Since I can remember, I've always had a love for old photos.
I would comb through album after album , asking a lot of questions along the way. I wish I would have kept a journal way back then of everything my Dad told me. He shared so many great stories with me. I remember a lot of things, but I hope I'm not forgetting something really great. You know?
I didn't know my grandmothers, they were gone before I was born. I'll always, always wonder what that's like---to have a grandmother. Thank God I had Aunt Ruth. I'm pretty sure I got the best of both worlds-----an amazing aunt and definitely a grandmother to me.
I've been gathering old family photos and scanning them to use in my scrapbooks. I made the photo collages with the Project Life App. So easy! I used the Cinnamon Edition in the photos above.
I slipped them into a Simple Stories binder, using a variety of different pocket pages. I'm really excited to use the Simple Stories line, Legacy. I love hybrid scrapbooking, so this will give me some digital and physical elements to work with. This photo album is 6x8, which I think is the perfect size for these types of projects. Some pages will be the full 6x8 photo spread, and others I'll make the collages.
Sometimes, I wish I could just have one day to walk through the city where I grew up, back in the day. When it was still farm land, my grandparents cafe and people walking to catch the train to town.
Boy was it hard to go back to work on Monday. We had such a fun amazing week!
Last week was my birthday, so we did a lot of celebrating. We went to Applebee's for dinner and then home for cake and ice cream. I LOVE strawberry filled cake with whipped topping. Dan always finds me the perfect cake.
We hung out with my mom and sisters on Friday. My sister treated us all to shakes at Arctic Circle. Jake loves his Aunties.
On Saturday night, we ate at Rumbi after church and then headed to a college basketball game. Weber State Wild Cats---we WON! Weber State Weber State---Great Great Great. ( I can't get this cheer out of my head). I always forget how much fun it is to go to these games. Our credit union was giving out free tickets. We got there early and scored free t-shirts. Jake of course had waaaaay too much popcorn.
Sunday, Aaron and Jess came over. Dan made his famous chicken dinner and I whipped up a really time consuming batch of Rice Krispy Treats.....ha!
At the end of each month, I look through all of my photos and make a quick Project Life layout with the app. It just gives me an idea what photos I need to print for the month and helps me along the way.
