After viewing many wonderful blogs, by scrappers and stampers on the Internet, I decided to join in and start my own. This will be a place for me to share my scrapbooking obessesson with others and a place to combined all of the resources I have found & use reguarly. I am far from an "expert" scrapper and I'd love to have your thoughts and feedback on any of my layouts/projects. :) thanks for the visit! Deb aka "The Boyd Bunch" :)

Top Signs You Are a Scrapbooking Addict!

  • You're the only one at a social gathering yelling, "Just one more photo, folks; I don't have enough for a two-page spread!
  • Blue photo split backs can be found in unusual places--school lunch bags, briefcases, pants pockets, the dog's water bowl.
  • A regular sandwich is no longer acceptable--it must be cropped or cut with decorative edges.
  • You try to claim your album purchases as a medical expense because it's such good "therapy".
  • You buy a new pink swimsuit because it matches the pink photo mounting paper.
  • Your child is the only one in agriculture class who thinks "crop" is to "cut your photos."
  • You decide to give your child piano lessons so you'll be able to use the musical instrument stickers that are in the Big Pack.
  • You redecorate your family room to coordinate with your photo album covers.
  • Your three year old wants to know if her coloring book is "archival quality".
  • You're in a fender bender and your first thought is, "I wonder what die-cut shape will coordinate with this event?"
  • Scraps from your corner rounder cuttings can be found in unusual places: school lunch bags, briefcases, the laundry, the dog's water bowl.
  • Of course a scrapbook addict doesn't follow a 12 step program but a 12 x 12 step one.
