Digital Scrapbook - Twins Souvenirs

One last post about the Twins: my souvenir cup, pin and ticket displayed in a digital "scrapbook". As much as I love paper and ephemera, I think this is the future of scrapbooking. Photos have already been transformed from paper that can tear, crack and age. They now exist as files on sturdier CDs that take up much less space than bulky albums, or on a website, where they take up no physical space whatsoever. Scrapbooks will no doubt be next. I've seen digital scrapbook pages that were created with virtual paper and embellishments, then printed out and placed in an album. Next step: skip the actual album and store the scrapbook pages as photos are now being stored. It's the "eco" way!
