using souvenirs

It's fun using actual items/souvenirs from events for memory keeping. I collect stuff like business cards, flyers, ticket stubs, menus and match books from various places. Instead of agonizing over the fact that they get piled up in boxes, drawers and other random do-not-belong-there places, I've decided to put them directly onto scrapbook pages. Also I've gotten over trying to spend too much time making the pages perfect. Recording the memory and having a safe place for the photos and memorabilia have been pushed up to the top of the priority list.
In all of the layouts, I've used Dear Lizzy and washi tape. They are my new obsessions. I get my washi tape (Japanese masking tape) from 2 stores in Venice- Tortoise and Urbanic. And I just filled up my cart at Ginko Papers too!
