I now know that I am a scrapbooking junkie because my kids now say ‘scrapbooking’ instead of ‘cheese’ when I take a photo of them. But I have to say they love looking through my albums and I love seeing their reactions each time they turn the page! They get so excited remembering all the special events and memories we have shared together.
A few weeks ago I held two Mother’s Day Kids Workshops. I know I’m crazy! I held the second workshop because the first one overflowed with numbers. The children completed a ‘Simply Said Book’ by Creative Memories for their mums or grandmothers. The workshops were a hit and I’ve since received lots of positive feedback from parents. When setting up for the workshops I displayed a few of my albums for parents to have a look through. At the end of one of the workshops I could see a few children gathered around my display. I walked over to see Miss Layla turning each page and telling all the children about the stories in our albums. At the time I did not think much of it, but once everyone had left and I was packing away I stopped and thought – that is the reason why scrapbooking is my life. It’s my gift to them (my kids)!
