By: John Foster

Preserving the good times and letting go of painful memories is the most obvious action for any human being. While memories occupy a space of their own in our hearts and minds, there are many ways in which we can enhance the process of remembrance. Clicking photographs of loved ones and joyous events and even making video films of the good times are some of the most popular methods for preserving and reliving the good old times. A family album is therefore the most cherished possession of many people and it is sure to bring a smile to your face whenever you review the album. On a similar line of thought, a scrapbook is created to preserve the photographs and events in a colorful and memorable manner. Scrapbooking as an activity has always been popular among both children and adults.

Scrapbooking consists of preserving one's history through the photographs, written words and other memorabilia. The effect is completely visual and at times even tactile that helps the viewer travel back in time through the art of scrapbooking. An age old art, scrapbooking has again been revived and given a fresh lease of life, thanks to the advent of online scrapbooking sites. The hobby of creating scrapbooks has achieved tremendous popularity in countries like the United States of America due to the added attraction of online scrapbooking sites. The many options and facilities available in an online website make the art of making a creatively designed scrapbook much more convenient for the creator.

The online scrapbooking sites offer a wide range of layout ideas which could be starting point for many beginners or a reference point for practiced professionals. Once a layout idea is in place, scrapbooking could be taken to great heights by applying every form of creativity possible through the online tools and accessories. One can even select a layout design and style, implement it virtually to check if it is looking as attractive as one thought it to be. In case the layout does not appeal to the online scrapbook user, the user could have it changed at the click of a mouse. In this paper a variety of layouts, designs and styles could be easily tried out till one style is fixed. Further tools and embellishments are easily available to complete the entire scrapbook. Once completed, the user has an online scrapbook ready to be shared with his friends and family over the internet.

Scrapbooking is meant to creatively portray a particular event that has occurred and preserve it for ever in one's memory. A scrapbooking idea could be inspired from anyone or any surrounding. A birthday bash would make a brilliant scrapbooking idea as would a family wedding or maybe even your toddler's first day at school. The colorful pages of your scrapbook will ensure that the event stands still in time, ready to bring a smile to your face whenever you want to travel back in time through the creative and original art of scrapbooking.
