Remembering when

The two beautiful little girls in this photo are big grown up girls now.  I was inspired to put this page together when I created a card with a similar theme, and I spent a wonderful afternoon sorting through old photos.  It’s so much easier for me to choose pictures when this much time has gone by.  I don’t have the same emotional attachment to every single event I thought was worthy of documenting and it’s easier to edit and choose the memories that really stand out.

This page could be an 8 1/2 x 11 page (the pink section) if you prefer that size, but most of my pages are 12 x 12.  I’m notorious for not completing scrapbooks but I’m inspired now.  Besides, I really enjoyed looking through those photos.  The memories are sweet, and help me feel better when I miss having my girls at home.  The good news is that I’ll see them soon as we are celebrating a special family birthday next month together in California.  I’m counting the days!

  1. What a precious layout. My scrapbooks are never finished, unless it’s a special themed one. I scrap when the photos inspire me. I keep a Friends, Family, What We Do/Where We Go and a scrapbook for each grandson (am starting a third one for our new little guy born in July). Have a wonderful time in California. You’ll have lots of inspiration after your trip!
