Cheryl's Monday Motivation

O.K. Let me give you something to think about. What kind of things interest you about the past? It is always interesting to me to hear people talk about the cost of things years ago, or to look at the books or cards that tell us what songs or movies were popular in certain years.

So, I think it will be interesting to future generations to see a scrapbook page with information about our time. Maybe do a page about the year you were born, or the year you married......The President was.... Bread cost.... the most popular movie was... Anyway, you get the idea!

Here is a page that I did a few years age about my son's first day of Sr. year. It was funny because even though it was only a few years ago, the prices seemed cheap to me. The journaling strips give the price of his shirt, jeans, shoes, & backpack, then the bottom strip says, "Watching you grow up...PRICELESS!
Have a great week & get to scrappin'!

Check in tomorrow for Technique Tuesday!
