Creating a New Years
People all over the world enjoy scrapbooking

not yet. Each day someone new begins their first scrapbook.
If you’re interested in trying this popular pastime,
scrapbooking starts this new year when you plan ahead to
make your first scrapbook project. A New Years
scrapbook is a great way to start a new hobby
