Let's Talk about Scrapbooking

When I was little, my Mum and I used to always get our camera film developed and then spend an afternoon inserting them into photo albums. My love of photography definitely started very young, but then things changed and I went to school, our lives got busy, my Mum had my little sister and photo albums were forgotten. Can we do 8 years of photo albums now? I've decided that I want to start photo albums remember my teenage years, even if Mum never continues hers. I'm turning 14 on Saturday, so it's a good time to start. Coincidentally last Sunday, my Mum and I started printing photos of our holiday in Queenstown to stick on the wall of our kitchen (above). It's so much easier these days thanks to technology and home photo printers.

I'm going to do my scrapbooks with a handmade ring binder (I'll show you how next week) and the layout inside will be inspired by Elsie's Project Life album with other patterned cards amongst the photos (above). I'm not going to buy a binder and photo pockets like most who participate in Project Life, instead I'm just going to glue them onto paper with binding rings so I can be more creative with decorating my albums and collecting other keepsakes to go with it.

I hope I can keep up with my photo albums like Elsie and many others can. I really want to be able to remember special moments. I take enother photos, I've just got to put them to good use. How do you collect your photo memories? This month I'm going to be sharing different ways to share and remember the special photos that you should always be able to see and treasure. xx Harri
