Well I did it. Why I waited (wasted) 35 years I have no idea. Last Friday I got my ears pierced. I let my eldest get her ears pierced on her birthday, and I decided I would join her. I didn't scream faint or die, and neither did she. I took these photos straight after, and look, we aren't traumatised messes! My photos were printed and story recorded within a few days, while the memory is fresh and while I was still 'in the moment' in my head. Here is the photo that I took of us in the mirror at the salon, though you can't see our new earrings,
and below is double page layout about the event. Thanks to Jo, whose comment from my last post inspired my title. So loved scrapping it so quick. It really is far more inspiring doing it right then and there, rather than waiting for months to get around to it.
Of course you can't scrap everything just after it happens (just ask my Christmas photos from last year), but it sure does help with some of those key events that you require journaling from a fresh mind.
The main photo here was 6 x 8 and the others were cropped down 4x6's. PP is old American crafts. That scallop punch is from Stampin' Up. Feel free to double click on the image if you want to read the full story.
See you very soon!
Time for a new sketch challenge?
