Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

In honor of National Scrapbooking Day, I thought I'd post a few things that I love about scrapbooking:

Telling the story. Bringing the photos to life through words. Refining and polishing my text.

Perfecting the design. Finding balance and unity on the page. Removing unnecessary clutter until the photos and story are the focus.

Finding the perfect font. Sleuthing to find a font to match one I've seen in a magazine. Selecting the one that contributes to the mood of the design. Getting it just right.

Teaching it. Helping others to see that scrapbooking is not only fun, but it can also be therapeutic and life-changing as well.

Leaving the world a better place. Creating pages that will last long after I'm gone and touch people I'll never meet. Using my abilities to tell the stories and share the photos of our lives, right now.

I hope that if you're a scrapbooker, you'll take some time today to create. Know that it is important work you are doing. Know that you're part of a community, a world-wide network, of people who GET IT. Today, we're celebrating that!
