I don't know about you, but I am in a bit of a scrapping rut. I desperately need to finish a wedding album that I am working on for a former co-worker, and hopefully Katie's post will help to get me moving in the right direction.
We took a little break from snap.scrap.share last month, but I'm back here at Julie's, and I'm so happy to be here!
I've been working on an engagement scrapbook for a long time, but when I was putting together my chronological "regular" scrapbook albums, I was sad that I didn't have anything engagement related in them. All of those layouts were in my engagement album, and I felt like something major was missing as I flipped through those albums.
So I decided to make new versions of layouts covering the same events to put in those albums.
This was my first layout. I used a divided page protector, and pictures of my rings that I took right after we got them.
For my new layout, I decided to use the same big picture strip of all of the rings that I tried on. This was important for me to use again, because trying on all the rings was a really big part of ring shopping for me.
But I also wanted to add my all time favorite picture of our rings, which I hadn't taken yet when I made this layout! So I was pretty happy to be able to add it into my scrapbook :)
I also borrowed the same journaling that I used in the original layout for my second layout. I was making this new page about 18 months after the fact, and I thought my "old" journaling was better than what I could have written this past June! But I figured it is the same story, I just wanted it in two different places!
It was really fun to re-create this layout. Its not something I usually do, and doing it with my engagement album was the first time I ever re-scrapped something that was already "done".
Have you ever gone back and re-done an event in a new page?
