Memory lane visits through scrapbooking!

…submitted by: Dawn in Logan, UT

Ever think about how you have such great photos of your precious children, but now – would they just give you a free moment to do something with those photos?!? I got into scrapbooking when my daughter was just a newborn. Despite the time-thief a baby can be, it was easier to get photos into albums when she hadn’t started crawling! I loved doing things the old fashioned way (this was 2000) with colored papers, stickers, and photos. I was fortunate that someone introduced me to the home based business of Creative Memories, and I soon got lots of supplies and ideas from my Creative Memories consultant. Soon after, my daughter was crawling, and I had my hands full only taking photos and just keeping her out of trouble! My scrapbooking time became limited to when I could leave the house to participate in scrapbooking crops, or when she was asleep (though I never trusted her that I’d leave out my supplies!)

Over the past eight years, the scrapbooking industry has boomed and changed. Now one can do digital scrapbooking pages, send them to a local printer and slip the colored printed pages into an album, or even pay a company to print out an entire album for you. There is software (both free and for sale) from various companies to aid in the process of digital scrapbooking…you don’t have to use scissors, just a mouse! I haven’t totally converted to this new age of scrapbooking, as I still have a closet full of scrapbooking paper, stickers, pages, and tons of photos!

My scrapbooking time is still limited, but at least (most of the time) photos don’t go bad! And whenever I finally get photos into albums, my family loves them!
