Good Scrapping Day

August 7, 2006

The more I blog, the more I love it as a scrapbooking tool. I did six 12×12 layouts today (and two yesterday!), which puts my year to date total at 215. I had a very easy time doing the journaling for them because it had already been done here, in my blog. I did layouts of this, this, and this.

Here’s one of the ones I did:

The title is “Walkabout” which I remembered from a Babylon 5 episode in which Dr. Franklin takes time off to walk and do some soul-searching. He explains that in Australian aboriginal cultures, a “walkabout” is a ritual in which a young man goes on a solitary journey through the wilderness in an attempt to learn more about his own character and strength. Well, Dan wasn’t alone (or young! ;-)), but it seemed fitting nonetheless. The journaling, other than a brief explanation about the title, was what I had written here in my blog.

I highly encourage scrapbookers to blog their thoughts about events as they happen. There have been so many times that referencing my blog entry has made completing a layout quicker and easier… and I find that there are more details in my blog entries (when the memories are fresh) than when I am scrapping about something some time after it occurred.
