Quilting or Scrapbooking?

So, my back has really been bothering me the past few weeks and last night I get this great idea that instead of catching up on my destash quilting projects or working on my apron project, I would start making my middle grand her scrapbook and yes, I have saved things for years to do this!

The intent was that scrapbooking would make less of a mess and be easier and more relaxing for an evening....HELP ME!! That was my HELP ME, WHAT WAS I THINKING...scream for help!
Oh my, by the time I was done, well lets just say when I get home tonight I had better get serious about cleaning up my living room.

Going through pictures alone was overwhelming! Great as I am about putting them in order, I could not find her baby pictures last night anywhere....but it was wonderful to go back and look through all the years of her growing and laugh at some of the things she did...like crawling into my cabinets to play, or sleeping upside down, sitting in the flower pot outside....

Quilts or scrapbooks...whichever you do or both, we are creating permanent memories!
