Happy Memorial Day! We hope that you are enjoying your extra long weekend with family and loved ones!
Here’s your challenge this week: Tell a story on a single layout. For example, in the May/June 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine, Smitha Katti’s journaling tells the story about how much her husband had changed in the span of a year after the birth of their daughter. By writing down these thoughts, Smitha not only has a beautiful page to put in her scrapbook, but she’ll have these memories forever!
In honor of this day, might we also suggest scrapbooking a layout about someone in the military.
Besides signaling the start of summer, Memorial Day, more importantly, is a wonderful opportunity to honor and remember those who have given their lives for our nation. Scrapbooking offers us a creative way to pay tribute to those amazing men and women who selflessly have served or currently are serving this country. Here’s a favorite military page of mine that was featured in a previous issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. I hope it inspires you to scrapbook about someone past or present that has served in the military.
We challenge you to create a layout about a recent story or one you’ve been meaning to scrapbook. And don’t forget to leave us a comment tellins us about it!
Have a wondeful day!
