this is why i scrapbook: official entry post

i'm so happy that i decided to take part is shimelle.com's little adventure this month. i first wrote about it here and again here, and today's post is my completed mini album. this was such a fun album to create and i really love how it turned out - lots of meaningful photos, lots of bright colors, and it accurately reflects why i love of scrapbooking and taking photos. i hope you enjoy seeing it here as much as i enjoyed making it!!

journaling: this is my attempt to explain the reasons why...why i carry my camera with me everywhere i go, why i have to visit a new craft or scrapbook store every chance i get, why i spend hours reading scrapping and design blogs, and why i sometimes stay up until the wee hours of the morning playing with scissors, pretty paper, ribbons and brads....

to tell my story

and our story

and his story

and his story

to celebrate the past

and relationships

and the everyday moments

to remember the places we visit

and moments that pass in the blink of an eye

to capture this...and this...and this
