The days we are living lately might look a bit different than before, and trips or events that we have had planned may have been changed to keep us safe. These stories still need to be recorded, even if they didn’t go exactly as planned, and that’s what DT member Kristina Proffitt did here by documenting her spring break “stay-cation”! Let’s take a look!
March was a weird month—I’m sure you probably all can relate, but it was nice to take some time off for spring break last month, relax and spend a lot of time outdoors. The weather has been beautiful lately and the sun is SO good for the soul. I loved pulling out some more April kit and add-on goodies to create this simple and sweet documentation of a few days of our week.
I’m a big fan of any and all Elle’s Studio wooden embellishments and so this one from the Spring Wood Veneers was perfect—not only because the sentiment pertained to spring, but also because of what is going on in the world. I also love the new This Week Chipboard Stickers, and the layering of them on the photo made it kind of look like a sun and blue sky, don’t ya think? Oh, and I didn’t realize until AFTER I took the photo just what my sweet son Jack was doing to his brother, which cracked me up! I swear they love one another and are good kids—they’re just a little obsessed with Nerf guns right now!
Something that I’ve been sure to do lately is get out to walk and get fresh air, so this photo of where I’m standing was a must for this layout and the “life is good” puffy sticker from the Lovely Puffy Stickers was perfect. It’s SO important to be grateful and SEE THE GOOD in it all.
The Spring Wood Veneers are so good. I loved using the “spring break” piece on the top of the 4″ x 6″ green journaling tag from the April 2020 Kit. I always keep my pages pretty simple, but some great stickers, chipboard or wooden embellishments are easy additions to give your page some depth and a bit of fun and texture!
I am loving the “Story of Today” tag in this month’s kit. I used it to tell the story of my daughter and her art. I loved the little addition of the puffy flower sticker, too. The 4″ x 6″ journaling tag in the kit was perfect for adding the journaling about our time outside during spring break. I love all of the different opportunities to use the April 2020 Kit to get these stories down.
I know what’s going on right now in the world is unprecedented. I know it’s a bit uncertain and honestly a bit scary, but it’s a great time to grab some scrapbooking goodies and get those feelings down, friends. It’s always a good idea to document the everyday happenings in your family and you’ll look back on all of this one day and not only have a lot of gratitude, but you’ll be able to see just how your life changed a bit during it all.
I was super thankful to have a spring break in the beginning of all of this. It was a good time to take some deep breaths, enjoy the sunshine and get some scrapbooking done, but I want you to remember that you can take those deep breaths every day and that the sun will still shine and that you can and should be documenting your life right now. You are living in history and your stories will be a treasure for your family!
Here’s to brighter days ahead, a lot of deep breaths, sunshine and scrapbooking!
