  1. I do many of the activities you listed in your post. I take my photography very seriously and have sued some of my hard-earned travel nurse money to invest in a good digital camera. So when I’m done with photography, I can scrapbook about my travels. There are some great downloadable scrap booking tools and even some available online. Gotta keep hold of those great travel nurse memories, right??

    That’s great Yvonne. Those travel nursing memories are way to important to not document. What are your favorite sites for scrapbooking?
