    Journaling:
    I suppose the main reason I scrap is to preserve a hundred years of family photos. Even though many are in albums, they are stored away in cabinets and many are not in acid free environments. When I cleaned out my folks’ house, I found thousands of photographs with no dates or descriptions. I’ll confess that many of my own are not documented either. There are so many memories hidden away in undocumented and deteriorating photos. I want to pass them along to the next generations, not lose them to time.

    Maybe, though, the real reason I scrap these days is that I’m enthralled with all the beautiful, cute, and wonderful papers and elements that are available to scrappers. When I discovered digital scrapping, it was the perfect combination for my artistic side and the side that’s a bit of a computer nerd! I’m not interested in the mess and clutter of real-life scrapping, but digital layouts are all contained on a hard drive in ones and zeros. I don’t get glue all over myself and have to clean up paper scraps. My layouts won’t lose color or get torn and I can email finished pages to my son (as well as share them at The Lilypad!) Granted, that hard drive needs to get bigger at an alarming rate. And yeah – it takes up a lot of my time, but I’m happy to be learning and creating and having fun while I’m at it. The downside? I really need to remember to back it up!!!
