My name is Justie, I just recently started to scrapbook (August 2011) How I got into scrapbooking was when we had to put both of my grandmothers into nursing homes. I inherited most if not all of my paternal grandmother family photos. I decided to just take what pictures that I wanted. To start scrapping them into a heritage album and to put names and stories to the pictures into an album. My mom and her brother divided most of their family pictures.
I got interested in scrapbooking when trying to find ways to scrap some of these family photos to tell a story. So, future family members can remember where they come from. I'm also going to do some scrapbooking of not just family photos. But of our family pets through the year. I'm always looking for new ways to get creative with my art.
