Some of the best memories of our lives are those of celebrations with partners and those with our children. Time passes so quickly and before we know it, relationships have passed or we have transitioned through many phases and stayed together. Our children grow up so quickly and though we want to hold on to them forever, it's not the way things are meant to be. Our children are meant to grow up and lead their own lives and we're happy for them and we want great things for them. It's all part of the natural transition of life, from childhood to adulthood, from young to old. The good news is that we have our glorious memories. Our loved ones stay in our hearts every minute of every day.
How can we best represent our memories? They are with us always but there are times when it helps to have something to hold in our hands with words or photos that bring wonderful moments to the present, if only for a moment. The photos of our weddings, when everything was new and our lives were still ahead of us and the photos of the birth of our children. We held them in our arms and promised to be everything they ever needed us to be. We look at those photos and we remember.
Scrapbooking can bring it all together. The words we spoke, the people with what we celebrated and the photos that bring the memories to life.
The next time you're organizing a shower, think about the perfect way to initiate the best times of someone's life. Together you can create scrap books for the bride to be or the mom to be. a shower, think about the perfect way to initiate the best times of someone's life. Together you can create scrap books for the bride to be or the mom to be. You do not need to predict the future and you do not need to have the photographs of the big day. You just need hopes and dreams and the photos that you're planning on taking. Build the scrapbook around those things and it will become a way to channel wonderful wishes for the future.
Yes, scrapbooking is the facilitator of hopes and dreams or it's the facilitator of memories of past hopes and dreams. Either way, it makes life and love all the more real. It brings moments out fully in pages filled with words, colors and decorations.
Scrapbooking is certainly great fun to do by yourself, but creating scrapbooks with friends who love you and have the highest hopes and aspirations for the future make it all the more wonderful. Scrapbooks enable us to embrace the past and the future.
