My traditional picture collection? A disaster. Plastic bins and albums full of pictures that have been long neglected until 2 years ago. Now, some of them are scanned, organized, and believe it or not, scrapbooked. Before Creative Memories, I tried to scrapbook not very successfully. You see, I am artistically challenged. I thought I had to cut circles out of the photos and try to arrange them on the page—believe me NOT pretty (someday I will put ugly scrapbook pages on this site—starting with my own). As I began scanning and organizing, I found it easier to gather a group of pictures for a traditional page. I AM still artistically challenged but I get a lot of help from the folks on the Help Zone at my website
and from page planners.
As you see in the photo, I want a way to remember my son’s 3rd birthday with all of the fun and friends. A collage is the best way to display these wonderful memories. You don’t have to do it complicated, you don’t have to add a lot of bling. Just pure and simple memories arranged in a simple way.
I didn’t even have to cut circles in the pictures. If I can organize and scrapbook my pictures, you can too—give it a try. Need help, ask your personal photo coach—ME! Happy scrappin’
