It’s been a while since I posted, but I’ve been very busy and have lots to share! This is the first 2 page layout of a 4 page kit using Echo Park’s “Anything Goes” line. I immediately fell in love with the camera patterned paper and embellishments.
I find it a major challenge to take photographs of my grand kids where they are close to looking at the camera. I’m rarely aiming for that specific shot: but come on, at least let me see your face! While vacationing this past summer I hit the jackpot – a decent picture where they BOTH looked up and smiled. Simply AMAZING! Thank goodness for the digital age, and the ability to take hundreds of pictures that ultimately result in a handful of good ones.
But like any other obsessed scrapbooker, I often hang on to most of the extra pictures. Together, they all tell a story. A story of love, love, love and a lot of fun in this journey called life. I decided to use this layout to highlight not only my favourite photo of the day, but all the others that kept us laughing. Make sure you capture it all – the good, the bad and the ugly. Embrace it all. I have a few Facebook friends that have been digging up some of those old and forgotten memories of our past together in public school. While I initially cringed at how I looked in some of those pictures, you can’t deny the fun and love we shared growing up. Warms the heart, especially on these cold winter days!
So here’s to making memories and preserving it for your loved ones.
