I'm a scrapbooker. I've already scrapped a page about this blog, now I am blogging about my scrapbooks. Talk about a close encounter of the hobby kind...
So, here are some of my scrapbook pages. They aren't in any particular order, and they're the ones I think are blog-worthy. (I'm not going to put the ones I don't really like on here.)
This one was done for my hot-cocoa lovin' kiddo in 2005.
This one was done the weekend we got the dog. The lay-out was patterned after Susan Goetter's design on her blog.
An artsy shot of the dog with the words of the dog-food commercial about shelter dogs. I got this idea from another scrapper on scrapbook.com
You can see more of my pages on scrapbook.com (My name on that site is "quilt", which I used because I couldn't think of anything else at the time.)
I find scrapping and card-making to be such relaxing hobbies. I love the planning, the cutting and pasting, the patterns on the papers, all the stickers, and of course, the finished results. I have recently played around with digital scrapbook layouts and have found that it is almost as fun as the cut-n-paste version. I use a company in Georgia to print my 12" x 12" pages for a whole lot less than FedEx/Kinkos.
It is so nice to have a history of me and Ab in photos. Sometimes, we pick up a scrapbook from years ago and sit down and just relive the past together. It is a bonding time and it shows her that I value her and the time we have spent as a family.
Thanks for looking- why not drop me a line and share some of your hobbies with me!?
