Freaky Friday (yes, I'm aware today is NOT Friday!)

Last Friday was the last day of the NoelMignon online crop, and my challenge was based on the old book/movie, "Freaky Friday."The challenge was to answer questions about your life now, and then "switch places" with yourself at 13 and answer those same questions. It was a cool way to reflect back on some changes in my life... and some things that have stayed the same.

I think my kids will enjoy looking back on this some day. This is one of the reasons I love to scrapbook: to communicate to my kids (and to myself) sometime at a later time. Like keeping a journal- except with pictures.

I was reminded this week of what is at the core of my scrapbooking when Dr. Greene passed away. I had multiple layouts from when I first started scrapbooking in college, and many of them included pictures & memories of his presence in my life.
My design sensibilities may have changed, but the reasons behind scrapbooking are much the same.
I'm thankful for this hobby.
