I have really neglected scrapbooking this Summer. Well, really for a year, since I started the social work program. But this Summer I thought I would spend tons of time on it, but instead chose to spend all of my free time on photography. But thanks to my friend Melanie (who had me over for scrapbooking on Friday night), I did get a few layouts done the other night. I am still finishing up one of them, but here are a couple.
(My blog is cutting the side of my page off, but you get the idea.)
Pictures look familiar? They haven't even been pushed to the second page of my blog yet. That is how recent this event occurred. That being said, I am not one to scrapbook chronologically as life happens. I am more of a "I think I feel like recording our first year of marriage four years after the fact" kind of a person.
I just scrapbook some things, and let other things be recorded on my blog or put the remaining photos in an album. I don't stress myself out about getting every single event creatively recorded in an album (obviously). I also scrapbook in varying sizes, as you can see. I am doing this with my albums. I love the different sizes mixed together. You can also read more about this here.

We had a really fun weekend. Saturday morning we did a photo shoot and then ran a bunch of errands (and I got supplies for my OPAM this month. Yay!) Then that night we went to the Puyallup Fair. No, we didn't take that photo above. It was difficult not to take our camera, but sometimes you just need to enjoy the moment rather than capturing every little thing, you know? So we did. We went with our friends Adam and Dottie. It was a great time. I've never experienced a fair anything like this one. Apparently it's the 6th largest in the country. Pretty impressive. I also must note that W was very happy to enjoy his much-anticipated Krusty Pups, which he has been talking about since last year. We even got some Christmas shopping done.
Then yesterday after church we drove to Portland to have dinner with Britney and Ron (W's sister). They made some really good Salmon. It was fun. And that was our fabulous weekend.
