This is why I scrapbook

Shimelle has a really interesting video on the reasons why she scrapbooks here I thought I would share with you some of the reasons why I scrapbook.

First I scrapbook because its fun, if I didn't enjoy it I would stop. I also enjoy being part of several on-line scrapping communities and have made friends through scrapbooking.

I scrapbook mainly for myself, I don't necessarily think about what will happen to my scrapbooks when I am no longer here - that's for the boys to decide!!! I have made a couple of special mini-books for them for special events - like one for John's years at primary school and for his trip to London.

I think scrapbooking is a good way to tell stories and is an interesting way to keep photos, although I do still keep other photos in a traditional photo album.

I find it fun to experiment a bit with all the different types of pretty paper and paint etc that you can get nowadays - although am definately trying to use up my existing stash before adding to it.

I have recently tried to incorporate my faith into my scrapping.

If you are a scrapbooker why do you scrapbook?

It's Friday today, so I though I had better bake some cakes for the weekend. I made these and they taste yummy!!

Thankfully all the snow from yesterday has now gone - we are just back to rain!!

Great answer, Fiona :-) My own answer is on my blog - it's clearly got a lot of us thinking!

Those cakes look yummy, by the way x

I love to scrapbook because my family really takes time to look at the photos we take instead of leaving them on a digital camera to be deleted with the memory is full or just flipping through pics quickly and then putting them back into the processing envelope never to be seen again. Scrapbooking also opens up conversations with those looking through the books and records for future generations the stories of the family -- and family is so very important! I'd love to hear / see some of the ideas you have for incorporating faith / scripture into your pages! BTW, the cakes DO look delicious!
