We all have tough subjects to scrapbook, wouldn't you agree? For me, mine is scrapbooking my parents. They died when I was 19 and it's taken me awhile to learn to live with it. My "new normal" as I call it. I finished my mini album of my mom, took me 11 years but I was "happy" while working on it and didn't shed one tear. It truly was a big stepping stone for me.
