Why I love Scrapbooking

I just wanted to tell why I have such a love for scrapbooking. First of all it is about the only thing that makes me feel slightly creative, granted I don't have elaborate or spectacular pages, but I love putting them together. It is a lot like quilting, the other thing that makes me feel creative. Now I am about six years behind if you want to look at it that way, but I choose not to. I just enjoy picking up a group of pictures here or there and creating. I don't even know if I'll ever "catch up", but that is not what it is about for me. I think the best part of scrapbooking, and being behind, is the trip down memory lane I get to have each time I find a minute to throw something together. I enjoy seeing how much my kids have changed and how they have not changed at all. I have loved each stage and year of their life and love to remember where we have been. I love it all. I also enjoy the company of friends when I scrapbook, although I get more done when no one is around. I just love that it is something I do selfishly for me and no one else. Thus my love of scrapbooking, or obsession. While cleaning through photos I found this video and realized how much Noah has changed and stayed the same. I may be the only one to find it funny, but hopefully you enjoy
videoI love this, he still complains of a sick stomach if he does not want to do something. He can be such a ham at times and a party pooper the next. Also, did you see how cute James and Caleb are? They grow up too fast, so thank you picture and scrapbooking for stopping time for that short moment. I can forever look back and get a smile on my face.
