Ah, the memories...

Most of us scrapbook - at least in part - because we want to preserve our family's memories. If you're like me, there are some photos and memories that get pushed to the side for one reason or another.  Personally, I have a tendency to scrapbook newer pictures as they get printed and the older ones sometimes get forgotten.  

This week I'm going to share a layout based on a photo that I took over 4 years ago.  My husband took a voluntary transfer/promotion when his company built a new facility in Georgia.  This is a picture I took on our first trip to visit our new city.  It's been printed out since 2008, just sitting in a basket of photos in my craft room.  This week, I finally decided to scrapbook it:


Here's a close-up of some of the journaling:


My challenge to you is to scrapbook an older photo or memory.  I'd love to see what you create; you can post your work to our Facebook page.

I'm actually busy making new memories with my family this week (I'll share details soon!).  I will be back later today with a second post sharing a few deals that I've been accumulating in my email inbox!

Happy crafting, Nesters!
