I brought my laptop and scanner when I went to visit my sister a few weekends ago. Figured I could "kill two birds with one stone." Visit with her, and take apart my first magnetic photo album. I carefully pulled the plastic pages away from each page and scanned the photos and newspaper articles I saved.
Taking the photo album apart wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I remember selecting the photos and building the pages. The photos were just in a box, mom never put them in a family album. So I took the box to my single, studio apartment and picked and chose which ones I wanted. I filled the album with photos from birth to when I graduated high school.
I plan on taking on other albums soon. Need to rescue those other memories that are "stuck" in the past. Maybe on my next visit...have laptop and scanner, will travel.
