I really do love to scrapbook, but sadly enough, I don't do it as often as I would like. I know it has to do with being a bit of a perfectionist about my pictures and layouts. I find myself thinking too much and too long! I wonder if I'll love this layout a year from now! Crazy I know, I'm working on "getting over it."
Being the person that always has a camera in her hand and takes tons of pictures....more than you could ever do anything with....makes it more difficult and puts the pressure on because I know I'll never be caught up! I'm trying to just scrapbook random pictures and alternate between doing one for each of my children. That seems to be working a little better. So how do you seasoned scrapbookers manage to get alot done?
I also have a hard time choosing just which pictures will go on a scrapbook page. I like SO MANY of them that it turns into a major decision every time. Do any of you scrapbookers have that problem?
I think that fact and the actual process of pulling all my supplies out sometimes keeps me from working on a page when I really should. I don't often have a long period of time to work on a page. Recently though, I did set up a craft table upstairs in our loft area and that seems to help some. And it always help to get together with a group of like minded scrapbooking friends! It's during those times that I actually accomplish something (like the layout I'm sharing today).
Today I'm going to share a scrapbook two-page layout that I did for my son, Colt. His passion is definitely music. I wanted to scrapbook a layout that would pay tribute to his love of music and to have a keepsake CD of some of his songs that he's written or recorded with his recording equipment.
The song playing in the background is the song he sang at his homeschool senior graduation.....This is My Desire.
The above journaling reads:
A Passion for Music....This boy eats, sleeps and breathes music. Music is such a big part of his life. Colt's first interest began with singing when he was 8 years old. He moved from that to playing the piano and drums, then on to the bass guitar, then acoustic and electric guitar. Colt plays the bass guitar on our church Praise Team on Sundays. He plays the guitar and sings on the Youth Praise Team on Wednesdays. The majority of his free time is spent playing the guitar, drums or piano, singing, writing songs, recording, listening to music or planning his next music venture. Yes, I think it's fair to say that Colt's Passion is definitely Music.
Colt has also been in several bands through the years, but one thing that remains constant is his use of his talent for the Lord. He likes to play the drums every now and then and play around with the piano, but the guitar is what he loves best.
I know no matter what path lies in front of him, music will always be a part of his life.......and I'm glad.
