I honestly thought I did it for my kids then I realized I don't really share my daily layouts with them. I really enjoy the process and the creative outlet so I guess it's my sanity saver.

You know, it's really nice to see so many people do scrapbook for the creative outlet. I used to think you could only do it if it were for your kids or something. Well I don't have kids haha! I'm in my 20s & married, so we hope to one day, just not yet. But I scrap 100% for me. Not just because I love the creativity, and boy do I! But also because I love looking back through my albums, especially PL. I only started PL in July last year, and I get last years album out almost every week to look through, it makes me feel all warm & fuzzy inside. I can't wait to have children & be able to include stuff about them, and hope they will enjoy looking through them, but it's ok if they don't. I know I would though, if my Mum had done something similar. But there is a second smaller reason... my Nana (on my Mum's side) has dementia & it's bad, and I think my Mum is going a similar way. I see how much they don't remember & it scares me. Although their long term memory is pretty good, but I figure if I can get into the habit now of recording things, I always will. Life is precious, I want to remember as much as I can

My reasons for scrapping are two-fold and have never changed:

1. To record my family's history for myself and other family members; and
2. As a creative outlet to express myself and fight my way through the depression that has hounded me since childhood.
