Looking Back

December is always a time of reflection for me. I look back over the year that is just about to end and marvel at how fast the time has gone. This month at Simple Scrapper, the focus has been on the past–a timely subject for this month. 

In my first layout, I looked to the past, but not very far back. My daughter and I had just recently taken a road trip to Kentucky for her thirteenth birthday. This trip was a first for us–we had never taken a girls-only weekend before. So I wanted to document this event fairly quickly. I chose two photos that best represented our trip and used one of December’s Sketch Templates to create my page.


In my second layout, I went much farther into the past. Back in 2000, my husband and I made a cross-country move from North Carolina to California. We lived in San Jose for two years–it was an incredibly exciting time! I didn’t start scrapbooking until just before we moved back to NC, so I don’t have many pages about the life we led there. Luckily, I found two photos of us in front of our house in CA, so I used a December Sketch Template to pull this page together.



Scrapbooking about the past can be very rewarding. The December Story Starters and Sketch Templates at Simple Scrapper can get you started in the right direction. So check out the site and if you are not already a member, sign up now on the membership page!
