This One Photo Scrapbooking Idea

This One Photo Scrapbooking Layout

This scrapbooking idea is to pick a photo you love and scrapbook about it. Write about the story behind the photo. Write about what that photo speaks to your heart.

It could describe the bond between you and someone special. You could narrate about your story of the week. You could pick one photo from your childhood and write about it, or it could be from your latest collection and write about how it affects you.

For me, I’ve selected a photo taken of my first niece and me during her baby sister’s one-year-old birthday celebration party. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen such a nice picture of us two. We used to take lots of impromptu close-up snapshots together.

Although young, she’s been trained to look and smile at the camera at a tender age. She’s easy to capture on camera. Ever since her baby sis came along and as she grew up rapidly, we don’t take as many photos as before. These days, it’s seldom that a lovely, proper photo of us comes by. So this one photo taken by my brother-in-law caught my eye.

I chose to highlight in bullet-points about thoughts that popped into my head when I looked at the photo.
