I am scrapbooking my daughter's high school memories, and I want to include articles cut out from her school newspaper. Would it be better to copy the articles for the scrapbook, or is it okay to use the original newspaper ? Thanks!

Great question! In this case, it's up to you! Some people like to include the original article or photo and others like to make copies and put those into albums. If you go the copying route, you'll be able to manipulate the size of the article to best fit your scrapbook, which you won't be able to do with the actual newspaper clipping. At the same time, preserving the original will be very special for your daughter and for future generations. Hope this helps!
