Scrapbooking a Treasured Friendship

Yesterday, the Get It Scrapped Creative Team shared layouts about friendship. We've talked before about how often we  document events. Though this is important, it's also very important to document the relationships we have with the people in our lives.

She is Like a Sister to Me by Christy Strickler Supplies| Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye. Jenni Bowlin; Cosmo Cricket; Studio Calico; Alphas: My Little Shoebox, Pink Paislee; Badge: Jenni Bowlin; Stickers: Stickopotamus; Tape: My Mind’s Eye; Flowers: Sassafrass; Button: Basic Grey

This photo was snapped while my best friend and her family visited us on their vacation. While the overall event was the vacation itself, I was able to take this photo out of that context and document my relationship with my best friend.

It's not necessary to stage a photograph to document a friendship. Look for photos that you can use out of their normal event context. You can always scrapbook a photo more than once. Use it with the event, then reprint it to document another perspective. While it's important to document your relationships with others, don't forget your family members. Make sure you include the relationships your spouse and children have with their friends and loved ones as well.
