Pick A Photo Friday

When I was sitting down to scrap the other day, I was stumped. I have a list of stories I'd like to tell, but none of those were speaking to me. I looked over at my pile of photos and an idea struck. How about I take the pile of photos, turn them over, and pick one at random, and I'd have to scrap the one I picked? Ooooh, this could be fun, I thought. 

Here is the result.
























The photo I picked was the one in the top left. When I first saw it, I thought I don't really want to do a page about where this photo was taken or about the event, etc. Then I saw another photo of D and I in the pile and realized it would be fun to make a page with a bunch of photos of us, showing all the times we spend together. Now, that's a good story. 

















I misted the kraft tag, so it would match the patterned paper I was using. I also used the new Martha Stewart labels, which I love! 

I'll definitely be using the "pick a photo" prompt in the future. I'm very happy with the results. 

I'm also very happy that it's Friday. Scrapping and catching up on sleep is on my to do list, as well as seeing The Artist. What are your plans?

Happy weekend everyone!

Bingo! That is a great idea! I have a stack of photos that were printed over a month ago and am having a hard time finding inspiration. Now I have it thanks to you! :-)
