A Day for Remembering

As a day specifically set aside for remembering those who have gone before, Memorial Day reminds us why it’s so important to preserve our memories. As time passes on, we don’t want to forget those who have touched our lives and left a beautiful legacy behind.

In the spirit of memory keeping and thinking about why we do what we do, we asked you to create a scrapbook page explaining what scrapbooking means to you and to share it on social media using the hashtag #ctmhscraphappy for a chance to win a scrapbooking bundle. Today we’re excited to announce our three winners!

Winners, please send your name, mailing address, album preference, and Memory Protectors value pack preference to ctmhblog@closetomyheart.com to claim your prize.

We invite all of you to search the hashtag #ctmhscraphappy on social media to see other wonderful scrapbook pages made by fellow scrapbooking enthusiasts, and we hope you keep using the hashtag #ctmhscraphappy to share your love of scrapbooking with others.

Memorial Day is an opportunity to remember. As scrapbookers, we make every day memorable by preserving our memories, so they can be cherished for years to come.

In honor of this special month, we want to hear what scrapbooking means to you personally—and we want to give away some exciting prizes to help you with your scrapbooking! Here’s what you need to do: Create a scrapbooking page using the Georgie paper packet* that explains what scrapbooking means to you, like this example:
