Scrapping About Holiday Stress

Holidays can be full of happiness and joy … and that’s the part we tend to share most often in our scrapbook pages.

But holiday time also tends to bring with it a fair amount of stress, whether it be for financial reasons, overloaded schedules, or as in the case of our Layout of the Week, that self-imposed pressure to meet our own expectations.

I think many of us can relate to Sarah’s journaling and her tendency to find herself lacking when comparing her own actions with those of her parents. I’d be willing to bet that her own mother felt the same way at one time. What I especially like about this layout, however, is that Sarah’s daughter is likely to feel the same way when she becomes an adult and parent … only thanks to Sarah’s scrapbooking, she’ll have this page to look back on and see that she is not alone in her feelings.

Congratulations to Sarah on having the Layout of the Week! She earns 25 bonus points in our Community Participation Program and adds a special award token to her signature.
