Non-Chronological Scrapbooking

Thought I would share a couple of layouts I completed this past week that show how I am truly scrapping non-chronologically. The memories that these two layouts preserve are 37 years apart!

 The first one showcases a photo and my handprint, both from 1973. The Library of Memories Community weekly challenge  was to "Browse your Memorabilia Notebook and select something to use on a layout. Locate appropriate photos and use bullet point journaling and lots of blue." I didn't use bullet point journaling because I think the poem is all the journaling needed for this layout.

This second layout features photos from the 4th of July, just two weeks ago. I was reading a recent edition of Creating Keepsakes magazine and saw a similar layout that inspired me. I only had these two photos from the 4th, and I knew this would be a nice layout to highlight them.

This past week I also received my printed photos for the second quarter of 2010. I slipped those into my Storage Binders and they are now ready for me to scrap whenever an inspiration comes along.

Great job on both layouts. I need to get busy scrapping a lot of memorabilia that I have. Thanks for the inspiration.
