our story

same time last year, i made what is my only completed scrapbook album to date. this after more than 10 years of hoarding various scrapbook papers, tags, and embellishments.

i was on my second trimester and, in spite of the negative internal dialogue during the first three months of pregnancy, i found myself inspired enough to start on this project. i started january 2011 on this album – which was about the years my husband and i were together before we got married – and finished it, coincidentally, during the love month (not intentional. at all.).

i used a 5.75″ x 5.75″ cardstock album and paired it with various scrapbook papers and accessories (all of which were purchased from Simplejoys).

i selected pictures to represent the years before we finally tied the knot and printed text on vellum.

i also refurbished a box as storage for the album i made, in line with the theme of my pages, and placed our initials on the cover.

not bad for a first attempt, i think.

and so here’s to the cheesiest time of the year!
