I'm Back

After a week of three kids, stomach flu and the washing machine, I feel like talking to you.

I started Scrapbooking in February 2005 as a way of playing with colour and design. And I am hooked.

For the last 4 -5 years I have been quilting which I love. But it has its drawbacks - big projects, time consuming, expensive. I needed something that I could play with.

Then paper came into my life. My aunt makes cards and loves stamps. We get together as often as we can and attend all the craft shows together. But there are only so many cards I could make.

I had belittled scrapbooking because I thought it was about sticking photos in themed pages - birthday photos on paper of a cake - and that wasn't my thing.

Then I got myself a copy of SCRAPBOOKING MEMORIES and fell in love.

I have know completed about 45 pages and get excited about every one.

Once I get through the family dose of the stomach flu, I will add some of my favourite pages.

Please tell me how you started in scrapbooking. I'd love to hear for you

See you soon.
