This is a page I've just finished for last November when we took Barnaby to a dressage competition. He was so naughty in the end I couldn't ride him and hubby had to do it! Here's the page.
I have only done this in a normal scrapook and have one more to go before I can start using proper 12" x 12" paper, which I'm really looking forward to, but using a normal book has meant I've had to be quite inventive. I've also noticed I go into a slightly different brain mode when I'm scrapbooking as opposed to card making. I can take up to two days to put a scrapbook page together and don't stick anything down until I'm completely satisfied, otherwise I'll start thinking, 'I could have done that!' afterwards, when it's too late. I have learned so much about paper and layouts and my own imagination. A couple of months ago I thought it was silly to do such an amateur book, but one of the pages, where I've said what I really think, nearly made me cry when I came across it the other day. It's such a wonderful way of preserving memories rather than having a pile of photos and thinking, 'When was that? Who are these people? When did we go there?' I've noticed that I think in words, too, and find it really useful to write ideas down first, and then illustrate my thoughts. No wonder it's such a satisfying hobby.
Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you're getting time to craft or do whatever it is you like doing best!
