Short and sweet tonight...because if I don't get to bed soon, the Day 4 prompt is going to hit my e-mail inbox and then I might not ever make it to bed! This LOAD thing is highly motivating and addicting to me! If you're a scrapbooker and needing some motivation, or thinking about getting into scrapbooking your photos and don't know how to get started, click HERE to find out about Layout A Day!
Today's prompt encouraged us to scrapbook about ourselves. This was HARD for me as I'm normally behind the camera, not in front of it! And, from the comments I saw on other LOAD participants, that is a common issue.
But, as I thought about the prompt and scrolled through the years of photos in Memory Manager, one thing kept coming to mind...I always wanted to be a Mom, but it's WAY more than I ever could've imagined. So, here's what I ended up with...
Another benefit I've noticed from the LOAD Challenge is that I am getting inspiration from others. I have noticed several layouts that I really like. One concept is to make a "You are X" page...X being the person's age. Then you describe the person and what they like, what they're involved in, etc at that age. I think that's a fun idea for the kids' books. I also saw a 12 on 12 thing where basically take 12 photos on the 12th of the month and then create a layout with them...some of them have been pretty cool. This ends up being similar to the calendar albums I used to do.
OK...enough rambling. If you're keeping track...I'm 3 for 3 now! I'm just happy to have 3 layouts done!
