I scrapbook, as much as I blog, because I want to preserve the moments of our failures and triumphs in life. I always have a strong passion for keeping a diary to record my thoughts and important events. For me, scrapbooking is also a way of “documenting my life”.
Speaking of scrapbooks, I am really fond of making any kind, be it a friendly scrapbook, wedding, baby or mom scrapbook. I also indulge in making photobook or mixbook. They are just exactly the same as the scrapbooks but are using different media. I prefer making photobook coz the pictures and stuffs you keep will be safe from getting dirty and wet. I use photo albums – the ones with adhesive pages and a plastic cover to protect them. I paste cut-out pictures and clip arts from magazines and the like. Sometimes, I google in images that I think would best fit into the scrapbook page, then print, cut and paste them. I write stuffs about the images and some other memorabilia.
My friends have already seen my creative projects. In fact, I use this as a souvenir or a gift to dear friends and loved ones. Yes, I am crafty and I would also like to use my creative skills here! ;-D
I chose a photo album that has a romantic cover. A design that is not so overdecorated but touching.

Every clip art in this page was cut from cosmetic brochures.
