New Year's Eve Scrapbooking

Sorry, if you were expecting something more up-to-date. These are mine, my mother's and my grandmother's before scrapbooking became so popular. I have spent some time this morning looking through them, they are filled with things that make me smile and remember, as well as yellowed clippings written of the same things we face today...

I guess Rocky Balboa was right when he said only the clothes are different.
This is a page that really stood out. The article was by George Cantor, one of my favorite Detroit columnists. The last sentence of the article says "two men embraced on a golf course, everything else is just a sand trap".

My hope for 2010 is No Sand Traps for Anybody. Love and best wishes to everyone.

Best Wishes for the Happiest of New Years to you too! I have my old scrapbook from long ago. Then we always kept them but they were nothing like the fancy ones done today. I should do more but now my scrapbook pages are my journal pages done on line. No sand traps for you either!

RIGHT ON!! No Sand Traps for the new year would be wonderful. I always wonder what the new year will bring!

By the way....your new Emma doll is wonderful. WOW!! Her dress is adorable. Very simple and sweet.

It's been such a treat blogging back and forth with you this past year. Looking forward to another year of blogging friendship.
Happy New Year.
