Yeah, good idea of uploading images, maybe a on a website or blog -though I'd have to find out about copyright issues.
About the scrapbook, I bought an 8.5 x 8.5 book-bound album. I just make a composition of the photos and clippings on each page and sometimes leave a space for writing. Anyway, I'll try to upload images of some pages soon.
Something that inspired was the scrapbook shown during the final draw for the FIFA World Cup South Africa 2010. They showed a video with a grandfather showing his album to his grandson. His scrapbook looked so cool, it even had autographs and tickets contained in small paper pockets.
Yes, you're right. A lot of things come into your hands: stickers, envelopes, candy wraps, etc. So why not making a compilation of them that in the long run will turn into an enjoyable historical document with your personal vision.
