Best Day Ever?

People scrapbook because they want to remember the good times. I get that. It’s one of the reasons I scrapbook. But sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all the happy-happy, fun-fun, this-is-perfect products out there. How many best days ever can we have? By definition: one. Yet there are dozens of best-day-ever embellishments that just sit in my pile of products, going unused.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not calling for a ban on the happy stuff. But there’s an awful lot of life that happens in between the fun, and I want to document that too. Here’s a page I did last year. You can check it out in my Scrapping the Spectrum series.

Depression Lies

There are some products out there for this–and I buy them pretty much every chance I get–but it would be nice if there were even more. Not just for bad days, but for average days. Boring days. Angry days. They are all part of life.

So here’s my small plea to manufacturers: let’s have more variety in phrasing and tone. If you want to keep it happy, at least come up with some new phrases.

  1. I agree. We need new phrases and some in varying tones. Your pages is beautiful.
