I decided my reasons for scrapbooking were:
- For Love
- To Preserve History
- To Capture Moments for the Future
- To be part of a Community (inc. Blog Love)
- To be Creative (inc. Making Photos look Magical)
- For Pretty Papers (and a good Excuse to buy them!)
Here's the book:
(I was inspired to put a key on the front after reading a Copy+Paste blog post here, I have been working on a key necklace too which I shall post when finished!)
There are not enough words to say how much I love my family and my friends.
Some photos make my heart ache with it, and taking the time and care to scrapbook these helps me express how much I love you.
These photos are of my granny and grandad and my nanny and grampa, getting into taxis on their wedding days.
I love that scrapbooking has inspired me to copy their old photos and ask them about their experiences - I don't want their memories to be lost. I can't believe I might not have thought to get these, if it wasn't for my hobby. xxx
Without scrapbooking people may forget that we're all laughing because a donkey has just walked past the window!
Journalling (on little heart) reads:
SJ's blog taught me how to make this (arrow to button necklace pic - see my necklace blog post here)
Journalling (inside envelope) reads:
Even though I don't have many direct conversations with other scrapbookers I still feel part of a community, reading blogs helps me to learn and lets me know others share my passion!
SJ's blog also taught me how to make the flower above, see her post here.
I'm incredibly tired now so I'll leave it at that! Hope you like my book, if you like it enough to vote for it, there will be a chance to on Shimelle's blog http://www.shimelle.com/.
