3D ring Album using 8x8 pages - more managable for scrapping a page a day. Nothing too fancy and certainly keeping each page fairly flat avoiding the lumpy-bumpy to fit in as many days in the album as possible - 15 pages for each month using each side. I'm sure there will be days I'll miss (due to my forgetfulness!!) as the year passes, but my New Years Resolution is to journal each page every day. I'm finding with the 3 pages already done - being 8x8 - it doesnt take long and certainly far from masterpieces - but thats not its purpose. Every photo scrapped will be a moment, part of my day or perhaps a thought - who knows.....but here's my start:We stayed at friends place for New Years Eve and this little wheelbarrow retired to the garden, was once used in one of my productions 'The Secret Garden' for the gardener 'Ben'. Seeing it again, brought back special memories! After being away for Christmas and New Years - I was dying to scrap - so on this day - its all I did (among a little unpacking)! My garden is starting to look lovely for Summer, so here's me and my green wheelbarrow (what is it about wheelbarrows!!) Its old, and has rust holes....and we do have a new bright blue one, but its uncomfortable looking! Does that make sense?? lol. I'm so affected by what I see!
FOR BUSY PEOPLE/BUSY TIMES: here's a little solution :
How about taking a photo a day when you can no matter how significant/insignifcant - print it out, write on the back of it, date it then..... punch a couple of holes and pop it into some sort of flip thingy ?? I may do this myself in my album when time gets away from me!!!
One of the things I am soooooo grateful for is that my Granny (who passed away 20 something years ago) wrote on the back of every photo!!
WHAT a legacy! (this is my fav pic of her - she was always picking mint!)
In her descriptions on the backs of photos she at times called herself a 'rumon' and said things like 'I'm frowning awful' and 'Did you notice my poor dead potplant!'
Does that rummage up some motivation??? :D
