Sometimes, though, I really want to just look back at the past and scrapbook about it.
Do you really plan out what you are going to make or do you just let it happen?
(And you will have fun making it!)
My story here is that my children were all born several years apart and I wanted to document and compare how things were - how I was as a person - when they were toddlers. Each time I was a different kind of mother because each time everyday life was a different situation.
Flair, tags from October Afternoon and the "Everyday Eclectic" line of patterned paper. (I used an 8x 8 inch pad for this, still have lots of paper left over for other projects). All super sweet products!
My kids grew out of toddlerhood years ago, so obviously I can not truly and honestly recall tiny little everyday details now. But there is also a maturity in letting time past and seeing the broader picture of how things were. I really loved looking back on my memories and putting them down on paper.
If you feel inspired to create a scrapbook page or project, I think it really doesn't matter if it happened yesterday or ten years ago. You and the people in your scrapbook will love that you took the time to create a way to honor your memories.
