Variety is a good thing!

This week's prompt over at Bliss & Folly, for the Focus 52 project, is VARIETY. Since I always blog about my personal daily wonders & occasionally post peeks of my client sessions, I thought a great way to explore the variety of my creative surges would be to do a post about my scrapbooking.

I started scrapbooking when my oldest daughter passed. It was very helpful in the grief healing process, and it helped me to celebrate & share her life. No, those pages are not posted here. I never photographed them it was a long time ago, though seems like yesterday.

I continued through my second daughter's life, and the scrapbooks for her were displayed at her funeral. This allowed me to share those sweet little moments with people who otherwise would never have known what a sweet & funny little girl she was. No, those pages are not posted either. I do have them photographed, but not saved on this computer. Sorry.

Now I get to scrapbook my son. He will live to be a ripe old wise man...if I have anything to do with it! His books are for everyone to watch him grow into the man we all hope to see our boys become. 

I even throw in some smaller projects about my own life, my travels, my wonderful husband, my passions, & whatever else I feel inspired to document for memory and archiving.

Did I mention it's also a great way to show off my favorite photos?????

I have missed seeing your work. I have watched you grow so much over the past couple of years I have followed you. David has grown so much, and I can't wait to watch him grow through your photos into the wonderful man I know he will become. And you have two beautiful angels on your side watching over you all.

Your scrapbook pages are wonderful! My daughter scrapbooks, though less frequently now. Her eleven year old son loves to look through the ones she's done for him. Bet your son does too!

I love digital scrapbooking. Hopefully when school is out this summer...since "we get them off". LOL Thanks for stopping by! :)

These are all wonderful pages, but that first one is just striking. I love that one.

Those pages look so wonderful. Your little ones are going to be so blessed in the years to come to have these to look at.

I love your pages! I've been wanting to return to my scrapbooking, but can't seem to find the time. Looking at your pages just reminds me that I should get away from the computer, away from the camera, away from the chores, and get back to my creative area with my papers, photos, and adhesives. Thanks for the reminder. (Love the variety, btw!)
