This week, I’m exploring the role of story in scrapbooking as I get ready to launch October’s Layout a Day challenge. Our theme for the month-long challenge is “Story,” and we’ll be talking about how to capture the stories we want to on our scrapbook pages. If you haven’t already signed up, don’t delay! It will be a life-changing event.
“Once upon a time…”
This phrase also holds keys for our scrapbooking. Let’s take a look a little more closely:
UPON A TIME: According to Wiktionary, “Upon” means “Incidental to a specified point in time or order of action.” In other words, this story takes place at this point in time. Not later, not early, not always, but NOW.
So what does this little phrase tell us? Just this: That the most famous stories of all time were written by one person, about one person’s life, at one particular time in history.
Sounds a lot like scrapbooking, doesn’t it?
