Image via WikipediaHave you ever tried scrapbooking? Many stores have scrapbooking supplies and many are reasonably priced.
Take a few of your old photos, trim them, and paste them to your page. Use a few borders, trims, buttons, stickers, or whatever you have available, to decorate the page around your photos.
If you've left a few empty spaces, use them for journaling. In other words, write something about your photos. When were they taken? What were you doing at the time? How did you feel? If there are other people in the pictures, who are they, what were they doing then, what are they doing now?
Again, the writing process will help improve your writing skills. In addition, you've used your creativity and created a keepsake.
