Does it even seem fair that a godson much younger than I would get to go to Europe before I have even set foot out of the country? I think not, but they - him and his girlfriend - didn't seem to care. They had just graduated from college a semester early. The time was now, so they left without a glance back and had a blast for two weeks. While gone, they emailed and posted photos on Facebook. I think mainly to taunt me. His mom had a great idea. She wanted to make a mini album for them and have it ready the day they arrived home. Did I mention she claims that she is not a scrapper? Well, a tiny bit of her is, but she is resisting. To keep her calm I call her an archivist. and put her in charge of cropping and printing photos. As of now, she has no idea that archivist means scrapbooker. HA! So we lived vicariously through their photos and made the following:
Lots of blank room for them to journal and add more photos. I could have made up stories, but that kind of goes against the law of being an archivist. They loved it. I used up lots of old supplies and got to spend a large amount of time with my friend. Scrapbooking has it's moments. This was one of the best.
