Scrapbooking can be fun.
I know; what a concept, right?
Often, scrappers get so caught up in creating elaborate page designs filled with expensive embellishments and newfangled techniques that they lose sight of the big picture.
The art of crafting memory albums shouldn’t be a chore or an exercise in frustration; rather, piecing together pages featuring fabulous photos and heartfelt mementos should be fun.
One of the ways you can infuse a little laughter into your scrapbook layouts is to look for humorous additions, such as jokes or riddles. For example, if you are creating a lively kids-themed page design, consider adding these zingers from GigglePoetry.com:
What would you call a coop where ducks are kept?
A quack shack
What would you call a snack thief?
A Frito bandito
What would you call a wealthy tattletale?
A rich snitch
What would you call the lid on a popcorn maker?
A popper stopper
What would you call a talkative taxi driver?
A gabby cabby
Of course, kids-themed layouts aren’t the only places you can add a touch of humor. My mom attached this funny poem to a layout celebrating my aunt’s 50th birthday:
Turning 50 Is Not So Bad
Turning 50 is kind of nifty
When you consider the alternative.
You’re not pushing daisies or feeding the worms,
You still have a lot of life left to live.
So make the most of your golden years,
Take time to see the sights and travel.
Better to roll down the highway now,
While you’re above, not beneath, the gravel.
