Before some of you go freaking out on me, I am totally proud of the scrapping that I do. Trust me, if my apartment ever caught on fire, there is a four way tie for what I would grab first - kid (although he is big enough to help me grab things), cats, pictures and scrapbooks!
In addition to my minimalist approach to scrapping, photographing said scrapping falls dismally short. I need serious help in this area. Any helpful advice that you guys can send my way would be greatly appreciated. I have a good point and shoot as well as a pretty great camera on my Android, but that is it. I long for a fancy DSLR, but right now, it just isn't in the cards.
Maybe more than anything , I am worried about the presentation. Although, for the most part I feel that I very much blog for myself when it comes to sharing things like scrapbook layouts or really anything crafty - presentation is a huge part of it....no???
Aside from this slightly whiny post....sorry about that.....I am having a blast with this scrapbook. I am documenting a girl's weekend trip to Chicago last year with two of my dear friends, Megan and Jennifer. Each layout that I do, brings back great memories of the trip. This is the first trip scrapbook that I have done for myself and I am doing my best to do journaling on every page so that when I am 80 and my memory is shot I will have something to refer to...lol. Journaling is not one of my strong suits!
