What does Scrapbooking mean to You? Share your stories...

I found this quote and it reminded me why I started scrapbooking to begin with. My first experience of scrapbooking was with all my sisters in laws, and they were all hot and heavy into it, needless to say I was overwhelmed. All I really wanted to do was soak it in and color as I can't mess that up! ;-) But then I got hooked on dry embossing and made my first card... and have been dabbling ever since...

Scrapbooker's Verse

(Kimberly Rinehart)

We gather up pictures
and bits of our past
and scrapbook them into
a gift that will last.

We write about milestones
and travels and such--
the times of our lives
that we treasure so much.

A few special photos,
a family tree,
a few thoughtful words
and soon we will see...

The album we've made
is much more than a book.
It's worth even more
than the time that it took.

It's a gift holding memories
and made with great care
by hearts and hands
with love to share.

After reading this quote and sharing my story of scrapbooking does anyone else have one they wish to share?

Relax with Nature

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.
