Hello Girls! My name is Bobbie

I live in Colorado Springs Colorado and have been scrapbooking for soon to be 3 years now. I have a wonderful hubby whom I just adore and am the mother of three beautiful daughters ages 17,22,25. and I have the most wonderful (and may I say handsome) grandson named Jalen who is now three years old. I find that he is my favorite thing to scrap about!! Anytime his is in a photo I scrap double pages, one for my book and one for his book. I started doing this when he was born (my daughter is not a creative soul) and I find that it is a wonderful way for me to leave him a legacy of our relationship, my feelings and hopes and dreams for him. My own mother passed away when my girls were 3 and 18 months so they do not remember her except with what I have told them, and I didnt want this to happen to Jalen and I. So now I write him all of the time on everything I am thinking about. Wow am I ever long winded today, sorry girls! Anyway I just wanted to say hello to you all and will be talking to you real soon!
When life gives you Scraps...Scrapbook!

My grandson, Raevyn, is three years old too. Lots of new fun layouts to do, huh?

I know all about scrapping for boys! Have two of the little stinkers, ages 5 and 8.
And I know what you mean about getting a chance to scrap other photos. When I get a chance to make a girly girl page, I go all out with flowers and pink and frills and lace! So much fun!!!

What a great gift for your grandson. I wish my family had preserved their memories better, especially in the moment like you are doing. Time has a way of distorting things, and my folks' memories are not too strong anymore.
Welcome to the board!
