Keep your Scrapping Chin Up!

We all know how much we love our scrapbooking hobby, but like most worthwhile things in life it also brings us alittle guilt! We should scrap more, take more pictures, take better pictures, journal more, scrap more and shop less......Well take a look back on your scrapbook hobby career, and be proud of what you have accomplished! My first scrapbook page was of my oldest Son Joseph's 1st Grade year. When I look back at that page I giggle at my basic techniques, yet I remember how impressed I was with myself and my "creative accomplishment". The last layout I completed was of my oldest Son Joseph's 7th Grade report card! 180 pages later I have scrapbooked his school and sports activities over the years with great pride in him and myself. Joseph starts High School in Sept. and it is my summer goal to be "caught up" before his first High School memory is taken and developed.

What is your summer scrapbooking goal? Set one for yourself, remember there is no due date in scrapbooking, just fun to be had, friends to share layouts with, and memories to be preserved!

I would love to hear your scrapbooking story and see your first and last layout. Email me at

How cute! I was just looking through my albums and came across my first Disney layouts...OMG I will NEVER post those LOL

Even the boys looked at it and said to me "What were you thinking?" It's bad!!!

Wow, Joseph in Mrs. Dayton's class...I just got my prints of Mrs. Dayton's class for this year of Nicholas & I have the exact same pictures! Nice to know some things never change.

My layouts sure have changed, for the better. Looking back on my first page, I am amazed how happy I was with myself & all I had was a pair of scissors, a few stickers, one die cut, a glue stick & a marker. (Acid free? who knows) Now there is so much I can't seem to scrap without...embellishments, stamps, chalks, an assortment of adhesives, special cutters, computer, my little green bug & anything that is a gadget or comes in a must have cute container. So much I had to have a scrapbook room made just for me & all my scrappin stuff!!!!
