Memorandum Monday: Project Scrapenberg Update Goin' Digital
I will tell you all about my photo session with my first scrapbook ever. Yes lovely little baby photos of Lexi...that were falling off the page. Turns out glue sticks aren't all that permanent. I learned from taking each page out for a photograph that springing for the good glue is worth it. It was not fun glueing photos back on the page!
Regardless, the whole book from 2000-2002 has been saved digitally and I used the contraption that THE MAN built to streamline the photo taking. There was still quite a bit of cropping, but honestly that is somewhat mindless...
Turns out that using it on it's side when it's sunny means that I can get good photos without much glare. I enjoyed the stroll down memory lane too!
I also figured out a really good use for those cardboard spools that I blogged about last week...oh my. So much fun that I even gave myself a hot glue burn! I'll show you what I came up with tomorrow. I was hoping that my project would fit inside those choches, but I haven't quite figured that out as of yet.
Anyhow, happiest of Mondays! Waving over to Sian with a band-aide on my thumb...silly hot glue! She hosts us for Memorandum Monday and blogs about her adventures with sock knitting, Mom-ing, and scrapping!
