good question

What got me into it was when I was about 13 I was the preferred babysitter for this group of ladies who were great at it. The pages were always so creative and beautiful. They inspired me to make my memories into something creative...

My first project was a scrapbook of my friends. It didn't turn our great but I loved doing it.

I got into cardmaking before scrapbooking, and the lady who introduced me to cards also scrapped. So I decided to scrapbook our wedding album, and with a few tips from her to get me started, I was on my way. I DID finish that album, but after that have started several projects that are still ongoing. Maybe one of these days, I'll get all caught up . . .

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

My mom hosted a Creative Memories party. It was shortly after I graduated from HS and I chose to scrap my pics from Dance Camp the summer before.

In HS, I made this huge collage & framed it, it's pictures of friends & I at school, cheerleading comps, etc. I added stickers, cut words out of magazines, that kind of thing. I still have it too!!

It was my wedding album from my first marriage. I was looking in the craft section of Walmart one day and happened across the scrapbooking section they had then. It looked like fun and was different from traditional photo albums and I have been hooked ever since. Although I didn't get full into it until '06 when I got pregnant with Sam.
