To Scrap or Not to Scrap...

...that is the question.

So really this is one of those "give me your opinion posts". I'm gathering all my pictures from my time in Utah together, and I've come to a crossroads on something. Do I scrapbook pictures of an ex fiance and an ex boyfriend and me, or not? Obviously nothing will ever happen with said people (nor would I want it to, I mean exes are exes for a reason), but at the same time they were a part of my life for a good chunk of time. I am still a friend with said ex boyfriend but I don't know. It's like part of me doesn't want to remember them, but the other part of me doesn't want to just throw away that part of MY life during that time. Most pictures of my life during such times involve pictures in situations exclusive to being with said boys, otherwise i'd just scrap the pictures of me and other people I still am in contact with.

Any opinions by any one (even blog stalkers) is greatly appreciated.

That's a tough one! If you don't have negative feelings about the pictures, then I say go ahead and scrap them. It was a part of your life that you can look back on and laugh at! And hopefully your future husband will be able to laugh about them, too! I just wouldn't scrap any mushy pics! That might be a little awkward!! Good luck!

Good question! I have been thinking about that with pictures and such on Facebook...I think if you're still friends, it's ok...I would say, does it make you nervous to look at the pictures?? Go with your gut and happy scrapping!

it is tough... but I would scrap them. it is part of who you are! You wouldn't be the stacey we love without some of those experiences!! I wouldn't do the mushy stuff though.... ie, kissing photos, etc.

My philosophy on old photos is this: I like keeping old photos in my photo album because occasionally I like to look back and see the good times I've had with people I may not see anymore, and recall the lessons learned that have brought me to where I am today. So . . . if I were your boyfriend, I wouldn't care if you were to keep such an album (or scrapbook as it were). ;) That's just a thought from a random blog stalker. :)

Thanks girls for all your help. I think I will take all your advice and scrap non mushy ones.

As for the random blog stalker who also is my boyfriend ha ha thanks for your support in me scrapping pictures with other boys ;)
