Remembering the Little Things | November at Simple Scrapper

Posted on

What are those little things that you are enjoying right now? Those things that you think you will always remember but quickly fade from memory as life marches on? I know that I always think I will remember the things that are important to me at some point in time, but my memory often fails me. So I have begun documenting more of my everyday life in hopes of leaving a record of the things that have been important to me.

To document my current favorites, I used a sketch from the Simple Scrapper membership. This sketch allows for five photographs—plenty of room to showcase pictures of the little things in life. Right now I am enjoying riding my horse, times when my children are all together again (my oldest is off at college), doing barn chores on sunny mornings, watching my cat sleep in my IKEA cart, and soaking up the beauty of nature.

There are also specific days of which I want to remember every single detail. This month’s story starters are all about writing letters, so I wrote a letter to myself about a recent wonderful day I shared with my family. I turned this page into a two-page spread in order to give enough room to the journaling and include several photographs.

Fast February | Part II

The final two layouts I made with this kit—Bee-lightful–and the sketch are both double-page spreads.

For this page, I combined my chosen sketch with a sketch from Citrus Twist Kits that included two square photos that I thought would complement my sketch. I liked the clean lines of the design, which would go well with the simplicity of the original sketch.

The photographs on this page are from a recent walk I took with my kids in our woods. I am always amazed by the beauty of the forest even in the dead of winter!

Finally, I took the sketch and paired it with a pocket page.

I had several Instagram photos on my phone that simply showed what our life has been like over the past few months. Using the sketch and a pocket page, I was able to get all of these pictures in a spread quickly and easily.

This kit and sketch were “bee-lightful” to work with! I am looking forward to another kit this month. I hope to do more scrapping during March!
