The Story Scrapbook Challenge

Before you dive into this challenge I want you to stop what you’re doing and think.  For this challenge I want you to tell a story about what is on your mind RIGHT NOW.    How often have we mentioned that scrapbooking is a very cathartic activity, we can find so many answers to questions we didn’t even know we were asking in the pages we create.

So right now, right this very minute now, what’s on your mind?   Do you have a busy schedule coming up, stressed about a future event, are you planning a party, are you worried about the future, are you expecting a baby bundle, are you looking at the housework and everything else is appealing to you except that task, are you studying for the future, are you worried about how you are going to pay the next bill, are you excited for a holiday, are you planning something wonderful, are you just living day to day, are you only just existing or are you bursting at the seams???

This can be a really great chance to show your state of mind right this very minute, and in the future looking back you’ll feel proud you got through a tough time, or pffft why on earth were you worried about something, or happy to look back on some terrific memories.

Easy?  Well get to it.  It’s your story to tell.

The creative team have jumped on board with some wonderful pages.

Trace (tracermajig) has made an incredible change in her life and her health and wellbeing and she questions herself as to why she left it so long because she feels so wonderful right now.  I adore this.


Supplies used by Trace:    Blendables Layered Template No. 52,  Clock Parts No. 09,  Emilia Kit (tape measure),  Ledger Paper Pieces Spring No. 01,  Margot Kit,  Pinned Pearls No. 01,  Worn Tops Do-it-Yourself.

Liz (lizj) has put together a list page, these are great pages as over the years what you are loving and feeling and experiencing right now will be different than last year, or different again from next year or ten years from now.  We all ought make one of these pages.

As for my page, I was knee deep in packing for a weekend away and decided to scrapbook instead, as you do right?  Or not!  So my thoughts on this page were very very real, I was packing for a race I was doing and I was frantic about not forgetting to pack my runners.
