Great Scrapbook & Pressbook Support

There’s just something about news clippings! Charleen Samuels, 2009 Oklahoma Division Convention Chair put together a clippings packet – several papers as well as pre and post PR – of the Convention and offered it to all for postage.

If using as part of a record of history, don’t forget to neutralize any acid content and use archival products.
