Scrapbooks Preserve History

Do you have a lot of family photos and keepsakes, but absolutely nowhere to put them?

Try a scrapbook.

That's what these folks were doing Thursday night at the St. Martin Library in a scrapbooking workshop known as "Do It Simple: Creative Memories."

Creative Memories consultant and class instructor Michelle Cadman says scrapbooking is not just a hobby anymore, it's a necessity.

"Since the 9/11 incident, people seemed to be flocking stores and home shows and those kinds of things to preserve their pictures and you know, tell about their family because it's important to let people know about you," said Cadman.

She says the first step to successful scrapbooking is to develop and organize all of your pictures and items into certain categories.
