"Do You Scrapbook?"

When asked if I scrapbook, the simple answer is, "no". It's rather ironic, since I had the opportunity to spend two years working at Archiver's, a fabulous paper-crafting and scrapbook store. The ladies I had the pleasure of working with at the store, both employees and customers, create the most wonderful and inspiring scrapbook pages. I admire their work and appreciate the time, effort, and love that went into each layout.

Although I do have a few completed traditional scrapbooks, my primary interest has always been the photographs. Add to that my long term interest in computers, along with the need to generate multiple copies of my ancestry pages, and digital scrapbooking is a perfect fit.

Here is an example of a double-page spread I did recently of some of our family photographs.

I create each of these pages as 8x10's and upload them to a site where all my family members can print their own copies. This way, any work I do can easily be shared.

Whether your pictures are being preserved in a traditional album, a beautiful hand-crafted scrapbook, or as digital images, I encourage you to get those photographs out of boxes and ready to share.

Tell your story....
