I haven't scrapped Miller's new apartment yet, mostly because I'm working on a digi-project picture to hang, and I want to have that finished. I'd also like to get some decent curtains to hang, but I have a feeling that might take me a while. But, I have been scrapping. I'm trying out the challenges at The Lily Pad for June, so some of the following layouts were prompted by those.
I like minimalism in my scrapping, and this next one is maybe a bit extreme, but I love the layout. It uses ONE paper and ONE element - does that even count as scrapbooking?? We've had a little break in building train tracks, thanks to Imaginext, but I found this pic from a few months ago. I love the tracks passing several times across the view, and the little guy in the back in his usual attire.

This one is just a cute pic, couldn't think of any journaling to add.

And this next one is just another everyday type memory - but I was able to throw in some thoughts about the struggles of getting a photo out of him.

And another everyday photo. I often feel somewhat unsatisfied when I create a layout that just decorates a photo. It feels lacking if there is no story to tell. In this photo, Miller was just looking through a book that he pulled down from the shelf. I think it was a "how the world works" kind of book. Some of the pictures were of planets. But there wasn't really a story here - he was just looking at a book. And why did I take the photo? Because the visual of the open book on the floor with the pages rising out from the spine was interesting to me. But I was happy to give it a more personal meaning through the word "sciencer," which Miller uses for "scientist."

This last one is a "bonus" page for Project: Love, Me. Unless, perhaps, if it fits into a later week's prompt - then I will insert it there. Cherries and avocados and artichokes are probably my three favorite foods, and it occurred to me that I have a few things to say about artichokes, so I scrapped them.
