Saturday Simple Scrapbook Ideas is a new weekly feature sharing a layout and scrapbooking page and layout ideas.
Okay, I could post something mushy about being married to this man for 16 years yesterday, but I’ll just post a mushy layout from back in 2010 instead.
Journaling Reads: It really wasn’t that different than most months. I was paying bills. Something I usually don’t do when you are around because you get difficult to be around. But I figured you already knew this month, with all the truck repairs, was going to be really bad and I wanted to get it over with. So, I spent some time Sunday afternoon paying bills. When I was done, I reported as much and the sorry state of affairs. You said something I’ve never heard from you before. “Thank you for doing it”.- It was the sweetest thing you could have said. You even noted it was a good thing you don’t pay the bills. It was a moment I realized how much our marriage has grown.

Simple Scrapbook Ideas:
- Use portraits when you don’t have pictures from the particular moment to scrapbook. Portraits rarely tell much of a story on their own yet may be some of our favorite pictures. Pairing them with a story that you don’t have pictures for is a great way to include them in your scrapbook pages.
- Red, Black and Cream make for a romantic color combination and I often use these colors in layouts conveying the love between Cody and I.
- Take a new spin on some not so great memories. I can tell you that there are some not so fun money discussions between Cody and I. If there’s one thing we’ve ever fought about it, that’s the one. Thankfully, it’s not something we fight about often. You can’t fight about it much when you ain’t got any of it.
- If I could change something about this layout, it would be the journaling font. It’s hard to read. I wouldn’t just it today- As much as I love fonts as much as any other scrapbooker, readability is king.
- And most of all- no moment is too small to scrapbook.
