So let's document it. The why. Why did you do this. Why did you spend hours upon hours, and fill book upon book with memories? What was the motivation...the push?
Somewhere down the road of life someone will ask that question, and when they (child, grandchild, great-grandchild?) come across the page stating the reasons it will be quite the treasure won't it!? My grandmother scrap booked back in the 50's and 60's. Hers were mostly newspaper clippings of my dad and uncle in the local paper for school or sports achievements, or Boy Scout activities. Unfortunately I don't have those books, but I did get to look through them when I was little, and it was cool to feel the family "time travel" aspect of it. To see my grandfather, who died before I was born, standing with his sons. To see great grandparents or uncles and aunts I never met in family situations with family members who were still living. Somehow I felt the connection. So to me the "why" is just as, if not more, important as the "what" you are scrapping. So tell us about it!
