We’d like to acknowledge those of you in the military and those who have loved ones who have served or are currently serving their country. We honor your service and your sacrifice. Thank you!
As scrapbookers, there are times when we use this craft to help us get through difficult and challenging times. We’d like to share some layouts with you from a couple incredibly strong women who scrapbooked their military journeys. We hope their layouts inspire you to record your military experiences. If you have a military layout you’d like to share, post it on Club CK.
“Through scrapping, I’ve come to find my family is included in the prayers of many people I don’t even know.”

“My scrapbooks are a way to document, celebrate and, at times, vent about military life.”

“I’m only half-kidding when I say scrapping helps save my sanity during deployments. In addition to keeping me from going completely and utterly insane, it leaves me with a lasting reminder of my thoughts and feelings at the time. It leaves my husband with a piece of home.”
