Scrapbook YOUR Story

I would have to say that my favorite thing to scrap is my children...hands down. I love to capture the little moments and big moments of their lives and put them on paper so they will always remember them. Documenting life is certainly one of my passions and I think I could say that their lives have been pretty well documented over the years. They each have scrapbooks upon scrapbooks filled with memories that I hope they will always treasure. This year one of my goals is to try and get MY story on paper. I struggle with creating scrapbook pages about myself. I don't know if it is because I don't want my photo on the page, or if I believe that my life is too boring to scrap. Regardless of the reasons, I rarely do a page on myself and yet, I truly believe that I should. Years from now, I think my children will treasure the peek into my world. Today I was dusting our room and came across a music box that is very special to me but the kids have not heard the story about it. I decided to do a page on it and this is how it turned out...

All products are from Designer Digitals.

It felt so good to write about something so special to me and to know that this story is getting passed onto my children. As I look around their home, this is just one little item that has a very special story attached to it but I can see more items that have a story attached to them. I don't think it is easy to write about yourself but I would say that this page was and I feel so refreshed getting it down on paper. I encourage you to do the same. Find an item that is special to you and write the story of why it is special to you. I guarantee you will be happy that you did.
