Multi-media elements

Scrapbooking is all about the photos and telling a story through journalling.  I love that.  But other multi-medial elements can be incorporated to enhance the story-telling.

In the first layout 'Blowing Bubbles', I used an audio recording of my daughter as a baby, blowing raspberries.  It brings a fun interactive component to the layout plus it is a memorable moment that is preserved. 

I picked up the flat sound card from craft store Spotlight, the batteries last for years and its re-recordable.  I used a Making Memories Page Pebble over the top of the play button with the word 'Push' to start the audio recording.

In the next layout 'Look at me!', I had videoed my daughters' first steps as well as taken photo's. The DVD sits in a pocket and can be easily removed for viewing.  The DVD is not just memrobilia but also is functional as an embellishment and title.
