Hello! I hope you all had an absolutely fantastic Thanksgiving yesterday. While we're all coming down from our turkey and sugar high, I thought I would share a bit of holiday help. I come from a family full of amazing cooks and we always take pictures of the food before we eat it at holiday gatherings. I already scrapped most of those photos from last year, but I had a leftover photo of my grandfather in the kitchen. I decided that I really wanted to use it to tell a story about his excellent cooking.
When I'm struggling to scrapbook traditional holiday photos, I often try to come up with a different angle for my journaling. Instead of journaling about my grandfather taking the turkey out for Thanksgiving, I brought up his talent as a cook and the fact that he makes an amazing gumbo. Don't feel limited to one story line. Everyone can tell by the date and the turkey in the photo that it's Thanksgiving. The more detailed journaling helps me remember a fact about my grandpa that I don't ever want to forget.
