The Importance of Scrapbooking to Me.....
It is so hard for me to express how important scrapbooking is to me. I love it! Besides it being a hobby and release of all built up emotions, I am leaving a legacy to my daughter. A legacy that is more important then any other family heirloom I can ever leave to her, it is a piece of me, it is the way I express how much I love my family, especially my daughter.
When I was 11 years old my mom died, when I was 13 my dad died.....I was left all alone. When my friends ask me why I love scrapbooking so much, I tell them, "do you know what it would of meant to me to have a scrapbook given to me by my mom before she died? It would of been amazing, I would be able to look back at the good times we had, see her hand writing, and her story of her life, and what she felt about me!!!" I want my daughter to have that! No one knows these days how long we are going to live....I want my daughter to know how much I love her, she is my life!!
That is why scrapbooking is so important to me!
