I resisted the urge for years. It was just too darn expensive! But recently I have been looking through a scrapbook that my friend Karen has been putting together and I’ve become inspired. I’ve always been a picture nut, but then I get them developed and they sit in a box. It’s time to show off my beautiful family. So Friday I scrapbooked my first 2 pages. I was very impressed with myself. I have never considered myself the creative type. After scrapbooking my first pages I felt I needed to know more about different looks and materials. I didn’t want all my pages to start looking the same.
Off to the library I went to check out a few books with lots of color photos in them. I spent last night reading up and staring at the photos. They were worlds beyond what I did and what I think I could ever do. What made me think I could do this??!! So now I’m taking it slow, really thinking about what I want and how I can accomplish it. My scrapbook will never be the layered, multicolored, multitextured masterpiece the ones I saw in the book are, but I think I will someday treasure it just the same. (not my work)!
