Indie Birds – Digital Photography to Get Great Scrapbooks
Scrap booking is becoming increasingly popular in many areas of India. It’s a hobby, which combines, creativity, history, family togethrerness and art. Prior to the common use and acceptance, scrap booking was a process of collecting pictures mementos and artwork into a creatively decorated book. The book often told a story of family history or events and was customized to fit the age,
interests and understanding of the recipient. Many times, a parent and child would work on the project together. Most of the fun of scrap booking was in the creation, not the finished product.
