how to inspire with scrapbooking


amazing ways to inspire another

I have shared on this blog numerous times my personal therapy when scrapping. When I am in a scrapbook, memory keeping mode of creativity, it is usually another person or an event I am 'scrapping'. While in the midst of the photos and embellishments and words, my mind is set firmly on the people in the photos. I pray for them. Think about them. Process what is going on with them. This happens EVERY TIME. It's just one of the reasons I am drawn towards scrapbooking all these years.

One of the ways I take that even further is when I am telling a story about a family member, as I am here of my middle daughter's prom adventure. These are only a handful of the stories. But I did not need a huge tome of photos to do what I wanted to do here. I wanted to show her and remind her of her best self. Her stepping out in adventure self. Her get all dressed up and isn't it so much fun self.

I wanted to add words in here like, Shine. Be a Light. Own Your Dreams. And Perfection. I wanted to give a lot of highlight to this person she very often keeps hidden. And to give her a reason to indeed BE that light. To remind her of how much she is loved. How beautiful she is not only on the outside, but on the inside as well.

Telling her story by way of photos and pretty things and purposefully chosen words is just one way I can inspire others with my scrapbooking. I don't want this process of creativity that I love so much to be just about me. Don't get me wrong. I find this creative outlet very fulfilling. But I want it to be more than that. I want it to be my story to someone else who just might not be thinking these thoughts about themselves.
