I would like to change that.
I am currently working on my 2012 Family Scrapbook and am happy to say that I am not terribly behind. It is a goal of mine to be working on layouts from less than six months ago, and I am well within that time frame as I happily plod along recording our family memories from last year. I find that if I get too far behind with my layouts that it is really hard for me to write meaningful and detailed journalling on the page because I forget the details. For me, telling a great story about the event shown on the page is what makes scrapbooking so special and so priceless in terms of preserving memories; I don't want to forget the precious details, so I really make an effort to stay on top of things.
Today I would like to show you two double layouts that I did using pictures from a family trip we took to African Lion Safari in August.
What do you think?
I put these layouts together at a crop at my local scrapbook store a few weeks ago. Being surrounded by all the pretty paper and embellishments, plus a crowd of ladies so enthusiastic about scrapbooking, really got me motivated and excited about finishing up my 2012 album. I also had a chance to do some shopping at the store, meaning I am well stocked for some serious scrapbooking at home. I look forward to showing you my layouts as I finish them up.
What layouts are you working on?
