Scrapbooking is one of the most common ways for saving the best memories in our life from being forgotten. It is like a documentation for our history to remind us of the happiest moments that we experienced and to record the different stages and events in our life. All of that is kept in what is known as a scrapbook that can be found in different techniques, styles and sizes. In your scrapbook album, you can put photographs, postcards, tickets, printed media, artwork and other necessary elements, but all of these items need a description without which we will not be able to remember what happened and what are the occasions of these photos.
In order to remember the different occasions on which the photographs were taken, you need to add what is called journaling to your scrapbook. It can be written in several ways such as a list of words or you can write what you want in another form that is like stories. You can add a poem, song or quotation to your scrapbook. The words that you add can be used to describe the photograph that you put, the events that took place or to describe your feelings and emotions during that time.
