It was a good day to buy what I needed. Since medication affects my mother's cognition, I thought it would be a good idea to buy the light green book that reads "Family" all over it. That would help her remember what it was. A few weeks ago when I looked they were in all the stores. For one reason or other I went to three craft stores tonight and there was only one single book left, and of course I bought it, with a coupon.
In the family name section, I'll put in "[Mother's Name]"s Ancestors." It's a very unusual person who is only the product of one family.
Inside this is a family tree silhouette you're supposed to put names and photos on. It doesn't work. I guess no one in the company realized that you go from 2 ancestors on a side to 4 to 8. The numbers of branches don't agree, so I'll just ignore it. The page is also slightly creased. It was the same case with the one before that I almost bought. I hope it'll iron out.
No blah backgrounds for me. Pads of paper were on sale, so I found what I thought would be a nice assortment. I plan to make the backgrounds for each basic family a different color. I chose Recollections' Fashionably Chic. The patterns have a nice vintage feel and are moderate in design.
I've liked K & Company's SW Botanical and finally bought a pad. It doesn't have any pink in it, so I might have to look for another by the company.
I don't remember seeing Spring Blossom, but isn't it pretty? Mom and I both like daisies and bumble bees.
This one might work, too:
I'm entering scrapbooking without a lot of money to spend on it. I will have to do more with less, but that's my style anyway in most things that I do. I want to use the more interesting designs to accent the plainer backgrounds. I hope it will work.
