Stopping Time

I've slowly been working on some of my own scrap pages, including some for my "Memories" albums. This first one, of my sister and I when we had our braces, I made and posted in my on-line gallery quite some time ago, but just never mentioned it here. The second one, of my old pets is a new one.

I'm not one to really sit and look at old photos for a long time. But once we put our photos into a layout and decorate the page, they become more desirable to look at. Why is that, I wonder. That is the beauty of scrapbooking, isn't it.

I found this quote a long time ago and have been wanting to use it on a page. I have no idea where I found it, or who to credit it to. But it really speaks to the heart of a scrapbooker, so I will leave you with this...

"Why do you take photos? For most of us, it is in hope that we will remember the emotions and feelings we had at specific moments. It's as close as we get to stopping time."
