Typically when I share a page, I am all about giving a tip or a technique that involves the product or an embellishment. Today, I would like to share the other side of scrapbooking...the importance of telling the story.
I don't just mean the good stuff or the sappy memories. That should be scrapped. But sometimes, raw emotions or real feelings we all experience need to also be documented.
I love a good ledger paper as it always gives me room to tell a story! I wanted to focus on the numerals on the left hand side of the page by creating a list. For this page, I decided to share how I am sometimes hard on my son. He is the oldest so I expect a lot. He is a really great kid and I want him to know that I know that about him. I hope one day he will look back and realize that I struggled with this feeling.
I used the arrows to point the journaling.
I also used the artisan edge to ground the photo and point to the journaling. I finished off the cluster with a brad.
I love this photo of us and the love that is captured. I am sure that he will see my pride and his joy. He will read the words written in my handwriting and he will know that I adore him.
That should be documented.
