The Story of the Ketchup
Hello! It’s Jill here with my very first post and layout on the Scrapbook Circle blog. While I certainly enjoy scrapbooking for the creative time, for me it’s all about the stories. And the Story Time kit was a great kit to dive into with its bright, happy colors to tell this story about how my grandma used to save ketchup packets. A little background – We used to tease grandma but she maintained this mantra, “You never know when you might need a little ketchup.” Ha! When my husband and I went to Spain in 2004, I picked her up some Spanish ketchup packets as a little joke. My grandma passed away about 4 years ago and my aunt was going through some of her things and came across the packets. She had tucked them away and kept them all this time. When I saw the packets, it made me miss my grandma even more and her sentimental heart. Now to some people this might seem like a silly little story but it’s a great memory I have of my grandma and I wanted to write about it. The printable in this month’s kit was a great spot to write a lot of journaling.
I used a sheet of paper from the 6×6 paper pad in the add-on as the base to build from the photo and then tucked in little tags, patterned paper and stickers here and there. I love the exclusive pins in the kit this month! Such a great embellishment!
There are a lot of great exclusives in the kit this month! Be sure to pick one up!
