My Learn Something New mini-album is complete. And I love it! :)
I created an introduction page on the inside of the front cover.
And the last few lessons of the month.
Day 26 - Today I learnt that if I don't write down the wonderfully insightful lessons I learn each day I forget them.
This is probably my least favourite page of the album - it is just so busy. If I hadn't already used the other side of this page I probably would have started again. But I had, so I didn't. Done and moving on.
Day 27 - Today I learnt steps are a whole lot easier with an obliging groomsman to hold onto.

Day 28 - Today I learnt that I am physically incapable of making it home without smearing, smudging or generally mooshing my manicure.
Journaling reads: Also considered as lessons for today: When it rains there is no point rushing for a train as it's guaranteed to be running late. Or/ When the floor is slippery people waddle like ducks.
Journaling: Thank you! Love you Mum!
The evening of the 29th I rang up my parents and Mum asked if I'd noticed anything different - if I had seen her suprise. I had no idea what she was talking about.
That afternoon Mum been dropping something off at my place so had bought with her some cleaning supplies and boiling water in a thermos. On hands and knees she had scrubbed down the steps, drying them off with a towel as she went so no one slipped. They had been bugging her so she had done something about it.
I had actually noticed the smell of cleaning products when I had walking in the door but hadn't thought anything of it. Don't know why I didn't realise that Mum would be the source! :)
Day 30 - Today I learnt that if you are happy, rain on your wedding day doesn't bother you one little bit.
This is the only lesson that you need to turn the page to complete. As the last lesson in the album, from the biggest event of the month, I like that. I think it adds a sense of significance.
Inside the back cover is a closing comment and a favourite photo of the month.
There always are new lessons waiting to be learnt. Enjoy them.
And the back cover.
This is a bright, colourful, random and fat mini-album. So glad I did it. (And thanks to Shimelle, I can complete the Learn Something New class every year if I choose, at no more cost. A great set-up for alumni!)
I think it is a lot easier to experiment and play if you aren't using your 'serious' memories and photos. A class like this can be a great way to have fun with scrapbooking. :)
