Scrapbooking the Everyday

Today, the post went up over at the Get It Scrapped Blog about Scrapbooking your chores. The assignment had me thinking more about scrapbooking more everyday events. It just so happened that today's LOAD213 prompt also played into this theme. It was all about scrapbooking relationships.Often, the relationship we have with others impacts the everyday activities that we do.

This is the layout I created for Get It Scrapped. Not only does it document part of my daily chores. It also documents the relationship I have with my cats.I loathe household chores and they help me make things a bit more bearable.

Part of my everyday activities involve being in my scrap space creating. It's not uncommon for my cats to be present. JuJu Bee likes to help me get supplies out while I work. She opens and shuts the drawers. Sometimes, she even moves stuff around from drawer to drawer. I find it quite amusing and call her Lil Miss Helpful.

I invite you to dig a little deeper into your family relationships. Everyday events like homework, cooking and cleaning are all effected by our family's personalities. You can capture this story using everyday photos for a more complete picture of your family dynamics.
