what i've come to realize: scrappy edition

Pretty doesn't matter.

My child will not care if the scrapbook layouts I create are contest winners, worthy of being published in a magazine, compiled over hours or days or liked by other crafters. Someday, he will look at them and say, "Thanks Mom, I was wondering what I was like back then and, now I know." He will know through the photos, matched with the anecdotes, dates and places that I sat down to record.

He will know that he is loved.
That his life is worthy of being documented.
That he matters.
That a family history matters.

The pages in his books will tell him so.

TRUE! I love the pages. I wish I like scrap booking. I always love seeing the finished product. My problem is every that you have to do to create the finished product.

Gosh, I know how happy I am when I see one of your scrapbook pages Jen, so your little guy will be totally thrilled, as will his family someday. He's such a doll.
