How I Started Scrapbooking

This layout came together in an odd fashion.     I had to write a bio for myself and I can never remember exactly what year I started scrapping but I knew it was while I had a broken ankle.   So I went thru my picture albums on my computer to find these pictures and get the dates.     So while looking at the pictures I decided these would be perfect for a challenge for the yahoo group I'm in to do a lot of a handwritten journaling to tell a story.    Then yesterday I saw the sketch at "Let's Capture Our Memories" #79 and thought it would work great to use a lot of pictures, room for a large title and also a space for a lot of journaling.    Viola my layout is made and a fun story is told.

What a great LO. You have done well with the challenge and what a great way to tell how you started scraping. The challenge was just right for all those pics, I must say it looked very painful. Well done on the challenge and good luck. Thanks for joining in at Let's Capture Our Memories.
