Start Collecting Memories

96th EDITION OF THE Carnival Of Genealogy

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is:

Scrapbooking Your Family History!

- ¤ -

Here's a real challenge for you... Who's up to the task?

- ¤ -

Create a scrapbook page on any theme that suits one
or more of your vintage photos.

- ¤ -

If you don't feel very artistic, lay a few photos down on a piece
of colored paper, add a few captions, take a snapshot of it, and voila!
You have yourself a digital scrapbook page!

- ¤ -

If you enjoy creating traditional scrapbook pages,
take a picture of one you've done, and that works too.

- ¤ -

If you're up for creating something more artsy,
buy a kit or make your own. Go for it!

- ¤ -

If you've never done scrapbooking before, this is the opportunity
you've been waiting for! If you're an experienced scrapbooker,
dig in and enjoy the creative process!

I'm all over this carnival!! Do you "picture" the scrapbook pages telling the story, or are you envisioning a narrative to go along with them? Either way is fine?

Another terrific poster, fM! I thought you might have a hard time with this one but I see you came through again. Thanks!

Jenna, please do include a narrative if you're so inclined.

You almost had me this time. It took some real thought.

I've got my scrapbooking kit together and I'm going to do my first scrapbook page. I'm excited!
