Project - Winter Ball
by Jill Sprott
Scrapping the life of a teenager can be a Herculean task. It's not that today's teenagers are photo shy. No, not at all – they take tons of photos, actually, and share them with all five hundred of their Facebook friends, but they usually trade the smile for a scowl when Mom the Scrapbooker is behind the camera. When it comes to special events like dances, however, there is an actual federal mandate (I'm pretty sure) that requires teenagers to set aside at least fifteen minutes prior to the said event to pose for a seemingly endless series of photos taken by overeager parents. This is when it helps to have Mom the Scrapbooker behind the camera, because she will remember to focus on the details, and she will treasure these detail shots more than any awkwardly posed photograph. This layout's photos capture one of those details – the moment my daughter's Winter Ball date presented her with a wrist corsage, which was a total surprise to her.
The pink roses and green leaves in the corsage became the starting point for the layout’s color scheme, and I incorporated a little bit of blue for a wintery feel. I have been waiting to use the large word “DATE” from one of the Pebbles Seen & Noted journaling cards for some time, and it found a perfect home on this layout, since it now has a double meaning. I was especially excited about using the KI Memories Tick Tock clock stamps, which record the hours of the evening, from start to finish. Alongside the clocks, I threaded a series of buttons and accents with a length of cord, and I added a vertical strip of white glitter tape, which enhances the wintery feel of the page.
Below the photos, I added my journaling by hand (something I’m going to try to do more often in the coming year), but behind the photos at the top right, I tucked a few journaling cards/tags into a pocket containing my daughter’s top five memories of the evening, in her words (and her grammar and punctuation, ahem).
All in all, this page is my attempt to capture the spirit of the moment and of the season. I hope my daughter will look back on it someday and realize how awesome it is be the child of Mom the Scrapbooker.
