Saving Family Keepsakes for Scrapbooking

I'm new to scrapbooking, and I still can't believe all the
possibilities there are for scrapbook layouts.

When I first began I pulled out and organized a lot of my
daughter's childhood photos. Also collecting dust on my closet
shelf was a box of other family keepsakes I'd kept throughout the
years.

For example, when we went to Disney World, in addition to all the
pictures we had taken, I kept the plane tickets, the cards you
get to open your hotel door, meal vouchers, luggage tags, post
cards, and theme park passes. These will make a fun addition to
our Disney World-themed scrapbook pages.

For school, there are a number of things you can keep.
Certificates, award ribbons, and report cards are just a couple
of ideas. You can also break this category down into smaller
ones, like school sports, plays, band, etc. I've kept all of the
programs from my daughter's school plays, which will make a great
addition to the pictures I have of her "in character."

Other keepsakes might include handmade cards or little notes your
child might have left you from time to time. These memories are
priceless, and could never be re-created even if you tried.
Keeping these treasures in a family scrapbook will ensure the
memories are preserved.

For holiday memories, you might have childhood Christmas wish
lists, family letters, holiday cards, party invitations, or
favorite family holiday recipes. I even keep thank-you cards I
have received.

Looking through my box I also found some other types of family
memories that would also make great themed scrapbook pages.
Wedding announcements, funeral programs, and graduation
announcements are a great complement to your family photographs.

Hopefully these ideas will get you thinking of things you might
have tucked away somewhere that would be a great addition to your
scrapbooking projects. If not, it's never too late to start.
