Part of the joy that i get out of scrapbooking is that it allows me to reflect back on those that have come before me. This becomes more and more important to me, especially as both my parents are deceased. I feel more of a responsibility to capture my roots for my children, knowing that they will never have the opportunity to hear about their roots from their grandparents.
When my mother died i inherited a large number of photos from her. I never thought of my mom as sentimental, but looking at all the pictures she collected i realised that she was. She keep hundreds of photos (although they were crammed into a dresser drawer in the dining room!) I have started the long ardous process of working through them. Most of them are old, small and damaged and i have been sorting them to have them scanned in and printed. These are my first round:
I cant wait to scrap them...... I will share as soon as i am done!
