A scrapbook page

My scrapbooks are very non-scrapbooky.....I scrapbook ALL my pictures I take (unless they are bad ones) and they are all chronological. Since Tim and I met in 2002, I have made 8 (12x12) scrapbooks FULL of our adventures plus 2 wedding scrapbooks, a HOUSE scrapbook with all the renos we've done and a fishing scrapbook for Tim. I'm sure people who scrapbook differently will cringe if they ever saw my scrapbooks, but I love them, and that's all that matters. I put 4 or 5 pictures on a page, I crop them, journal and put very few big embellishments on the pages - I use mostly stickers and stamps to decorate. I do use the computer sometimes for journalling or headings. I do whatever feels good, and I don't worry about matching paper and ribbons and tags and such! Here is a page I did last weekend of Brick. I had a few random pictures of him that didn't fit on any specific page. I used my spiral punch to create filmstrip type backgrounds for the pictures because he is a star (unless he pees on the floor like he did yesterday, then he's naughty!) Anyways, just thought I'd share a page - I don't normally take pictures of my scrapbook pages but I liked this one! Maybe I like it so much because Brick is so handsome!!! (Proud Mommy!!!) Thanks for looking!!!!

Oh he is s stunner isn't he? I think scrapbooking is such a personal thing, there is no right or wrong way. It's how we want to remember. I do two kinds, one is like you, heaps of photos and some journalling, the other way is more 'artistic' - it just depends on the occasion and photos.

Great layout, love your filmstrip.
