8 1/2 X 11 Scrapbook Layout


Hi Friends! I am working my way through some of the stories over the past two years that I felt I really wanted to get on paper. Online school was one those stories that I had left untold. There seems to be so many “new normal” scenarios that I never dreamed we’d have to do and I feel it so important to document them. It’s been a little while since I’ve done a double layout. For this story, I wanted to show schedules and some of the “Google Classroom” rules so one page didn’t cut it. I found the lined paper in my stash – I seemed to be waiting for the perfect time to use it. That time was now! As I played with these photos across both pages, I found a balance that I quite liked.

It’s the whole reason why this story had yet to be told. Rather than skip over it again, I put the page together using primarily some American Craft thickers. Maybe I’ll go back and reprint…

We would have our bellies full by the end of the forage. Later we’d make blueberry crisp or blueberry muffins and at Nan’s house we’d have blueberries mixed with sugar and carnation milk for a treat before we’d head to bed. Looking back, I don’t know where the years have gone. Those are such fond memories. I haven’t gone out blueberry picking in years. Then one day last month, my father called and asked me to go with him on a whim. I made the time despite my calendar being blocked.
