getting through the scrap pile
I lost my scrapping mojo for quite a while after my daughter was born, and only regained it last November when she was a year and a half, and I was taking part in blogging for scrapbookers. So I’ve still got a lot of photos to scrap from that time, especially as it included getting married and moving house, as well as the many little girl photos!
Here’s a couple of layouts I’ve just finished from that pile of pics. The first is a layout about the house we lived in when my daughter was born, though she won’t remember it as she was only 5 months old when we moved! I wanted to make sure it was captured as part of her history:
It took me a while to decide on a title for the page, as it felt wierd calling it ‘home’ when we haven’t lived there for a year and a half, but ‘baby’s 1st home’ made it too fiddly. In the end I decided I’ll try to document all the houses we’ve lived in and will live in, giving them all the title ‘home’.
The second layout is of a photo from a month later, on the day she was 6 months old. I was thinking I’d get a nice photo of the three of us on all her birthdays, and 6 months old seemed like a milestone to start it off. Then she was ill on her 1st birthday, and hubby was working on her 2nd, so while there are lots of pics of her, there are few of us with her. Never mind! Sometimes we just have to give up on certain ideas as lost causes don’t we?
