I have to remind my kids that I'd like to actually get some good pictures each year (or else everyone in the photos will have rabbit ears and tongues will be sticking out of all their mouths). Our neighbors got what we hoped would be some great pictures of our family. I guess you can tell where this is going. The three older kids listened well, but my youngest apparently had other ideas:
Little stinker! My hubby was so mad I thought steam was going to start coming out of his ears. But oh well...LOL! I figure I can use this picture or blackmail later. Somewhere during his high school years, I'm sure some teacher or classmate will request funny pictures from his childhood and I will be happy to hand over this one!
In any event, I'm still going to scrapbook this photo, because this is how life really is for us on a regular basis. I'm hoping that this will get you thinking about the everyday photos you take and how you scrapbook them. I'm kicking around the idea of a weekly blog post centering around snapshots. I will elaborate more on this in a few more weeks.
In the meantime, here's something I'm excited to share with you: I'm fortunate to be a part of Celeste Knight's Sweet Caroline Studio creative team. Celeste designs for Pixels and Company, and you can see her digital kits here. Her work is gorgeous, and if you get a chance, you should definitely check it out. Here are a couple of my pages my with her kits:
Right now, I'm really having fun using her darling journaling cards. I'm not a Project Life enthusiast, so I haven't played with these cards much. However, since I do favor clean, simple design, these cards are a perfect little parking spot for journaling and even photos.
And, last but not least, I want to send a heartfelt thank you to the three designers who were kind enough to allow me to be a part of their creative teams during the last two and half to three years. Kerry, Jen, and Janet, I had so much fun and appreciated the opportunity you gave me to work with your amazing designs. I know you've all moved onto other adventures and wish you the best.
And now, if you've read this far, I was hoping you'd answer a question. Are regular, everyday photos mostly what you scrap? If not, what do you use in your scrapbooks? What do you do if you have a photo you want to scrap, but you don't like something about it (whether it's blurry, a boring shot, someone makes a face, the room is messy, the lighting is bad, etc.). I'd love to hear your thoughts!
