I keep a separate album for my All About Me pages. These pages are a chance to document thoughts about my daily life, either on current events or from before I had children. My 8 year old daughter loves to flip through these pages and ask about them. And I love chatting with her about my scrapbooking!
Sometimes my AAM pages capture Big Memories — pages documenting things like my graduation from university, our engagement story, stories about trips I went on and our wedding.
But sometimes, I just want to scrapbook a little thought. And it turns out that those are some of my favourite pages! I never feel like I have “wasted” a page on something little. Even if the thoughts or memories are about little things, I think there is value in having my kids read them and, of course, I greatly enjoy the scrapbooking process.
Here are a few pages of little things about myself that I have added to my scrapbook album:
Favourite TV Shows
Taking Macro Flower Photos
Random Thoughts About Home
One thing I’ve noticed is that I’m often inspired to do these little memory pages when I have a themed kit or word art that sparks my interest. I think that because the kits often inspired these pages, they were quick and enjoyable to make. I didn’t spend hours documenting a big event or trying to preserve a factual account of something that happened. These pages just capture a few little thing that I liked at the time I made the pages.
Do you include little memories like these in your scrapbooking?
