...you see, I thought I'd join in with this:
The #myselfiescrapbook project is a month-long class created by Jennifer Lake and Julie Gagen. Full of prompts, free file downloads, and inspiration from contributors, the class is about self-love and documenting you as part of your family's story. To join in making your own mini-album, check out all of the #myselfiescrapbook posts.
It seemed 'doable', as it's only a month. And I'm often taking photos for Fat Mum Slim's Photo a Day challenge....so.....
I had made an album for the My Details course last year...
with 8 empty pages left at the end of the 8"x 8" book.
So, this is what I'm using.
Initially, I shoveled in to find some old papers....threw some ink at them & whacked down some photos that I'd printed at home on crappy photo paper.
You know how peeps say 'It shows love'. Or you haven't 'shown me the love'? Well, I finally 'got' that idea.
My pages had no love.
The photos showed love. But I was not a happy chappy with what I'd done.
So, most unlike me I ripped the photos off.
Salvaged some & sat down and LOVINGLY scrapped them!
I realised I needed room to write the story.
It, for me, drives the photos. And I got out some stamps.
And I kept it simple. Well, as simple as I'm capable of!
And I REALLY like the Kellie Winell prompt to take photos looking down.
So, of course, I used her stamp along the bottom of the page as well;)
Oh, the difference a bit of love makes!!!
If I'd been scrapping anyone else.....there's no way I would have been so off-hand.
There's a deep and meaningful in there, I'm sure!!!
I ended up doing 3 pages all together. I've room for the rest of the month still:
I guess 'cos we're all different, we will all have a slightly different take on the challenge.
I'm hoping I can finish it. I wish I was tech-savvy enough to use the digi elements that are free.
But I think if I can just do this with LOVE, that will be enough!!!!
Thanks for looking! And take a peek at the links if you're interested in this sort of thing:)
