Happy Saturday friends!
My good friend, Kerri Bradford, is offering up a spot in her class, The History Project. I have followed along at a distance while Kerri taught this class the past couple of years and I kept thinking, I'll do it next year. Well, friends, it's next year. I had stepped back quite a bit from scrapbooking the last year or so (due to the ebb and flow of creativity and I wasn't feeling it, ya know what I mean?) and I've been itching to "scrapbook" again and I think this project is just the thing. Not only will it allow me to record those bits and pieces of me but I'm thinking it will inspire creativity too. I'm really excited to get started. I'll be sharing bits of my pages/album along the way and would love to see yours as well!
Please note this isn't a "scrapbook" class. This is a memory keeping project. I'll just be showcasing mine in a scrapbook format because that's what I'm comfortable with (and I like the "foo-foo").... you do not need to be a scrapbooker to enjoy this class!
Let's make 2015 the year we record OUR STORY, okay?!
Nobody knows you better than you.
If you don't write your story, who will?
Preserve your personal childhood history in this unique 12-week class with Kerri Bradford. Go beyond the ordinary questions about your youth, dig into some really fun memories, and write them on paper for your family. This class isn’t about scrapbooking, it’s about writing the memories and getting them into a journal. Photos and ‘foo foo’ are optional.
Class starts February 9. Fun stuff going in the classroom now to get you ready.
Cost is $45, but you can save $5 if purchased by January 24.
(This is the same class as taught the past two years.)

I'm going to be kicking it "old school" with my The History Project album. When I started scrapbooking back in 1998 I created 8 1/2" x 11" pages. I've decided that's what size I'm using for my pages in this class. I like that size. It will be perfect if I have photos. It will be perfect if I don't. Plenty of room for all that "foo-foo" that I like to add to my pages but not too big that I feel like I'll never fill all the space. I'm pretty excited about this project. Here's what I've gathered up to use so far. I'll be adding to my list we get closer to the start of class (February 9th).
I'm using the aqua/gold polka dot album linked below, however, I'm not sure it's still available. I'm linking up some similar albums in case you're looking for one to use for this project.

Let's record our history together. If we don't, no one else will!
