Do you know, I never describe myself as a memory keeper? My layouts are never about recording memories – it’s a creative outlet for me all the way.
And as a minimalist, I still don’t even keep most of my pages (don’t tell the ladies that get upset about these things, will you?)
Trouble is, I have memories that I need to record and I have no idea how to go about it.
Well, not so much memories as a bunch of old photos and snippings that I need to somehow sort out.
Yes, that’s me on the left: a star.
Oh, how I wanted to be the moon and wear gold, but no: a silver star. But hey: am I rocking that tinsel skirt, or what?
So I need some advice.
How best to sort and store all this stuff. Because the future me needs to remember that my dogs were, “hoovers for food.”
Project Life wouldn’t be the solution here, as I need those pages to be pretty.
I just do.
The Rev. suggested making some sort of mini book or accordion album, but… meh: those photos are mainly from the seventies – they’re almost all orange.
Some of them would certainly be layout-worthy… but I guess we need to remember my track record for not keeping layouts intact for more than two seconds and these photos are meaningful.
Look at my mum there: what a total beaut.
And my Dad looking like one of The Beatles…
I could of course, just sling them all in a cute box. But that doesn’t seem very scrapbooker-y, does it?
I could scan them in and create a blurb book, but then what happens to the originals?
Or I could just go completely old school and buy – gasp – a photo album.
What would you do? Help a girl out!
