Stalled Project Going to Yellowstone (Marcia)


Stalled Project  Going to Yellowstone (Marcia)

This layout, “Going to Yellowstone,” will be added to a scrapbook album about a vacation to Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah that my husband and I took in October 2012 in conjunction with our son’s wedding.
 
Although I had completed several pages for this album, I still have a lot of photos and several stories that I never scrapbooked. I had printed most of the photos and put them in pocket pages until I could scrapbook some of them, but I just never got back to it as other projects got in the way.
 
To re-engage with this project, I browsed through my album and jotted down the stories that were missing. That way when I had time to scrapbook I already had the stories in mind. One of the things that made it easier to remember some of the timing and stories was that I’d actually done a simple mini-album during the vacation, plus I had put a group of supplies for the album into a basic kit so that gave me a starting point for my pages.
 
For others in this situation, I would recommend looking at the unfinished project, deciding what stories still need to be told, and choosing supplies that are similar in color and/or feel to those parts of the project already completed. Then just start!
