Week 8 was another mish-mash of everyday moments, so I kept the journaling cards simple and light using the pale green journaling cards of Project Life Olive edition. I’ve really been digging the doodling and free-hand borders I’ve seen around the traps lately, so I used them on all of my journaling card this week. It’s a simple way to tie the spread together without distracting from the photos in any way.

For some reason I’m very much liking the simplicity of the single flower on my title card this week. Purple is not a colour I use much of at all, but in my recent spell of using up my stash, I felt drawn to these old purple alphabets. But then it was a chore finding something else purple! Lucky I have sooooo many paper flowers that I really haven’t been using this past year, some of which happened to be the perfect colour. I’m actually liking using the 3×4 slots for my title card – I may have to do that more often!
Tip: Give the camera to someone else in the family – you’ll get some interesting perspectives (and you may have to delete a lot of photos of the carpet or ceiling while little fingers get used to using a camera LOL)

I’m not afraid to write on photos. Let me clarify – I’m not afraid to write on photos where I have digital copies. And it can be really useful for filling in some ‘white space’ on the photo.
Might I just add… how lucky did I feel going through all those old photos – it truly was a time warp and I loved every second. Photos, especially old photos, hold an energy like nothing else… My Grandma did/does scrapbooking too – I love that we share that interest. I say did because she still has the tools, but just hasn’t done any in a few years. I am hoping to get her back into it soon, with me!
