A digital scrapbook is more like an autobiography in some sense. In an autobiography, you concentrate more on your personal life and achievements while in the case of a scrap book it can take in the whole of your family. It can contain photographs of family, baby, short notes, little incidents etc. Further, the scrap booking exercise can involve all the members of your family to make pages. In turn, this will allow each member to express his/her individual style and personalities.
