Over the last couple of years, I have taken up scrapbooking. What started as a desire to create a unique guest book for our wedding turned into a full-blown hobby, thanks in part to taking up camping shortly thereafter. My second book was an album dedicated to chronicling all of our camping trips.
Being me, I wanted to bring some order to all of my scrapping possibilities. Thanks to The Mom Creative, I was introduced to Stacy Julian’s “Big Picture” concepts. I started a “Story of Us” album chronicling our family over the years (obviously, it’s not super long – yet 🙂 ). I have several other albums on the docket, including a book on the “People We Love,” a book about the “Things We Do” (hiking, running, etc.), a book all about T & B, and a book to chronicle our land/new home journey.
The book that I’m currently working on – and I mean that loosely – is our Yosemite album. I have been saying for the last three weekends that I’m going to work on it, but I somehow get derailed from that plan. I have plenty of time to work on it, but I need to stop filling that time with my reality TV hobby 😕 .
While the progress is slow, I am happy with the work I’ve done. Here’s a little look…
First page in the book on cool Yosemite paper.
I was a little obsessed with the bear lockers, so I got creative with the Cricut.
Next up: Big Trees.
How do you commemorate your travels?
