Scrapbooking Pairs: Before and After

I've been doing a lot of scrapbooking lately, and one of my secrets to getting so much done is that I have a big bin of blank layouts/backgrounds. When I'm in a scrapbooking binge, I turn to these first to see if they work with any of my photos. It's a way of scrapbooking that works for me, although people are often dubious about how it works. So, for this week's photography pairs meme, hosted by Helena, I thought I'd show you the before and after.
Here's the blank layout:
And here's the layout filled with photographs from the kids' first day of school in 2011:

Susanne said...

Nice, I think I might have to revisit Shimelle's starting points too - a head start is always a good thing. Glad to see you are getting so much done.

Such a great idea. If I could only get myself to actually scrapbook.

What a great idea for speedy scrapping, I like it.

Fun to see the difference - that blue all but disappears.

Great idea for pairs! I have a friend who has several albums of blank layouts like these & she adds photos when she gets inspired. It works great for her, but I don't think I'd enjoy it as much. However, that's what I love about this hobby - there are so many ways to scrapbook and preserve memories that everyone can find a way that works for them.
