    Collect Memories

    I scrapbook. I have been scrapbooking little by little for a few years, but haven't finished a whole scrapbook yet. I really enjoy doing it though, and for me, I have the time, but not the patience to do it for hours, so I do a little at a time :) I think it's a great way to put...

    It's So Addictive!

    I started scrapbooking as a way to display all the photos I have.  I love taking pictures of the kids and I want them to remember all these things they've done so they can pass it on to their own children.  It's really gotten me into the whole family story and heritage...

    I Discovered Digital Scrapbooking
