  2. I’d add the Piglet Movie to your list. Piglet’s feelings are hurt when the friends won’t let him help and he disappears. They find him using his scrapbook of their past adventures. My daughter was a toodler when this came out. It may have been the first movie we saw with her in the theater.

    • That sounds like such a sweet movie, and what a sweet memory to have with your daughter. Thanks for sharing, Rebecca!

  3. Oh my, I have a lot of catching up to do on movies. They all look so good and inspiring. Can’t wait to watch them!

    • That’s a great one! What a sweet thought. Scrapbooks really are so important for helping us remember the best parts of life.

  4. Something is wrong with my post. I received this one on Feb. 29th @ 12:12 pm and then the second was @ 12:15. What happen with this?


    • Hi, Leora! Did you by chance get the “And the winners are…” post second? We published that blog post and this one back to back.

  5. In “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, the main character uses a scrapbook as a planner. Funny movie! I’ve seen 4 of the movies in the post and they are all wonderful. I especially love the end credits in “Up”, in which they show the continuation of the character’s new adventures in scrapbook photos.

  6. New in Town, starting Harry Connick Jr. and Renee Zellweger, featured Scrapbooking as a meaningful hobby which ultimately proved the main character was where they belonged.
