is the art and hobby of putting your family photos into a safe album. 

    Many older albums were not acid free or lignin free. This leads to a nasty brown staining and the eventual deterioration of albums and the photos inside them. 

 We want to creatively archive our photos so that they are not only fun to look at and interesting to view but are also long lasting. This is the hobby of scrapbooking or memory album making.  You can be as simple or as creative as YOU like.  That is the great part about this hobby.  Be yourself--and have fun with this!

You will receive about 10 more emails a day but they are ALL great info and advice that will really help you toward your goals.  All scrapbookers are welcome!  Join us today at
