Treasured Scrapbooking

Monthly Kits and Much More

Why do we scrap? Well i suppose everyone does it for different reasons…because we love to craft in some form…because we love to create…because we love to express ourselves. I think those cover some of the surface reason as to why we spend hours cutting and pasting and glittering and “stickering”…For me though it’s about more than that. It’s about holding onto all those things throughout the day that slip through our fingers…and as they do we say “I never want to forget this.” I know that with children (and four of them I might add) those precious moments happen more times a day than I can count…but if I can occasionally get one of them on the page it feels like such an accomplishment. Scrapbooking is a way of sharing all the things that I treasure and consider important with the rest of the world. I may not be able to write a book about all the things I consider life to be about, but I can scrap a book filled with love, emotion and passion to share with generations. This brings me to my next point… I believe that so many of us love to scrap because…now this may sound kind of crazy at first…but I believe that scrapbooking is like a fountain of youth. On our pages…when we preserve all of those precious memories and feelings…we are saving a huge piece of ourselves. In essence we are preserving who we are to ourselves and to those around us on this 12 x 12 piece of paper. And guess what? Long after we are gone…there is a record of us. A record of what we believe in…who we love…who we are and who we will always be. And as we are looking back on that memory, that page that we have created…we can be there again…if only for a moment.
Here are a few of those precious memories that I would like to share with you.

Sometimes if we remind ourselves why we love this hobby so much…we are filled with inspiration. So I hope you have a wonderfully creative day :)
