documenting the past

Hey there! I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day. My sweet baby girl made me the best gift ever....a scrapbook layout!
She made this in her Smash book....I love it! She is so precious.

This week's ScrapGals Podcast is all about "Documenting the Past."
I was inspired to do this show topic after seeing the work of Mary Ann Jenkins.
She is a scrapper I recently discovered who does an incredible job working with vintage photos. (Check her blog out here!)
In this episode, we talk a lot about her process and our own challenges. I hope you enjoy it, I just listened to it twice and enjoyed it both times!

As always, you can find us on iTunes or here on Podomatic or listen here on my blog with this player...



I thought I'd dig up some of my layouts using vintage photos and I discovered I've only ever made one!
I don't know if I've ever even shared this because I found out after making this that I have the ages wrong.
I need to fix that and put it up in my TwoPeas Gallery. I think I'll redo that entire title block. I still like the rest although I made this years ago.

Obviously I need inspiration to get going on my stack of old photos. That's why I was so excited about this show and Mary Ann's work.
I feel very motivated now (after listening to it twice) to dig in and get going.

So here's to documenting the past. I hope you enjoy this week's show!

Awww...how sweet of your daughter! I love to mix it up, and every once in a while take out a really old photo to scrap. It's a whole other process!

What a sweet layout by your daughter! Your podcast this week was one of my favorites. Oh, my goodness, I am glad to know of Mary Ann Jenkins - her layouts are wonderful. She is inspiring but I'm not sure I'd have found her if not for your podcast. So thank you and Tiffany!

P.S. I worked on my comment problem a long time today. Looks like I got it resolved. :-)
