Scrapbooking Makes Memories Linger

Email is a wonderful thing. You see pictures of people you never see in years. You watch children grow up, and for the first time, you feel like you know them when you see them again.

You also have a bunch of new pictures. They can sit around in your computer and take up space, or you can move them off onto a thumb drive, disc, or external drive. However, you can still have them printed!

There is something wonderful about looking at pictures from a photo album. Many people are doing digital scrapbooks, but nothing is as beautiful as real paper, real matting, actual layers and touchable embellishments.

This is just one page of this heirloom album. Another page was made which compliments the color scheme, co-coordinating the two pages which lay open together.

No doubt about it. This craft becomes an heirloom. This photo album will be treasured for years.
