Happy New Year to you!
Yesterday I mentioned that I wanted to create a layout a day in January. Guess what I did yesterday? Completed nine layouts (18 pages). Yay for that. I wanted to get a jump-start on the month and thought I’d do a little catching-up before January officially arrived, but didn’t realized I’d be so productive. The key word is completed. All of the pages were ones that I had started, but hadn’t finished or journaled on. But still … seriously productive and a great way to start of my scrapbooking goal. I’m still going to try to do 31 layouts (62 pages) in January.
Today I’m thinking about LOVE. I took some engagement pictures for some friends recently and finally got around to really going through them this week.
Photographing Aimee & Vaughn definitely ranks as one of my all-time favorite photo shoots. Hanging out with two young people who are so fun, so willing to do “whatever” for the camera, so in love, and beginning their lives together … that’s just cool. And I happen to love them too! I’ve known both of them since they were 12 years old, and … fast-forward several years … Aimee was a huge help to me/our family for about a year recently. I made her a little scrapbook, which some of you may remember (see July 17 post).
By the way, this is them. : )
And speaking of love, be sure to check out the brand-new KOTM here. Robin Johnson designed a scrapbook kit called “The Greatest Love Story”. Since David’s and my love story is already well-documented (I started scrapbooking around the time that we met), I put this album together for my parents who just celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary last week.
It comes in this beautiful tin.
The cover page.
And a few inside layouts.
I love how it turned out and the fact that it took me only an hour & a half to put together, including pictures. Now it’s off to my parents & with a little encouragement, they’re going to fill in the blanks and write their own love story. In their own handwriting, of course.
Do you have your love story documented? (You don’t have to answer that. Just something to think about.) Robin’s kit could help you get it done.
May 2008 be filled with love in your life!
