When I look back on the scrapbooks I first created, I want to tear them all apart and start over. but, I don't they are appropriate for that time in my life and where scrapbooking was then. I have even passed the scrapbooking gene onto a couple of my children. when they were younger and I wanted to work on my books, I would set them up on a side table and give them pictures and pages and let them go. they loved it and it kept them busy while I did the "real" books. Now as we are getting ready for my daughters graduation I have dug out the books they made and get pleads not to put them on display! I laugh and say "Oh yes they are!".
