Today I wanted to share a few final project ideas with you. This particular layout is a rather funny "back story" to my son's Kindergarten graduation. Things don't always go as you plan. And that's ok. I think it's important to document these kinds of stories. (In fact, stories like this inspired my "Words Unsaid" workshop now available at 2Peas.) Do you have an untold school story? Be sure to add it your memories/scrapbooks!



This next layout includes a "tongue-in-cheek" title. I created the title in Photoshop and added my own embellishments. My entire family has "nerd tendencies" so I just had to document that story:


Storytelling is really important when documenting your memories. Take the time to add a little more journaling to help those who look through your scrapbooks understand your family/personal dynamic. I will always treasure these layouts that tell just a little bit more about my family.

If you enjoyed this event, I hope you'll join me in September for my "Fall Festival" FREE blog event. Just like this event, I'll share videos, project ideas, and inspiration for both fall and Halloween items and events, as well as, include a few giveaways. Mark your calendar for September 16-29th so you don't miss out on any of the ideas!


I'll announce the winners of the challenges on September 3rd so be sure to check back to see if you've won! I hope you do!
