The layout was about Why I Scrapbook?

The journaling reads:
I believe everyone needs a creative outlet. I don’t sing or play an instrument. I don’t garden or knit.
I tried my hand at basket weaving and drawing. The weaving drove me crazy and I enjoyed the drawing but did not consider myself to be good enough.
Then I discovered scrapbooking. It was a combination of so many things I liked and wanted to do
creatively. Things like photography, journaling, paper, glue and imagination. It brought back some
of the joys of my childhood; making something from paper and glue. I didn’t realize how much I loved doing those simple tasks.
Since then it’s grown into something more. Documenting my life and the life of my family. Expanding my views by focusing on the everyday. Sharing ideas and inspiration with others. Connecting the past with the present. Retelling the times inour lives that shape who we are and who will are becoming.
Yes, it’s time consuming and can get expensive, but it’s my creative outlet. I would rather work on my creativity then spend time watching television. It’s a choice. Ultimately, it comes down to the fact that it brings me joy and peace to create these little pieces of life art.
