My scrapbooking journey all started with my husband.
Every year, i would design a calendar with a monthly calendar grid complemented by family photos, but this year, he asked for something different. In previous years, he might like a photo on the January monthly calendar very much, but because it was so obviously a calendar, he felt rather foolish displaying it in his office past the month and would take it down to avoid being teased. After he came across some Japanese anime calendars which are almost completely posters save for a line of numbers at the bottom, he thought maybe i could do something similar?
And so i thought, and i thought, and finally something clicked in my mind. Why not get some inspiration from the scrapbooking community, and work with a scrapbooking theme? From then on, yours truly started slowly but surely falling in love with the whole scrapbooking world!
This photo was taken by my friend during our kindergarten year-end concert in October. The girl in the middle is my 3-year-old daughter, and here they are 'singing' along to the concert finale song, the classic Thank You God. The concert was themed A Grateful Heart. This is my daughter's first time on stage, and while she looks more serious here, she was absolutely beaming with joy during her dance item earlier.
