Studio Calico's latest release - Documentary - should be hitting stores right about now.................. and to celebrate we are doing a blog hop!
As scrapbookers, we are definitely all about documenting.... our lives, our people, our memories, our stories.... and on and on....
I personally love to document the little details or little thoughts that enter my mind and heart when I see a certain photograph. I don't always journal directly about what is happening in the photographs but instead I try to write about the feelings I get when I look at those images.... and often I do combine both together because it is also nice to document events and things that happen in our lives. And still other times I use my scrapbook pages simply as a way to write little notes to my family -- to tell them how much I love them and what I love about them.
This is partly why I love scrapbooking so much -- it is so great that we have this outlet to document whatever we want about us and our loved ones... there are literally no rules!
Most everything on this layout is from the Documentary line. I love the rich bright colors that can either go completely boyish (like I did) or could also be combined with some pinks to take on a more feminine look. To create this layout I played along with the Sunday Sketch that happens each week on the Studio Calico blog and used this one by Jennifer Johner. I pretty much used the sketch exactly except that I flip flopped it. I typically find sketches hard to stick to personally but Jennifer and I have similar styles so I knew this would be a fun one for me to try out! I have always loved her scrapping style and then when I found her blog I thought it was pretty cool because we have very similar decorating tastes as well! Funny how you can become linked to people through the internet that are so similar to you in lots of different ways!
