National Scrapbook Day/Weekend | @jamiepate for @pinkpaislee Why do you scrapbook. My number one reason I am creative in the world of paper and embellishments.

To celebrate this very fun scrapbook weekend I, of course, created a layout.

As I was working through the papers from Citrus Bliss by Pink Paislee, and more especially this fab photo from my girlfriend trip to Charleston, I was thinking through the question, 'why do I scrapbook?' And it was actually a really simple answer. Because it makes me happy! That is why I do it.

It makes me happy to play with pretty paper and elements and move them around and place them in a pleasing manner. It makes me happy to have a completed page that speaks to my emotions about a time and place.

It makes me happy to look back at those pages in my albums, whether it's the next day, or weeks from today, and relive the moments and feelings on those pages. We are nothing if we don't have our memories, someone once said. I believe that to be true.

So why do you scrapbook? I don't believe there is any one answer. I believe there to be a myriad of answers to that question. And I hope at least one of those answers includes the simplicity of happiness that it may bring to your life.
