In March I had the opportunity to visit my parents in Washington state and it happened to coordinate with the annual tulip festival in Skagit Valley. Mom and I experienced a beautiful day
touring the tulip fields.
As my mom’s memories recede further and further away it’s become more important for me to capture the moments and what I have found is that I am more focused on scrapbooking the here and now instead of the boxes of older photos I have ..why?? Because the current stories are the ones I know in detail right now. If I put the current moments away to focus on the older stories where some of the who,what, where, why have been lost the current stories also lose those. I am still working on the boxes of photos I have and am not foregoing those it’s just that mom’s memory loss has made me realize the importance of what I do remember at this moment.
For these pages I used the Happiness Is project life kit and it’s coordinating accessory pack – both retiring and both currently 50% off. I will admit to hoarding a stash of the Happiness Accessory packs at that price because of the cork letters. Love those self-adhesive letters perfect for sand, beach, dirt, texture, dimension… so many reasons to have your own stash of them.
All photos were printed on my Selphy Printed and I added text to my photos before printing with a free website PicMonkey. For printing 4×6 and 4×3 with my selphy I use picstitch app on my phone.
Price shown for Happiness Packs is Full price – currently available at 50% off
