This week’s scrapbooking idea is an easy and useful one. In the sense that if you have many events and occasions happening in the span of a month, and yet you didn’t have the time or don’t even feel like scrapbooking about each happening, here’s the remedy. The next best thing I imagine would be to collate some of your favorite photos and do a scrapbook page on them, in a single sitting! :-)
This would be a great idea if you’re really busy and don’t have time to scrapbook several times a week or even once a week. Instead of getting all stressed up that you haven’t “caught up”, how about doing a scrapbook album consisting merely of your favorite photos for each month? Each month’s layout could be a single or double-page spread. So at one glance, you’ll be able to share with others your favorite photos.
I would like to point out that for this idea, just pick those photos you really like. Don’t worry that each photo must be representative of every single event that happened in the month. It boils down to showing off those photos that appeal to you for one reason or another. You don’t even need a reason for it. :-)
Now that I think about it, with the convenience of digital cameras, we’re probably taking way too many photos. Doing a “Favorite Photos of the Month” layout will push us to really narrow down to a few favorites instead of hundreds.
For me, I’ve chosen 10 photos covering five different events of July. There’s a lot of stuff going on for me in July but I chose only photos that caught my eye. Perhaps it’s due to the way I look, or it brings back some lovely memories, or it just makes me happy in some way to look at each of these photos.
Ok, now it’s time for you to sit down and start your “screening” process. Weed out all those you don’t really like and keep only your favorites! Have fun!
