Let’s get this out of the way: I freaking love the Olympics. Growing up, opening and closing ceremonies were major family events and I still make a point to watch and enjoy the Olympics today.
It’s fun to scrapbook the Olympics for two reasons. 1. It’s fun to remember the big moments of the games and how I watched them. 2. The Olympics are a good marker of time. I remember where I was in my life for each games.
Here are some things you can do now to scrapbook the Olympics later:
Download some clipart. Any images from the games you like? Download and save them now. It was difficult finding a decent Athens 2004 logo for this page. It is much easier to find images to use in my scrapbook while the games are taking place. I found the logo above by doing some Googling.
Jot some things down. It will be hard to find out exactly what happened that mattered to you when you sit down to work on these pages later. Jot down quick things that you remember. So far on my list? Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir rocking my world, watching figure skating live, really enjoying slopestyle and that the US men swept ski slopestyle, Meryl Davis and Charlie White, being really sad about Evgeni Plushenko, and suddenly getting really into cross-country skiing.
Save some freebies. Erica has put out some great printables for the London games and has these available for the Sochi games. Save them now to use later before you forget where you saw them.
