The Paper Bakery | Memory Keeping

One of the fun things about memory keeping is exactly that, keeping the memories. I printed these photos just a few days after an afternoon at Disneyland, about 6 years ago. I put them and the firefighter sticker in a safe place and knew they would some day find their way to a scrapbook layout. Today was that day!
Sure, I've scrapped more recent photos in those 6 years, heck, a layout I made yesterday had photos from the weekend ;) but I love that I still had the sticker and was able to use it with the photos all these years later.
I obviously don't scrap in chronological order, some days I work with photos from my childhood, or like the layout from yesterday, photos taken the same week, but I'm still preserving and keeping the memories.
I used "Holiday Charm", the  November kit from the Paper Bakery to make the layout. Yes, it's a Holiday/Christmas kit, but it worked perfectly for a non-holiday layout!!  The right now, today and arrow chipboard pieces are from last months kit, but I always keep all my left over bits and pieces, so those were great to add as embellishments.
As always, thanks for stopping by!

Love how you used the Christmas papers for an everyday page Mary Ann! And the mix of polka dots is so fun!

I do the same too, I have tons of photos printed and waiting to be scrapped. All because of the memories :) (but there are more photos - not printed - on my laptop :) ). LOVE your page!!
