Scrapbooking helps us preserve our memories for future generations. Who doesn't have an interesting family photo in their collection that is unidentifiable. Is that grandma or a photo grandma's friend sent to her? Who is that sweet little baby that seems to have eyes just like your sweet little baby?
As we search thoses faces from the past wouldn't it be wonderful to have the name and date at least? How much more special and more attached we feel when we see ancestors that loved the beach as we do, or had a mountain cabin as we hope to someday.
Think how connected we feel to that treasured letter or note in the actual handwrting of a departed loved one. This is what future generations will feel as they enjoy our scrapbooks and learn about us and themselves.
