Play it Again with words

I am so excited to bring you another round of “Play it Again” and share with you many different ways to digi scrap the same memory. This is a great way to illustrate some of the many possibilities that exist when it comes to digital scrapbooking! Here at The Daily Digi we really want to emphasize that there is not a “right way” or a “wrong way” to put together a layout. It’s more about capturing the memory, finding your own style(s), and PLAYING! Yes, it’s ok to play and have fun!

THE INSTRUCTIONS:

This time, I asked a few of the best scrappers in the digi community to scrap a journaling entry that I used on a page back in 2007. The only rule they had to follow was to include my original wording. Everything else (including the title) was up to them!

THE JOURNALING:

Enjoying life is something I strive for each day. I like to think I’m the type of person who appreciates and enjoys the little things around me, and I know that being a scrapbooker has reinforced that part of my personality. Whether I create a layout about a special event, a big vacation, or a simple or silly topic like crazy socks, I am taking the time to cement the memory and share it with others. Even more difficult experiences can be scrapped and somehow, that makes them more bearable. For me, the journaling is an extremely important component of preserving the memory. Real and authentic journaling helps me process what was memorable and enjoyable about each experience. It’s easier for me to find the good in things (and people) by taking the time to scrap and write about my memories.

I enjoy life and I love scrapbooking!

THE RESULTS:

I’m in awe of Ronnie’s layout here with all the beautiful and artsy details. The doilies, butterflies, and word art are all just fantastic! This page feels like an art journal layout and it has such a fun mixture of ingredients.

I absolutely adore photos of flowers and the path in this picture makes a perfectly framed journaling space. Vicki did such a nice job with the text treatment on this layout – I love how it starts out big and gets smaller as it winds down the path.

Lorelei always has such a creative flair for putting together fabulous pages and I really like the brushwork and splattered and worn look of this layout. That lady with the binoculars is just awesome!

Kristen used dividing boxes on the page to showcase words and embellishments. This feels like a shadow frame of memories and it is so much fun!

This page was actually created in early 2007 and I used it as the basis for this challenge. I thought about redoing it, but then I decided that I’m ok with how it is. This page represents what my style was like at the time and the artsy paper makes for a colorful backdrop for my journaling.

enjoy the process 2007
