I'm always amazed at how when things get tough and difficult to deal with that crafting provides that amazing outlet which lets you just 'be'. I photographed loads of layouts recently and I can't tell you how positive and happy looking through them made me feel. So many fantastic days out, actually that is one thing I will say for my scrapbooking, one of the reasons why I love to do it is because my scrapbooks are photographed diary entries of life - but you know that don't you, but for me scrapbooking makes me go out and enjoy life. Day trips out, places to visit, documenting things as I go. Enjoying walks through bluebell woods, sea side days pretty much everything. I'm sure that our lives would not be so varied and interesting were it not for my passion to document 'what we do' and doing the same thing day in day out means it's not interesting so you have to mix it up a bit. A visit to Harewood recently and I was thinking well we've been here before what can we do that's different and they had a play festival on and before hubby and said 12 year old knew what was happening I was signing them up for a sand sculpting class - just because it would provide something different to scrapbook - they loved it - so win win!
What do you do to keep your scrapbooking fun and different?
Anyway I digress (quite a lot of the time as you can see), todays layouts to peruse all stem back to Halloween last year, my niece decided to come dressed up as the Black Swan - she looked amazing and I got some fabulous photos of her!
