It was while I was considering the dilemma of lack of storage space for full scrapbooks that I was sidetracked by browsing through Volumes 1 and 2 of The Boy Child’s albums.
They’re shockingly awful. I don’t say that in the hope that you will leave a comment in order to contradict me and tell me how marvellous my scrapbooking skills were.
They’re shockingly awful because I was new to scrapbooking and I didn’t have a clue as to what I was doing. I used a full sheet of patterned paper, added a photo or two (at a ‘funky’ angle) and chucked a few embellishments around. Called it done. Most pages have very little information bar a date.
Thirteen years later, I have found my groove. Somewhere between intermediate and occasionally advanced. Beginning with Volume 1, I am redoing the album in Project Life format, with additional traditional 12×12 spreads for the particularly cute/adorable/funny photos.
Would you reconsider reworking any of your early scrapbook albums?
