I'm making an Election Scrapbook.
I would have loved to find a scrapbook made by my ancestors from such an historic moment in the past. So, that is why I am making a scrapbook of the election. I took photos with my cellphone while I was at the polling place, that I need to print soon.
I took photos of the people in line, the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin signs, pictures of myself in front of the school, and pictures of all of the things that they hand to you but you can't keep.
I also took photos with my regular camera of the T.V. when the screen said "OBAMA WINS", and of Obama during his speech. Plus, photos of myself in front of the T.V. right after the win. I have collected some newspapers also but, I will not cut them up for the scrapbook.
I went out yesterday and bought a bunch of flag printed papers and blue and red stuff for the scrapbook.
I hope that someone in several years will find this scrapbook and say "Wow, that is what she was doing on that historic day".
