RemARKable Memory Keeping


Maui Stamper RemARKable March Pinworthy Blog tourWelcome to the May edition of the RemARKable blog tour!

It’s National Scrapbooking month and that’s our topic for the tour.  I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I’ve only completed one scrapbook – ever – and it was intended to be Volume I of 2 to document a two-part family vacation.  While I love photos – and have boxes, bags and stacks of them – I struggle with putting them together.

Our collaboration with Project Life inspired me, and I decided to drag out a photo collage frame that’s been gathering dust and pair it with some of the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! products to see what would happen:

I had to play with one more set of photos – these are pretty special to me:

What I love about the Project Life concept is that it’s so flexible.  It can be anything you need it to be!  The objective is to record the memories in a way that can be shared – or re-visited – to keep the emotion of the moment alive.

Enjoy the rest of the tour – Audra Monk is next, but the rest of the tour is at the bottom of the post in case you want to go your own way!  Thanks for stopping by.
