So needless to say, I am super excited to be joining Lain Ehmann and hundreds of other scrapbookers for LOAD 513. As the site explains, LOAD is "31 days of brand-new video prompts and lessons, guaranteed to bust you out of any scrapbooking rut, bring a smile to your face, and make your hair shine." (There are only a few spots left for LOAD 513, so sign up here today if you are interested in playing along).
Now as a newcomer to the LOAD phenomena, I am not really sure what to expect, but when you sign up you have access to a Flickr group specifically set up for LOAD 513 and the discussion topics and the people in the group have been super gracious with their advice and their suggestions of how to make the most of the experience.
|Old scrapbooks tucked away in the attic|
My early scrapbooks were a combination of really bad photos and magazine sayings that I seemed appropriate at the time). Here is a sample of a page featuring me and my best friend from college. Check out the sunburn I was sporting in the middle photo, what was I thinking?
This page isn't as yellowed and worn as some of the others, but it does beg the question, what do I do with all of these older books? Are photos of people that I don't keep in touch with (and some that I don't even remember) worth saving? Do I spend the time to pull the photos out and scrap them correctly or is it okay to throw them away if they don't have any meaning to me anymore? I'd love to hear what you do with your old photos.
