I had so much fun playing with the digital Lens kit from this month's Ali Edwards Story Kit release. I have a long, long list of stories I want to tell, but I decided to mix it up this time and start very literally, and then work into a more metaphorical view of the theme.
I'm Mr. Magoo blind, so glasses or contact are an absolute must for me, and with months and months of being out of contacts and putting up my appointment for a new prescription, this prompt came at just the right time.
I started out with a favorite quote from Yeats, and then decided on a two page spread when my journaling, as is usual, got a little lengthy. It turned out to be just perfect to have two pages, because collecting some of my favorite pairs of glasses and capturing them in one spot was a fun way to make sure I get them in the books since I am not always wearing them when I add a photo of myself. This is what I love about really simple hybrid design when scrapbooking - all it took was adding Ali's simple digital stamp, and then a few chipboard stars to give the pages more personality without taking away from the story.
Next up will be recording the story of seeing our home we're moving out of after a number of years through two lenses - one full of our belongings, and one empty. I can't wait to document this, and I'm wishing I had this for previous homes.
There's still time to pick up this digital kit if you love it - trust me, it won't leave you short of stories to tell.
