This blog is about my Life. It's about Scrapbooking because I think about it all the time. It's about movies because they are my second passion. It's about disabilities, living with four generations under one roof and all that other crap that just happens to us everyday.

Sometimes I Scrap...
Sometimes I scrapbook memories, telling the story of the photos and what they meant to us at that time. Sometimes I scrapbook the photos, telling just the people and vital information of all those generations past. Sometimes I scrapbook for fun, choosing from the 100s of photos in order to just play with the pretty paper and fun embellishments. And sometimes, once in a while, I scrapbook to tell stories of which there will never be photos taken by me or my family - stories about our life, our likes, our dreams. This layout is one such story... a story with photos taken from the internet in order to tell the story of dreams - a story that belongs in the Book of Me.

I have to admit that the page was a direct result of being jealous over the travel pages in the Scrapbook Remix class. But it was also a story I wanted told: the story of how these are the places I dream of seeing, something that my grandchildren need to know about me. So even though I had to 'borrow' the photos to tell the story, it definitely has a place in my album... and I am not ashamed one bit that these are not my photos nor my adventures to tell.
Got a dream that you want people to know about? Borrow some materials and create beautiful stories all about you.
