Anyone else into scrapbooking?

When Akira passed away, I got really into it. I made a beautiful scrapbook with ALL of the photos I had of her, as a tribute. I spent a lot of hours looking for dog scrapbook stickers and paper, and now that I have accumulated ALOT. I have started Berlins scrapbook also. I love them! His has the 6 baby teeth I found, his first collar tag, paw print and pictures and what not (his first xmas, snow, a page (LOL well a couple pages) of me and him etc. I love to have this to look back on. Akira's is beautiful, it is a wonderful way to look back on the short time we had together, and remember the happy times. Her cremation certificate and the cards I got from my mom/vet are in there also. In both of theirs I have their microchip # stickers, puppy pictures from the breeder etc. Does anyone else have scrapbooks or something similar for their dogs? Or in general?? Scrapbooking is pretty addicting, but fun! Berlins book is gonna be huge

That's a great way to memorialize your time together. Wish I was more artistic. I didn't even keep up with my childrens' baby books.

I do have my first girl's ashes in a beautiful engraved mahogany box with a picture cube of her that is now right next to my mother's ashes and the picture cube of my mom that is under construction.

I enjoy scrapbooking, but am sadly not very good at it. I see wonderfully artistic, creative pages and I know that I would never in a million years have been able to do it. My pages are pretty pedestrian!

It is a great way to keep photos and mementos.

My daughter did a beautiful one for her trip to Ireland a few years ago and I got into it then. Went out and bought a book, pages, embellishments,cutters etc. Spent a lot of money. I completed three or four pages and gave it up. Took way too long for one page. Gave all my stuff to my daughter.
