I participated in my first Layout a Day last February and it really has changed the way I scrapbook. I'm not just putting pictures on a page with pretty papers and embellishments with a little bit of journaling of the who, what and where. I have learned to really focus on the stories.
Those are the pages I love to go back to that give a glimpse into what was really going on behind the pictures, why did I take the pictures, those hidden gems that I can pass on to whoever views my pages and our stories in the future.
What am I doing to prepare for LOAD right now?
I am doing a major overhaul/sort/clean/organize of my scrap room (former dining room) so I will be up and running by next weekend. That way I will be able to sit down and scrap the pages quickly because I will know where everything is! That is my Pikes Peak Scrapper Tip #3, ORGANIZE! If you haven't yet signed up for LOAD 213, it's not too late! http://www.layoutaday.com/load213/
