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!!
