Good day from the county!!! We've been enjoying the Balloon Festival and looking for geese. Hunting season starts on Thursday, so he needs to know where to look!!! My tip this week is about pictures and how to prepare them for scrapbooking those memories and about journaling about the pictures.

Please, please DON'T write on the back of them especially with an inkpen!!!  The best form of identifying people, place, or event is to write on a post-it note and place it on the back of a picture.  When you are preparing pictures ask yourself if someone else saw this what would they ask about it? Who is that? Where was that? Was it a party? Birthday? How old? Any special guests? What year? Whose Aunt or Uncle from what side of the family?  Any history you can tell about the time it was taken?  I have some information about the Balloon Festival and the pilots......did you know one of the pilots came here from Brazil and designed and sewed his own balloon??? Can you guess which one??

Well I hope I have given you something to think about.  Pictures tell stories, you need to enhance and let it be interesting!
