May is National Scrapbooking Month

Did you know that scrapbooking has been around since the early 1800s?  Yep, that's right.  The 1800s were long before every household had a camera.  It was before digital cameras and fancy scrapbooking supplies. Back then, people filled their scrapbooks with "scraps".  They would use clippings from newspapers and magazines. They would save special things from events in their lives.
 If you're a new scrapbooker, then there's no better time to start.  Scrapbooking is a hobby, and it's also  an art form. Scrapbooking is a way to express how you feel about events and happenings in your life. Your scrapbook won't be the same as anyone else's. In fact, I enjoy getting together with others and comparing our different ideas.  Even if a scrapbook page is based on the same theme and format, the pictures will be different, and it's all mine.  
Your scrapbook is an expression of you. It is a way to share something with others, to let them have a peek into your life. Leave something special behind. Make it uniquely yours. When someone looks at it in the future, they will see something special and know they are seeing a part of you.
The question is, what are you leaving for others? 
Thanks for stopping by today ~~ Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!
