Hope to see you in the chat room!

Save Your Photos Day is an annual event that focuses on what we can do to safeguard our photos and treasured memorabilia before disasters or accidents occur. Digitizing the photos is also first step in creating heritage digital scrapbook pages. We will cover scanning tips and show some simple ways you can organize and sort your photos so that getting started isn't an overwhelming task. We'll have a fun scrapping challenge too. Hope to see you there!
