You know, I've been thinking about this cute little magnet quote and decided it will serve me in two ways (well three if you count the whole "magnet" thing...)
It's reminding me that, #1, I need to actually GET the photos in the scrapbook so my children can see what's happened in their lives, and B, give up the PERFECTION! Life is more than Christmas, birthdays, awards and family portraits... I need to scrap the "non-event" moments as well - take the opportunity to share the emotion of life - good and bad if need be.
I don't keep a photo album and I probably should! I'm still on the fence about having a scrapbook and a photo album - one with the art and one with the history... I can see the value in having both though. I tend to shy away from those one photo layouts because I've got a lot more photos that show the story than just the three kids sitting on Santa's lap, you know what I mean? I may tend to take more photos than necessary some times. But at the same time, I'd sure like the freedom to just scrap the art and let the photo album hold all those detail photos. But - on the other hand, the "details" are often part of the art for me. So here I sit with splinters in my ample backside trying to find the perfect answer.
