My discovery of scrapbooking came about when i was going through some tuff times with my family . I had always journaled but that just wasn't enough anymore . I knew that going to a shrink was just not gonna cut it for me , I had been their , done that , and it just wasn't working . I then went online and saw a website where people would take their photos and put them on pretty paper and put all kinds of artsy stuff and thought? Maybe thats for me! At first my scrapbooks we're journals that weren't like the happy ones I had seen , they were really dark and gloomy and those unless requested I will not show you , we're depressed enough by world leaders and such already and we're all tryin' to stay happy in todays economy . I did start to realize that scrapbooking was indeed my therapy . It makes me see that I have had good memories cuz pictures don't lie and my life hasn't exactly been all that bad . What I would like you all to get out of my blog is to realize that your therapy is in your scrapbooking and trust me , I know , it has helped me so much , its a form of release and I do feel better these days . I hope you get some inspiration and I know I will get inspiration from you.
Here is a layout I did on my grandaughter, this was probably the first that I learned to do some detachment cuz my daughter is a teen and we have had some problems lately so this one helped me realize to enjoy my grandbaby cuz I knew that my daughter wouldn't be staying with us very long and now her and my grandbaby live with the boyfriend/daddy 's house .
