Today is National Scrapbooking Day! It’s been awhile since I’ve scrapped – for a long time, my scrapbooks stood shut and my supplies lay untouched as I worked through the aftermath of several devastating losses in my life.
This morning, however, as I thought about the significance of this day and the reasons I scrap – I realized how grateful I am for the many memories I’ve preserved along the way. While it’s important to share our scrapbooks with loved ones while they’re alive, it’s not until they’re gone that we realize what a priceless gift we’ve created.
I love Celebrate Sisters because of the many memories this layout evokes – memories not just journaled on a page, but deeply etched in my heart. Seeing these photos reminds me that scrapbooking isn’t just about the prettiest papers or the latest embellishments – it’s about creating pages that record the story of your life.
Today’s layout is dedicated, in loving memory, to my sister Jackie.
