband's family:
And, last but certainly not least, Jennifer H. packs a lot of photos of so many places in one layout.
Well,there you have it, folks! Thank you for joining me this week, and I hope you have a restful weekend ahead of you!
