NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY!
In my previous life, when I taught scrapbook classes, and was a full-fledged crazy scrapbooker this weekend was a fun and stressful one for me. We'd have weekend long classes, crops, sales, etc. But now that I'm a closet scrapbooker - or at least not involved in the scrapbook industry like I used to be - this is a holiday celebrated in quiet at my house. Today it meant loading up on some fun deals on-line for digital stuff, and putting together a few pages.
I have found that over time my scrapbooking really hasn't changed much. Even though I create my pages digitally, I still feel like I do the same thing, like the same looks, and I'm really not into all of the artsy stuff that can be done in digital scrapbooking. I still like simplicity, clean lines, organization, straight photos for the most part, stitching and buttons. I feel like I must include journaling on every page - and I still have a harder time creating pages about EVENTS than I do feelings and emotions (I really struggle with holiday and birthday pages - but give me some pictures of the boys being cute - and I have no problem.) So that's me.
So if you're a scrapbooker, or if you're not - hope you have a great weekend, and have some fun either creating, or documenting memories!
