A Scrapping we will go...

I had the most wonderful day yesterday! I went to my first official 'Scrapbooking Event'! I am an avid card maker and paper crafter, but have been hesitant to delve into scrapping, until now. My friend and fellow card maker, (Hi Debbie!) invited me to attend a day of scrapbooking at a local community centre where a group of scrappers gathered for a 12 hour long day of creating memories. I don't know why I've never taken the plunge, but I think maybe I was feeling a bit overhwhelmed as to where to start. I have several boxes full of photos and memorbilia and making a decision as to what to scrap was just too big. I'm a Libra and it's in my nature to weigh decisions out, endlessly, but yesterday helped a lot. Seeing the other ladies busily working away, chatting, cropping, arranging and gluing made it look so easy.
I have to confess that I took cards to work on instead of scrapbooking yesterday, but I will be ready for next time! I will be digging into some long closed boxes of stuff to extract some photos and I have already planned my first project.
When I got home last night, I was so inspired that I did some computer research on the topic and found this video which moved me to tears. I thought I would share it with you, it's absolutely beautiful! The video is called, "Make a Wish - An Interactive Scrapbook", by thestampgoddess, also known as, Tresa Black, http://fabulouslyartsy.weebly.com/about.html. Simply amazing.

  1. **Sniff, sniff . . . ** so true -- our life takes us in so many different directions, it doesn't matter as long as we are happy. Glad you had fun yesterday -- you got a lot done -- scrapbooking or cards, doesn't matter what you do as part of the "club"! LOL You'll have to let me know if you can make Sara's in Petawawa in May or June. If I can tape into that video, I'd like to share it on Facebook.
