Stocking Up on Inspiration

As soon as the shock of Simple ceasing publication faded a bit, I went out to the Creating Keepsakes website to order any special issue I had missed out on and could get my hands on.

The layout I created this morning was inspired by this special issue, Scrapbook Shortcuts.

One evening this week while Garrett was playing in the bathtub I asked him a few questions from one of the quizes. I wasn't sure he was old enough to do this little exercise but I was pleasantly surprised.

I didn't feel the need to go and grab my camera because I already knew I had the perfect shot. The picture used in the layout has been living in my storage albums in 2008 Q3. Yet another perk of my storage albums is that everytime I flip through them I am mentally taking inventory.

So, instead of forcing the moment because I needed a picture to go with this memory I just sat there, listened to my little guy and scribbled like crazy. He kept saying "Tell Me Something Else." Now, he thinks this is a game to play. Just LOVE my Library of Memories!

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before but I use Pioneer Albums for my storage albums. I have been extremely pleased with them and found a great deal at Costco. You don't have to be a member to order they just add a 5% surcharge to the price. Unfortunately, they are only available online.
