I have been scrapbooking for almost 15 years and have documented close to 20 years of memories and stories of our lives. My scrapbooking has evolved, in some ways, dramatically over the years. Once I scrapbooked traditionally. Hands to paper and adhesive, photos printed and adhered to photo mats, embellishments covering the pages with depth and taking up space. I've scrapped one photo per page and easier, used clean lines and simple design.
And I've found my style over the years and I've moved from traditional scrapbooking to digital scrapbooking. And the whole time I've documented our lives. This past year I went far beyond what I'd ever imagine doing: documenting our lives every week of the year. And I'm continuing the practice this year in 2014.
I'm so thankful for this opportunity, for the focus and motivation to record memories. I scrapbook mostly for me, but I'd like to think my family appreciates it too.
