Library of Memories progress!

There is so much water everywhere!


There is a small bridge we drive over to get home...our house is in that group of trees in the middle of the photo. The ice has broken and the water is rushing under the bridge. It's fun to stop, roll the windows down and listen to it.

I am taking the Library of Memories class at Big Picture Scrapbooking and have been feeling a little behind. It's a system of organizing photos and scrapbooking by telling stories and making connections rather than chronologically. I have already been implementing this system for about a year but there's so much to learn I thought I could really benefit from the class. The problem is making the time to listen to the weekly audio files and watching the slide shows.

Last night I saved the audio files to my ipod and then listened to them this morning while I was cleaning kennels at the vet clinic. I don't know why I didn't think of that 5 weeks ago! When I got home, I set my laptop up on the kitchen counter and watched the slide shows while I made dinner, ate and cleaned up. Then I pulled out all of my layouts (picture below) and sorted them into the 4 categories for my albums. All that's left is to make my title and section pages but I need to order more paper before I can start those. I'm feeling much better now!
