We are officially in week 8 of our school holidays and I can honestly say it's been fun, lazy mornings, playing outside, camps, travelling to see family and friends, and spending time working on our own projects. School holidays get easier as the kids get older and there's less need to over organise, you can just go with the flow.
This can leave us scrapers with a problem. How is it best to document all these random activities?
My answer is to take the odd photograph and enjoy the moment.
Whilst this can lead to a disjointed project life spread, less full page layouts and even slipping behind, it really doesn't matter. I've the perfect solution…digital scrapping.
Using the Project Life app I've documented in 'real time' and captured the story, no fuss. In fact I'm so thrilled with the overall cleanness of the pages in my 12×12 album I'm going to go back 15 weeks and redo the spreads from my album in this format. Ok, please pick your jaws up from the ground. I know this is drastic, but it really won't take me long as I've already done the journaling and decided what photos to use. Also I can bob out about 5 pages in the morning before the kids wake up. It may take me a week to complete this but in my opinion it will be worth it. The fun bit will be adding journaling and embellishments onto the photographs and layouts to add dimension once they arrive.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and happy scrapping!
