Where are your pictures? You know the ones...the envelopes of school portrait packages you ordered, looked at, then set aside; the umpteen rolls of film you had developed at Wal-Mart that you've been meaning to sort through; the digital shots still stored on your camera waiting to be downloaded, and so on.
Wouldn't it be nice to look through them and know which year it was taken, who else is in the picture, and what the motivation was for snapping that shot?
So many events are recorded on film, and although a picture is worth a thousand words, they often go unheard because they lie dormant in some drawer, shoebox, or other hiding place.
Think of the books you can fill with your photographic memorabilia!
- Special Events: weddings, graduations, birthdays, religious ceremonies
- Special People: family, friends, teachers, classmates, acquaintances
- Special Places: vacation spots, homes you lived in, places you visited
And what about all the other snippets & scraps you've accumulated over the years...ticket stubs, hospital bracelets, pressed/dried flowers, locks of hair, first teeth lost, etc. Why not make a picture scrapbook?
Scrapbooking is an excellent way to capture and share your life story! And with all the scrapbooking resources available today, it's a cinch!
