Before you begin your scrapbook, you might need to do a little prep work. First you'll need all your supplies. Pick up any decorating supplies you might need like stickers, markers, and things to keep it all together like tape, glue, and ribbon. You'll also want to make sure the supplies won't damage your photos, the paper or your keepsakes. If would also be a good idea to read your journal, if you kept one, so that you have an idea how you felt throughout this time. It may inspire you with your scrapbook.
