Before Your Story
A Simple Approach to Autobiographical Scrapbooking, from Birth to Adulthood

There are milestone events in life, such as marriage and motherhood, that divide us permanently into a "before" and an "after." It's easy to become so immersed in the after—the glorious here and now—that our "befores" rarely appear in our scrapbooks.

In this 6-week workshop with Jennifer Wilson of simplescrapper.com, you'll have all the guidance you need to tell your growing-up story in one gorgeous 12" x 12" pocket album. Her class combines the ease of slipping photos and journaling cards into photo sleeves with the brilliance of Stacy Julian's "Library of Memories" scrapbooking categories.

Jennifer excels at making big goals reachable and overwhelming projects finish-able, with her step-by-step processes and detailed planning worksheets. You'll complete a simple, streamlined album that will help your spouse or partner catch up on the years leading up to the moment you met. Or, it's the perfect answer to that age-old question, "Mom, what were you like when you were my age?"

Here is proof that you were once a small child, too. That you once learned to ride a bike, took swimming lessons, rolled dizzily down grassy hills, and danced at the prom.

To your spouse or partner, you can use this project to say, "Before our story, this was mine."

And the next time your child struggles to imagine a time when your life didn't revolve around hers, you can hand her this book and say: "Before your story, there was mine."
