I'm at the point in my life, where I feel like I don't have much to scrapbook anymore! I'm 20, I'm single, I don't have any kids, I don't do much with my friends! I'm just wondering if any of you awesomely creative people have any ideas??

Scrap things you dream about doing.
Do a Smash album..

How about scrapping your family? Got any old family photos?
Make an album for someone.

Grab your camera and go for a walk, a hike, a trip the to museum (that allows photography), etc. Some women at a local scrapbook store (the store is long since gone) organized a monthly photography group. Their sole purpose was find new things to photograph and scrap.

Travels, adventures, personal stuff, things that inspire you, concerts, nature, "book of me" pages.

Here's one I did for a recent NSBD challenge here, I'm quite fond of it
Fashion Challenge: I Heart Shoes By Stick


And here's one that just inspires me and makes me happy:
Calm, Montana 2008 - version 2 By Stick

This just totally reminded me of a scrapbook that I started a long time ago of my "photography" (I use that term lightly... anyone who has a camera thinks they are a photographer, including me! LOL) I guess I could add onto that!

Smash books are anything you want them to be. You can scrap photos, memorabilia, do journaling, you name it. I have one that I created out of a steno notepad. I use it to collect clippings from my scrap magazines to use for future inspiration.

card tip; it's only a small lo without a pic,,,,,substitute a pic for a focal image (stamp, bow, flowers, whatever) and finish as normal.

Do you travel? Do you go to school? Do you have friends? Do you have hobbies? Scrap anything. Go for a walk, what do you see? Do you have a pet? What do you think about when you 1st wake up in the morning? What are your last thoughts when you go to bed? What are your hopes and dreams? They may all sound like dopey things to scrap when you're 20, but believe me, when you get to be 65 you'll wish you had scrapped those memories, no matter how ordinary and insignificant they seem to you now. ~Judy

I recently got a wicked cool macro lens for my iphone, on my next trip to our Conservatory of Flowers (we're members and go a lot) I plan to take only macro photos and make an LO or three of those. Personal assignments like this can be really fun to scrap.

Holly, that's true! I guess I didn't look at it that way! But I am going to give it a try! Thank you!

Jen, those are great! I'm going to have to go look at one of those!

Judy, I suppose that's true! There are things now that I wish I would have kept memories of from when I was 'younger' haha. Thank you! Your post gave me so many ideas!
