Flip through Gabe’s first scrapbook with me!

So far, I have only shared digital scrapbook layouts that I have created for Gabe over the years — but I scrapbooked most of his youngest years in paper form. These layouts are housed in bulky albums with individual pages covered with page protectors. This format makes them a bit of a pain to share online the way I have been sharing the digital albums.

Sure, I could take out each page, scan it or photograph it, bring it into Photoshop to edit and straighten, then post individually…but honestly, that’s a heck of a lot of work! So instead, I decided to record myself flipping through the albums, talking a bit about the layouts, photos or scrapbooking process along the way.

The first video is now available below! Mind you, this is the first time I have recorded a flip-through, and I have learned a few lessons as I sat down at the computer tonight to prep the video for posting. Like I did, you’ll notice some imperfections (weird lighting, shadows, glares at times, “um”s, weird choices of words), but I’m asking you to extend a little grace to me and don’t point those out in the comments section. With no thanks to the coronavirus-inflicted shut-down, my emotional state is a little fragile lately, and — I’m not going to lie — I might get a little abnormally discouraged if I read negative comments! So just know that I’m aware of them, and I’ll work on improving things before my next go-round.

Without further ado, enjoy!
