As many of you know your Scrapper on the Street has been through a lot of change this year. The most recent change was moving to a new place – this means a new, bigger space to create! That is great news! But it also meant having to pack up all of my scrapbooking supplies and get them settled in the new location. This re-settling has been a slow process but we are getting there and I’m excited to dive back into my supplies and create, create, create!
October is my favorite time of year and I don’t want to miss all the fun projects we can be creating. Stay tuned as I plug along getting Insta-Fall together, we’ll have a load of fun documenting Fall favorites and holidays and food won’t we?
October is also one of the three times a year I’m usually doing Layout a Day run by Lain Ehmann. The October LOAD is for her ScrapHappy members and run by two of my amazingly talented ScrapHappy sisters. Though I have been reading the prompts I haven’t been participating daily like I used to – this is hard for me as I’ve completed over a dozen of these LOAD challenges and for more than half of these I documented each day with a video. Due to some professional changes I will no longer be filming the videos for Layout a Day – but you know there will still be plenty of videos for you fabulous followers here at Scrapperonthestreet.com.
Thanks to LOAD and my supplies being packed I have been able to create a couple of digital layouts. Digi layouts aren’t really my thing, I like getting messy and touching the papers and photos but in a pinch, a digi layout is great!
This layout was created in Photoshop using bits and pieces of kits I’ve collected over time. I tried to use all of the same elements I would in a paper layout so that my style didn’t look so drastically different. I do like the ease of adding journaling right to the page but not sure where this layout will end up.
For the layout I snapped a photo of my gym bag – not something you would think to photograph, but this gym bag was not part of my daily life until recently and to me, it tells a big part of my story. Just another way for me to encourage you to document the little things in life and discover the bigger stories they have to tell!!
Do you have every day items that tell bigger stories? Capture them and be sure to head to the Flickr Group and share your stories, pages and photos!
