Through the Years

I am always on the lookout for new ideas for scrapbook pages. It isn’t that I have a lack of pictures. In fact, it’s just the opposite. With so many photos, I love to find new ways to tell stories, both in words and in pictures.

After re-reading my ALL IN ONE PLACE article, I decided to take my own inspiration and push myself to do more. My idea was simple: find photos of roughly the same date over a number of years and put them together. I love seeing what story photos from various time periods can tell when they are all together.

Because I have been doing Project 365 for six years, finding photos from similar dates was easy. I loved just going in and seeing what I found. I didn’t put a lot of thought or effort into this. Rather, I just grabbed some photos to see what kind of story they would tell.

I love seeing the passage of time right in front of me!

It was so quick and easy that I decided to see if I could find any theme with another set of pictures. This was the result:

Try it! Just go into your photo files and pull out pictures from roughly the same time of year over a number of years. Put them together and see what you create!
