Memories

One of the reasons I scrapbook is because I love to preserve memories my sons will probably not remember when they are older. You see I don't, I have crates full of photo's from my childhood, perfectly dated but with so many faded memories that I wish I could remember more.....

When Dawn gave us this challenge I had absolutely no clue what my take on the dare would be, I was so fixated on the title and the meaning of the song I didn't see it. The line in the song that a friend of mine pointed out to me. And all of a sudden it was so clear what I would scrapbook about.




These pictures are of my 4th birthday, I can see we just got back from England (I know this because of an unapproved dissastrous haricut a friend of my mom had given me) but that's it ... My son asked me what I was thinking when I was blowing out the candles and I couldn't tell him because I don't know what my hopes and dreams were then. And THIS is why I scrapbook, so I can tell them when they ask this about themselves.



Materials used : PP by Daisy D, uniball signo white, mini rolodex card, heidi Swapp ghost clock, heidi swapp word, 7 Gypsies gaffer tape, Bingo card, 7 Gypsies stamp, PP Creative Imaginations.

Love reading why people make certain lay outs, I totally agree with your reason for scrappin, besides enjoying creating itself.

Wow Daan, the layout is beautiful and the story makes it even richer. Just imagine how much memories you are giving your boys to enjoy when they are older...
