While collecting photographic memories may be an interest of mine, compiling them into unique mementos apparently isn't. It's not that I don't love the finished product; I guess I'm just not devoted enough to the hobby to find the time.
That said, I have indulged in a little artistic sorting having made a scrapbook a few years ago. A special friend had passed away suddenly. She was very close to our then, quite young, grandson, so the scrapbook was intended to help him remember. It was also therapeutic for me. And being so emotionally involved in the project kept me focused.
One of the aspects of the craft I most enjoyed was finding backgrounds and elements online to enhance my project. Though in this particular case it was generally all about daisies, butterflies and sunshine, there were times when I needed to spice up the photos with a little winter seasoning. Here are some cool collections that do just that:
