Why I Scrapbook- WHO

Who do I scrapbook?

My husband- I love scrapbooking memories of the two of us together. I am still working on scrapbooking all of my favorite wedding photos and love finding a new favorite picture each and every time I look for a wedding photo to scrapbook. 

Our little one- I have been scrapbooking some of the ultrasound and baby bump pictures with journaling about my feelings surrounding this wonderful transition in our lives! 

Look at those feet!!! Who couldn’t love those feet?!?!

Our Cat- I love these two and get so much joy out of watching Eureka play with her many toys, catch her mice that I throw at her, and be the most adorable and annoying cat all rolled into one body! 

Over the past year I have evolved from mainly scrapping about myself to scrapping about myself, my relationship, my family, and my friends. Also our cat. I’m a tiny bit obsessed with our cat.

I also scrap about everyday things such as workouts, goals, and food! I love documenting simple memories and my feelings associated with those memories. For me, scrapbooking is therapeutic and I have taken the approach of documenting some of my favorite memories as well as some difficult memories through scrapbooking.

I created this layout a few weeks ago as I am trying to get caught up on all of my wedding layouts. I love this picture of my brother and me before my wedding last May. It was such a special moment because through much of the wedding planning, I was unsure that he would be able to take time off from the Peace Corps to come home and celebrate with us. I am so glad that he was able to be home and stand with me on my wedding day.

  1. Great to see someone else's perspective on why they scrap. Congratulations on the little one! Your layout is beautiful, with the trim down one side and pretty scroll work on the other. Love the color combo too!

  2. I really love the LOs you do of yourself. It inspires me, who needs to do way more on herself. This is another one of my favorite LOs of yours!
