I have pulled out some old pictures to think about scrapbooking, and I was really surprised at all the memories that came flooding back, not by looking at the subject of the photos - but by all that was in the background! A photo of my husband holding my niece had me writing pages about the furniture, the apartment, the cooking "oops," the time we had an argument and I threw his clothes off the balcony, etc. When you look at the pictures, study the background and see what it triggers.
