I regularly scrapbook my family on a weekly basis with Project Life, but I also have a smaller 6×8 album (or recently a Traveler’s Notebook!) that I use to scrapbook about myself. Sometimes I scrapbook selfies and journal some things that have been on my mind. Other times, I’ll take a photo of my outfit and what inspired me to put it together or what I was up to that day or what my current interest are. I think of it like a journal; one that maybe my kids will enjoy looking at one day. ❤
In this particular spread, I was documenting an outfit I wore to church one Sunday. I sing in the worship band and I usually like to dress up. It’s fun to do and makes me feel a little pretty!
When Felicity Jane’s London kit came out a few months ago and I saw the stamp set, I knew I had to have it, if only for the “outfit of the day” stamp. I love taking pictures of my cute outfits and what the kids are wearing, so I knew it would get a lot of use.
Since my outfit was neutral, I ran with the opportunity to create an overall neutral layout. I’ve been doing a lot of my personal scrapbooking with the Felicity Jane kits, so I just flipped through my FJ drawer and chose a few other neutral pieces (the black and white heart card which I stamped over) and the wood-look paper that I cut down.
The other embellishments just seemed to fit well and even though there was a touch of light pink in two of them, I was okay with how that looked. Now to just stamp the date (as soon as I figure out what date this was taken on, haha) and that’s a wrap!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope, if you don’t have a personal scrapbook already, you’ll consider giving it a try! It’s such a fun way to “journal!”
