A Treasure Trove

A few weeks ago while working on my Week in the Life project, I went to my husband’s Facebook page to look for a specific photo he had taken that week and that I wanted to use in my album. I started scrolling through his photos and found so many pictures I did not even know he had!

One of photos I found was of a trip to Washington, DC, he and the kids took last year. We were all originally supposed to go, but I had to stay home to study for and take my state EMT certification exam. When I discovered this picture, I immediately wanted to scrap it. I used a sketch from Get It Scrapped that I had pinned on Pinterest.

The photo was from an iPhone, so I was a little worried about printing it so large. Much to my surprise, the picture looked great coming out of the printer at 8.5×11.

Out on my desk was the May main kit from Citrus Twist Kits. The die cuts in the kit were perfect for the theme of this layout, so I used several of them. I strategically placed the journaling card so that it covered many of the people in the background of the photo.

I loved finding this little treasure trove of photos! I have several more pictures from my husband’s feed that I want to scrapbook. I love the fact that through these photos, I am able to include events in my scrapbooks that I did not actually experience. Look for more of these layouts in future posts!

  1. What a great page! It’s fun to discover photos and be able to scrap events/happenings that you might not have seen or experienced yourself. I do that often with my daughters’ Instagram accounts.
    I love the big photo – it makes such a great statement and really shows the statue that might otherwise be overlooked if the picture was printed in a smaller size. That stack of embellishments on the top right is lovely too.

  2. What a fabulous layout! I love that you used an 8.5×11 photograph – I’m always inspired by scrappers who can use larger photos like that as it’s something I really struggle with. The cluster of embellishments in the top right-hand corner is also a nice touch.
