Welcome. This blog is my little home on the web. It's mostly about my favorite hobby, digital scrapbooking. You might also find some recipes, home decor projects, or parenting woes. But mostly digital scrapbooking.

1 Photo + Six Words

I recently blogged about how I'm getting bored of scrapping the same ol' activities year after year. Before Miller was in school I did a lot more moment scrapping. Those pages usually had just a single picture and a little journaling about parenthood or childhood. Lately I scrap out about outings, and I make a lot of double pages with lots of photos.

I thought I would try to mix moment scrapping back in. I was reminded of the article I wrote called Six Word Story for the Artisan Notebook in 2012. What I've decided to do is every once in a while I'll scrap a moment page with 1 photo and 6 words of journaling. Here is my first one.

This was a picture I took at a local art museum. There was bright light streaming through the windows, but I adjusted the exposure of the picture to correctly expose the shirt that the scientist is wearing. The windows are washed out, but I like the overall effect. Because I liked the photo so much, I wanted to do something with it. As I looked at it, I recalled that as soon as we got the the museum, the scientist headed straight over to the food shop and got some snacks. We all have our priorities.
