Ladies..What is your favorite thing about scrapbooking? What initally got you started in this creative field?

For me it was:
1. Using up creative energy
2. Preserving beautiful pictures..knowing that my future kids/grandkids, etc will get to see a peek into a life before thier time...showing them how much family means...makes me smile to think of future generations looking at scrapbooks I've made!
3. Giving me an extracurricular activity, a way to bond with other women across the states.. and world.
4. hmmm...probably more..but all that I can think of now!

There are more things then I can mention but this has been a favorite hobby of mine since the day I found it. I love photography and crafts and it is just an excellent way to intertwine both together. Plus it is a bond that my mother and I share which is very special to me.

At first it was a way to organize my pictures and scraps (movie tickets, etc) into one place. I started doing this in 1996, before there were any acid-free products out there, and before scrapbooking was big.

Now, I do it mostly to be creative. I love looking at a page I just did and showing it off to DH the minute he comes home from work!
