Photo album love

Spending recent days looking at photos and planning to buy a new SD card for my camera made me realize that

I love albums and scrapbooks. I have made two scrapbooks of vacations and they are so great to look through. It brings back such


My favorite album, (Okay, one of my favorites!) though, is a tiny album I put together of various photos from when I was little

to a few years ago. I added quotes and sayings to match each photo.I found some stickers with quotes and sayings on them.

I had such fun shopping for those at our local hobby store!

Matching the quote to the picture was a nice exercise. I tend to get nostalgic and sentimental, anyway, but creating this was a very

moving process. I have photos of family members that are no longer here, vacation photos and graduation photos. Capturing memories.

I think that's why this album means so much. It holds treasures of my heart, providing comfort and inspiration.

I am so grateful for the people, places and things I have in my life.

Perhaps a quote that sums it up best is this:

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take. It is measured by the moments that take our breath away." Hillary Cooper

and also

"Collect memories, not things." Aarti Khurana

I have never gotten into scraping booking, but we do have a couple older family albums when our daughter very young.

I am a great one for physical photographs and can spend h-o-u-r-s going through them.

Before digital cameras , I took many photos of my kids and family and had the pictures developed and I put them in photo albums. I have many of those. Now, with the digital photos, I create online photo albums.
