Challenge 5 – A Year in Review – Sketches
Welcome to a new year of challenges, its great to be back into the swing of things! I mentioned earlier in January that my goal this year is to complete a simple journal of photos, using scraps from my desk and a ring binder A5 folder that I have.
My idea is to take the photos that don’t make it on a scrap page, photos that still tell a story or provoke a memory, and put them all together to record some highlights of our year.
I’m inviting you all to take this little journey with me, create your own journal and enjoy a simplified process of scrapbooking at the same time. Each month, I will be showcasing a sample from my journal along with a matching sketch for you to use as inspiration. Take the sketch and interpret it however you please, enjoy the process of recording your memories, and use up some of your favourite scraps of pattern paper.
I am working a month behind, so each month, my sketch will be for a page about the previous month.

Challenge 6 – Book of Me Album – Miss Mandy – this is a chance to scrap about yourself. Mandy will be creating layouts and ideas to get you going with scrapping about yourself for the next generation.
