I still believe in the concept. You must safely store your photos and what better way than in an album that you can decorate and journal your life story. I love it!
In the last few years, however, I have been lax and needed something to kick start my scrapbooking, again. Kathie holds scrapbook retreats a few times a year and it just so happened that I was able to attend one this last weekend.
It was five of us and we had so much fun. There was girl talk, massages, cropping, eating, recipe begging, scrapping, Cricut cutting and more. Whoa, back it up..... I know what you must be thinking....massages? At a scrapbook retreat? Well, yes! Kathie had a masseuse come give massages to anyone that wanted one. I did! Thank you, very much!
I have to say, that little scrapbook retreat was all it took to get me hooked, again!
I'll show you a few of the pages I worked on. I like my pages simple with just a little color and maybe a die-cut or two. The most important thing to me is telling the story....preserving that memory of the day. In my photos below, you will see the page layouts, but I decided to do my journaling later at home, when I had time to think about what I wanted to write.
If you don't scrapbook, why the heck not? I challenge you to give it a try. Do a little research....maybe watch a youtube video or if you have questions, shoot me an email. Or, if you are local, I can put you in contact with Kathie. When choosing your supplies, just make sure your albums, paper and decorations are acid free.
If you do scrapbook, HOLLER! Now, go take a look at mine.
One of our scrapbookers is missing from this photo. That's the masseuse on the left.
A trip to San Francisco.
A 10K run on a beautiful barrier island, right here in SC.
A few more pictures to complete the story....all that is needed now is my journaling.
Think you might want to give it try? I hope so!
And then, today, I attended Award's Day at Sawyer's school.
This little cutie received an award for having all A's in the first nine weeks of school.
I'm a proud LaLa!
And, I love him!
