I am a diehard paper scrapbooker — and in the long term, I don’t see that permanently changing. However, at the moment, I am messing around with digital scrapbooking for a couple of important reasons. 1) I want to see if I can speed up my crafting process — in particular, I’m hoping to get faster on the journaling; and 2) Most of my paper craft supplies are packed up in boxes for moving.

Here you can see one of my first efforts at digital scrapbooking.

I have a massive backlog of photos that I want to display in albums. Realistically speaking, I will probably have to just put most of them in pocket pages and call it a day; there are so many pics that it would probably take the rest of my life for me to make scrapbooking layouts about all of them (even if I were to do it all digitally).

But there are a few pictures that stand out as being ones I really want to feature in layouts — and this is one of them.

When I used to live in California, one of my favorite things to do was walking on the sand between Santa Monica and Venice Beach. In hindsight, it sort of horrifies me to remember how I used to grab a slice of pizza in Venice or a container of (pseudo) Chinese food at the mall in Santa Monica. But that was my life then. Since then, everything has changed dramatically.

A few years ago, my husband Mike and I went back to California to visit family and friends. We spent a day hanging out in Marina Del Rey with some friends we met when we were living aboard a sailboat and cruising around Catalina Island.

It was a quick walk from their place to Venice Beach Pier. On the day we visited, the weather was gray and overcast — which was kind of a bummer. But I still enjoyed the walk down “Memory Lane”.

Here you can see the view from Venice Beach Pier facing the shoreline.

I’m mostly content to be a homebody, but looking at my old pics sort of stirs up the dormant wanderlust in my soul…
