The Hairdo Walk of Shame

Whenever I go on a scrapbooking retreat, I know it is inevitable that I’ll be taking a walk down Memory Lane. So I was prepared this past Saturday to feel a little nostalgic when I met up with my friends for a 12-hour scrapbooking crop to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. I had my laptop computer and the Creative Memories Memory Manager and Storybook Creator programs were loaded on it along with the photos that I planned to work with. This time, I thought I’d work on a fun little project that I was going to entitle “Dee’s Hairdos Over the Years.”

We often get so wrapped up in scrapbooking the events in our lives that we forget there are other, fun details we can highlight. Why not dedicate some pages to some of your “fashion faux pas” over the years? Or how about all those great hairdos you and your parents fought over growing up? In my case, as I was working on my heritage album and then my children’s albums, I couldn’t help but chuckle over some of the atrocious hairdos I had worn over the years. I thought a “hairdo walk of shame” would be just the thing to work on during a fun-filled Saturday with my friends.

It turned out that I wasn’t the only one taking that style-challenged walk. My friend, Linda, who was working next to me on her own heritage album, kept finding photos of herself in hairstyles that were pretty darn funny. It seems that I wasn’t the only one whose mother insisted on cutting her bangs or who was dragged into the local beauty shop for a perm regularly. Linda, our friend, Jamie, and I had more fun laughing over those photos. I can’t say that we got a heck of a lot accomplished but we DID give our stomach muscles a good workout with all that laughter. Since you couldn’t be there to enjoy the fun with us, I thought I’d bring a little of the fun to you.
