I Love Scrapbooking
I love to create. I love my family. I love making memories and then re-living them. I also love photography. What better way to do all the things I love? Scrapbooking helps me to do all of these things.
Scrapbooking has helped me to be more creative in so many things. I enjoy decorating more. I make my own cards now (with my scrapbooking supplies, of course) which people love since they seem to mean so much more than a store-bought card. I even have influenced my four year old daughter to make crafty things. She especially loves to make cards and scrapbook pages of her own.
Because my family is so important to me, I want them to remember the fun times we have and be able to re-live them as I create scrapbook pages and again as often as we look through our albums. We do so many fun things as a family that I don't want to forget and I don't want my children to forget. I also love to look back at my pages and recount the everyday things that make life special.
Photography has been a hobby of mine for a long time. When I discovered creative scrapbooking, it just made sense to have a place to put all of those pictures together. I enjoy looking at photo albums so much more when they are in a scrapbook with journalling and decoration.
I didn't plan on this hobby taking over my life, it just happened. Everything just fits together so well! I can see myself scrapbooking for as long as I have pictures of those I love.
