As many of you know, I lost my mom in 2012 after a battle with dementia. As the mother I knew and loved disappeared over the past three years as the illness progressed, so did her memories… her first kiss, her first car, her loves and hates, likes and dislikes. It was particularly poignant for me, a professional memory-keeper, to watch my mom’s own past fade. I made a commitment that I would help others to embrace their stories, and to realize that their memories deserve to be captured. One of the results of that commitment was this list of 25 story prompts.
I wanted to share these prompts with a wider audience, but I didn’t want it to be all mine. I enlisted the help of my adored (and adorable!) ScrapHappy family, and they didn’t disappoint. Each scrapbooker has put her very own spin on the prompts, taking them in directions I hadn’t imagined and inserting a bit of herself into the layout. They are as individual as fingerprints, which is what makes them so valuable.
That individuality, to me, is what makes a scrapbook page “publish-able;” not that it uses the latest and greatest product, or that it includes visual triangles or stellar photography, but that it includes one very special ingredient: A piece of the scrapbooker’s heart. And so I am thrilled and proud to bring to you “Your Story Matters: 25 Memories to Capture Now.” Use it in good health, and realize that Your Story Matters.
