Preserving Memories

Do you remember it well?  Memories are precious and this month Designer Crafts Connection members are sharing how they preserve their memories.  I added a challenge by asking if they could create their projects using supplies that could easily be found around the house - before scrap booking became a huge trend...  How do you preserve your memories? Please feel free to share with us.
