I got my first camera in 1968 and that's when the picture taking began in earnest. I try to keep up to date on current events and am working on the older pictures when I can. It's quite a job, but worth all the effort! *g*
The first pages where just 8-1/2 x14 and white. We'd put corners on a picture and neatly add a simple caption. Fairly boring, but you have to start somewhere!
I worked on that all during Jr. High and High School. It was not a true scrapbook but a book about special events in my life. Nothing silly or cute, but more serious and important. I enjoyed working on it and included my best friends and things about my family. Since I've been married, it has been stored in the basement and didn't fare very well. The binder has been destroyed by mildew so that was one of the first things I wanted to compile into a new scrapbook using the new, cool papers and techniques. Besides, I had used rubber cement on some of the pages and I'm sure nothing was acid free!!! YIKES!
This whole photo album covers from High Graduation to when I was expecting my first baby in 1977. Now, that photo album is proudly sitting on my shelf all complete in the new scrapbook styles -- some very nice (thank you...) and some that may need reworking upon reflection later.
One of my favorite poses is of each girl when they were pretty little (1 year or so) sleeping in the pose we call "the stinkbug". They were on their tummies and had their cute little tooshies up in the air! I'd like to share the pictures of the pose with the world but I don't know if I will. Sometimes there are rather "interesting" people who prey on pictures and I don't want to "feed" that habit. So, to keep on the positive side of things -- I'll add things that seem "harmless" and avoid the problem. *g*
