A Birth Certificate shows you were born.
A Death Certificate shows you died.
A Completed Scrapbook shows you LIVED!

An imperfect finished page is better than
an perfect page 'someday'
that only exists in your head.

Find inspiration in every day things!

Everyone Can Scrapbook

Whether you consider yourself creative or doubt your artistic ability, you'll soon discover that being innovative is easy with a bit of assistance. Add a few basic tools, a little time, and a handful of photographs and you've got all the components to build a scrapbook chronicling your fondest memories.

Be selective.
You don't have to include every photo. Choose the photos that best represent the moments you are trying to capture.

Tell the story.
Journaling allows you to complete the tale your photos have only begun to tell. Handwritten or computer-generated texts covers the details and emotions surrounding each photo -- anything from names, places, and dates to a log of what happened to a description of your feelings, thoughts, or impressions.

Enjoy yourself.
Remember, each page is your blank canvas. Create layout that suit your mood and style. Work at your own pace.
