I've never scrapped to preserve memories, I think the photos themselves do this. I do like though that our photos are looked at more since I started scrapping instead of just being hidden away in a box somewhere.
We all have different reasons why we scrap. I do it because it's a hobby, it's relaxing and I get to play with pretty things. It's all creative for me. I don't care who gets to keep (or throw away if the case may be) my albums in 100 years time. I scrap for my pleasure only.
So after reading their blogs I decided I needed to go simple and see if that helped get me going again....and it worked. I grabbed an old photo and a piece of bazzill and started from there. No layering, no measuring and no sorting through mountains of papers. I love this page :)
