A couple of weeks ago, I hung out with the Scrapaholix girls to get a little scrapbooking done, (jumpstart to a scrapbook retreat). I showed up only with photos (a bunch of random photos from my iPhone) in hand and walked away with three completed pages using Chela's "scraps" (literally scraps from her throw away pile) and I borrowed some rubber stamps from Monique and journaled with a black pen.
See it doesn't take much to be a scrapbooker...photos+journaling=preserved memories
Note: Just use random photos from your phone, there are no rules to scrapbooking, your work does not have to be chronological or photos from the same event to have a home on a page. The journaling ties the photos together.
