Last month I started a project that's a little more personal. While I feel okay sharing these layouts with other people, the scrapbook itself is mostly just for me. This 12x12 album is for documenting my 20's so far. It's a slow process, going back and documenting the last 4 years. And there are a lot of moments that weren't fun. Mostly way this scrapbook is just for me. There's a lot of personal journaling about what I was going through. I've already formed a strong appreciation for this album. While my life has had a lot of unexpected bumps in the road, it's all part of a beautiful journey. I want to make sure I remember that journey and always appreciate where it's taken me.
The first page is more of an album title page, with just my name and pretty paper. I think what I love most about this album is my ability to take my favorite items, the most gorgeous supplies from my stash, and make recording these memories beautiful, even if living them wasn't always.
I may or may not share more layouts from this album, depending on how personal and gritty I get with the journaling. Do you guys keep an album just for yourselves to look back at? Not so much for your family, friends or future children, but just for you? Do you document the less than stellar moments in life, the downright heartbreaking ones?
I think this project has quickly become one of my favorites. It's nice to be able to look back and say "wow, you've been through a lot, but gosh it was worth it."
