I had them. I prepared a new scrap book every year. Sometimes it went more than 3 per year. I loved to paste, write and do whatever I liked in my scrap book. My school also encouraged me to do this. Did you have a scrap book when you were a child?

I didn't have a scrapbook when I was a child, however I did have one as a teenager, maybe I was a late starter, I used to put everything in there from train tickets when I went somewhere special to photos, letters from friends and even lovers, and pictures of my favourite stars that I had got autographs from, for special birthdays I would put my cards in and anything else that I could look back on. I think if I had of had a scrapbook as a child mum would have kept it, oh well!

Sore point my friend, I didn't keep it, because I haved moved around so many times I decided I didn't need it any more, it was the past and I didn't want to be reminded of the past.

my mother made a scrapbook of me and my brother from birth to 5 yrs old...when we started school. growing up, I didnt scrapbook, but I had several photo albums that I made of me and my friends. --I have really cut back in the last couple years, but I was a crazy person always taking pictures and making photo albums.

I always had a scrap book when I was a child, and put a lot of memories into it! I have about 20 scrapbooks filled with childhood memories, and I will never let them go! I hope that I will be able to pass them down to my childen and then they can pass them down to their children.. so that people in the future will be able to see what childhood was like when I was younger!
