I started a scrapbook earlier in the year where I did a two page spread for each month. One page has random pictures I took in that month and the other page had a calendar with significant events of the month marked. Then if I had other events that I scrapbooked that month they went behind the month’s pages in the book. I like the idea and I have it done through the summer.

Here’s the problem. September. Significant dates in September include mainly the day the husband moved out, the day I canceled the adoption, and other events of the same ilk. How do I scrapbook this month? (I’m a dedicated scrapbooker. While the month was going on I was thinking, “This is really going to mess up my scrapbook!”) I have never seen stuff like this in any scrapbook idea books or magazines. I’m stumped. They were bad things but they are turning out for the good.

My scrapbooks don’t tend to dwell on the emotional. I think of them as public record so I don’t record my innermost thoughts so I don’t want to do something like write an essay about it.

Any one have any ideas or ever seen a separation scrapbook page?
