I am so excited that I found this website. It is beautiful, fun, well put together and I have been at this website for 6 hours last night and quit around 4 or 5 and back again today. I am amazed at the growth of scrapbooking. Like others have said I did scrapbooking when it was one dimension and did not have any of the embellishments or kits I see now. I am thankful I leaed of this site from my beginning on Scrapbook.com. I am a retired teacher and widow and found it very hard to scrapbook after my hubby passed. I scrapbooked for my class but after I retired I set it aside. These kits are so beautiful but I am afraid I will buy the kits and not do anything with them. I use to knit and have bags of beautiful yard because I just liked to look at it. I think I am feeling the same way with the paper and embellishments and the kits. I am almost done setting up a craft room and have a place for everything. I just go in there and look at everything. I guess the next step will be to try to do something. I get so manic looking at the beautiful pages in the gallery I don't seem to ever get started, I think I am little afraid. Sorry for the long introduction but it is a bad habit. I look forward to sharing with many of you and new friendships.!amazedMarch 24, 2011 at 10:56 pm #98414
OMgosh….you articulated my sentiments exactly when I found SD. To get started, and my SD sisters will back me up on this, sign up for a challenge. Sign up for Peggy's April Round Robin. Peggy explains everything you need to know on this subject in great detail. You won't be disappointed and all you have to do is lift the previous scrapper's layout and put your own touch to it. Looking forward to seeing you in April's Round Robin.March 24, 2011 at 11:47 pm #98415March 24, 2011 at 11:51 pm #98416
