Mamas dont let your babies grow up to be JPEGS!

As many of you know from following my blog or talking to me I recently came back from Close to My Hearts annual Convention.  I learned so much and had so so much fun.

One of the high lights for me was our keynote speaker Stacy Julian founder of Big Picture Scrapbooking .  She made a huge impact on me and really spoke to my heart.   We take so many more pictures today in the digital age than when we had to get our film developed.  I remember dropping off a disposable camera and praying for enough good photos for a whole scrapbook page!  Now we are able to take 100s of pictures of every event, be it a birthday or a walk to the park.  We crop and photoshop them and then print off the perfect picture… sometimes.  Too many times we upload them put them on facebook and forget about them.

Stacy put into words the reasons I love scrapbooking so so much…Its not about the pictures it is about the memory.  So many times I have heard people say I don’t have time to scrapbook and it makes me sad.   Yes the picture is beautiful but what does it mean to you?  Why are you at the pumpkin patch or why is it your favorite dress?  What makes it special or stand out?  That is the important question.

The story you’re most qualified to tell is your own.  If you don’t do it who will.  You are living your story, now start telling it!

Here is the video Stacy Julian shared with us.  It was really beautiful and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
