Scrapbooking has become a passion of mine over the past two years!! My daughter, Becky introduced me to the art. I started off at a run. Sometimes I get bogged down and quit for awhile but then once again I get going and am into another book.

I just finished my son, Jon's book from birth to present day. It was fun to do to watch him grow up all over again. When you sit and look at the pictures you can get a little weepy just with the memories that seem to flood back into your mind.

They were little once and now so grown up with families of their own!! Man, I sometimes hate to think about that. I know that it just makes me realize the shortness of this life that we live here on earth.

I am now getting ready to start my 1st daughter's book. This should be fun!! I am just a little more into the "girly" things. I have her front page done and so need to get busy with the rest of her life. Now I will get to watch my little 6 lbs. 15 oz. red headed baby grow up all over again!! This is FUN!! You should try it.

I have a goal now that I am in my 60's. I am going to TRY to put every loose picture into an album. That way someday when my kids have to deal with all the "stuff" that I leave behind they will not have to worry about pictures. What a goal you say!! Yeap it is.

I love pictures. I love taking them and working with them.

One thing I have given myself permission to do is to shred those that I am not going to be using. That was hard at first but it only makes sense. Why leave these around for people to destroy anyway. Just do it...as Nike says.

Better get off this blogging stuff and get onto my other passion...scrapbooking.

PS..this page was done by another wonderful scrapbooker...Not mine..but isnt she sweet???

Mrs. Sandy, way to go on your scrapbooking goal. I do lots of scrapbooking too, and I think it is such a great way to relive important memories! My hubby and I have lots of travel scrapbooks!
