Sometimes I Scrap...

Sometimes I scrapbook memories, telling the story of the photos and what they meant to us at that time.  Sometimes I scrapbook the photos, telling just the people and vital information of all those generations past.  Sometimes I scrapbook for fun, choosing from the 100s of photos in order to just play with the pretty paper and fun embellishments.  And sometimes, once in a while, I scrapbook to tell stories of which there will never be photos taken by me or my family - stories about our life, our likes, our dreams.  This layout is one such story... a story with photos taken from the internet in order to tell the story of dreams - a story that belongs in the Book of Me.

Cardstock: The Paper Studio; Pattened Paper: American Crafts, Echo Park, Pink Paislee; Washi Tape: K&Co; Stickers: American Crafts, Echo Park, The Paper Studio; Chipboard: Studio Calico; Mist: October Afternoon; Punches: EK Success, Fiskars, Marvy Uchida; Ink: Colorbox, Ranger; Pen: Sharpie; Other: Photos from Internet

I have to admit that the page was a direct result of being jealous over the travel pages in the Scrapbook Remix class.  But it was also a story I wanted told: the story of how these are the places I dream of seeing, something that my grandchildren need to know about me.  So even though I had to 'borrow' the photos to tell the story, it definitely has a place in my album... and I am not ashamed one bit that these are not my photos nor my adventures to tell.

Got a dream that you want people to know about? Borrow some materials and create beautiful stories all about you.
