So many friendships...

were created through Scrapblog.com. Many of my friends here on the blog first met each other through that site. We would create digital scrapbook pages and visit each other's creations, leaving messages and "loving" them. That's how I came to know Annemarie (Mommy Victory), Peggy (Miruspeg), Wendy, and Julie (Octamom). Tonight as I looked through some of my scrapblogs, I even saw a message from Mummy McTavish! (I didn't remember that link; she probably doesn't either!)

I saw on Facebook over the weekend that Scrapblog has been bought out by Mixbook. I haven't visited that site yet, so I don't know the capabilities, but I'm kind of doubting that the scrapblogs with embedded videos will work.... Fingers crossed, though, just in case. As I looked through my creations, I had to take the time to watch the video clips in my August Rush scrapblog. I loved that movie, the music, the characters.... If you haven't seen the movie or just want to watch the clips, I'm adding it here. It should work at least for a while.


The company is allowing us to download free print quality jpgs of our scrapblogs until February 28. Books or cards must be printed by January 31. I've downloaded five so far. That's also where I make my blog headers, along with a little help from Picnik.

*sigh*

I don't like change very much.

Roban I remember our Scrapblog days like they were yesterday. Scrapblog was my first taste of social networking and I enjoyed every minute of it, even though I got very little sleep!
I will be forever grateful that I stumbled upon that medium which then lead to blogging and Facebook.

I remember this scrapblog too and how much you loved the film August Rush. I was inspired by it as well.

I look forward to the day we meet in real life, I have no doubt that day will arrive.

Meanwhile take care my sweet friend and thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Big hugs and lots of love

I so remember that scrapblog. It's what made me want to see the movie. The music is amazing and the story just too much to handle.

I am so glad we got to know each other and look forward to many more years of friendship.

I know how you feel about the youtube scrapblogs. As I was downloading mine, I realized that those wouldn't work with big blank spaces in the middle of the pages. Too bad.

It was good while it lasted.

Roban, That is one of my favorite movies, I have to come back later to listen. I don't want to wake up hubby. I don't like change either.
