What's my purpose?

I been bibbin and bobbin around with this blog for a while not really doing much with it.  You know a freebie here and there or the odd post but really 'what is my purpose'...

So I've been having a think and you know I firmly believe that everything happens when it's meant to and not before.  I finally have a purpose and that is to blog for my scrapbook projects, one in particular I'm a bit keen about.  Once a month over at SDK is the 'What's on My Calendar' challenge, the idea being to sum up the month in a layout. 

My interest in participating in this challenge I must admit was spurred on a bit by the arrival of a grandchild.   I took part in the December Daily project Ali Edwards had on her blog.  I then ran across a class on Blogging for Scrapbookers on Shimelle Laine's Blog. 

All these things have been leading me to capture what happens each month in our family while it's still fresh in my mind, as I well know how hard it is to recall events from the past.  Ummm... and remembering things is not one of my strong 

I know some of you will be thinking, "huh" but isn't that what scrapbooking is all about and your right.  I'm a little embarrassed to say I've only just cottoned on to that school of thought.  So far I have been trying to re-live the past and doing a poor job of it.  I am kinda hoping that if I scrap in the present, I will remember more of the past... fingers crossed.  I hope you'll join me on my journey.
