2015 Week 19: THE Week

Week 19 might have just been one of the most exciting weeks of 2015 so far. We've anxiously waited since last November, when we decided to go the cochlear implant route with Matthew, for his activation day. That came this past week. While activation day might have been a little confusing for him (you can view it on the QR code), he has made HUGE strides this past week with it. It's amazing. I feel like I'm watching a miracle unfold right in front of my eyes. God is good. I'll be sharing more, I'm sure, with my weekly pages and blog posts on how things are going if you are interested.

Not only did Matthew have his CI activation, but we also watched the crew pour the foundation for our new house, there was a piano recital and the hubby and I got to go to a concert ALL BY OURSELVES! It was definitely memorable week.

Take a closer look if you want to.

Don' Forget These 3 Things {FREEBIE to Help YOU!}


I'm no expert, but these are three things you probably will regret not including on your digital scrapbook page: date, people and place. And obviously pictures. Unless, of course, you're going for a photo-less page, and then that's just a whole new ball game. But we aren't talking about a ball game here, so let's get back to this list.

Always stick the date on there. Just type it up in the corner, doodle it around a picture, add it in with the journaling. Just somewhere. If you don't you'll be guessing what month or year that piano recital was. Believe me, I know!

Don't forget the names of people (I'm bad about this one).  You might know the person's name, but maybe your kids will want to know who it is, and you might not be around to tell them. Maybe you are scrapping their childhood friends or teachers, and you want them to remember those names through the years.

You probably also want to include the place. Where were you? Was it a special place, a favorite park, a friend's house? You'll especially want to include the specific place if you are on a road trip or vacation. It's amazing how many names of people and places you can forget over the years...or is that just me?

Here are a few freebies to help you make sure you can easily add the date, people and place to your page. Download and enjoy!
