Document It: Bad Days

Here at Creations Galore, we're passionate about memory keeping. That means the good, the bad, and even the ugly. Our lives are composed of highs and lows. In our personal experience, we've grown more during those low periods of time. They have help shape us; therefore, we believe they sometimes need to be included in our albums. 

Here are three examples of how our Creative Genius, Nicole, documented a few of those days...

Flooding, broken shoes, a broken handbag, a smashed computer screen, a soaked phone. If anything, this reminded me that I'm human and every moment isn't always a pretty picture. Life is real. It comes with days you wish you could start over. But you make a cup of coffee and a breakfast sandwich, and get over it. 

People, people, people. Dealing with death and helping a loved one cope is hard. How do you scrapbook THAT?! I added a quick snapshot from an important dinner, some hidden journaling, and a quote that perfectly described the moment. That sentiment from Elise Blaha Cripe explains that overwhelming feeling while still expressing an important message: We press on.

Do you remember when that happened?! Oh man, that was rough. If Aaron Rodgers participated in Project Life, it would look just like this. His bad day was my bad day. In our house, we live and breath football. Sundays are devoted to naps, food, and Lambeau Field. Naturally, the high and lows of our passion end up documented.

Now it's your turn. Don't always pass up the less than perfect moments in your life. Use scrapbooking as a way to not only preserve memories, but to help heal and vent.
