Who doesn’t remember the time before seat belts, car seats, and jumping on an airplane to take a trip? As a child, it was a thrill to load the family in the car for an across town or cross country trip. A time before i-pads or headrest DVD players. A time BEFORE there were “Golden Arches” at every other exit. A time when unplugging didn’t create an anxiety attack but instead prompted us to not only connect as a family but to connect with history, nature, and strangers from all parts of the country. At the time we didn’t realize how soon those trips would be remembered as our Vintage Vacation and yet…here we are.
Believe me when I say that scrapping on a regular basis is the best way to not only keep the story alive for future generations but to keep it accurate. If you still have vintage photos from family trips that haven’t found their way onto a page, now is a great time to get that done. Make a commitment to do a few pages a week. If you’re in the middle of spring break it’s an excellent time to involve your children in the vintage vacation process. Scrap a page from a recent trip where the memories are fresh and then scrap an old trip and tell your family the story as you reminisce. Even if you’re in your 50’s, it’s pretty hilarious to see the reaction from kids today about how different it was when YOU were growing up.
Whatever you scrap, whatever memories you’re documenting, be sure to tell the story so those details will be around forever.

The Over The Fence Designs Creative Team Went All Out on this kit. They dug deep and found photos from yesteryear and yesterday. I am always amazed at the pages that come back in when they get a new kit to work with. If I had to pick a favorite it would be impossible. I love all of the black and white photos and the pages that tell the story. After all, scrapbooking is all about telling the story so the next generation has a reason call our pages a keepsake.
