Hello Girls! My name is Bobbie

Hello and a good day to everyone! Wow this is exciting, a new board of friends to chat with and share info with!!! I found you thru another girl on Scrapjazz forum. This place sounds so great.
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!

Hi Bobbie!

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!!!

Hi Bobbie!

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!
