As a contributing editor to [i]Simple Scrapbooks[/i] magazine, Donna Downey redefines traditional scrapbooking and inspires others to open their eyes to dozens of unique possibilities for celebrating life with pictures and written words. She urges people to remember that scrapbooking is less about committing to a hobby and more about sharing the stories of everyday life in any creative medium.Presenting the best of the "off the page" albums, journals and photo displays, this step-by-step guide has more than 65 ways to capture meaningful memories. Donna shares one-of-a-kind ways to use ordinary items, such as using a coin folder screen to display mini photos from a family trip and a muffin tin to show photos of her daughter baking cookies. Most projects can be finished in an afternoon or so, and they invite frequent browsing. They can be displayed in the home or given to family and friends. Either way, people are sure to say, "Wow! Is this a scrapbook?"
