My Favorite Scrapping Moment

Right now, this is my favorite scrapbooking moment: Lisa Bearnson from Creating Keepsakes magazine (among other endeavors she's involved in) chose MY layout as a winner last month. She happened to visit a local scrapbooking store, Timeless Treasures, and cropped with some lucky scrappers. There was a page layout contest and I was one of the selected winners who got to have lunch with her. Plus, she also sent out her new mega chipboard kit to the winners! (By the way, if you happen to ever see this, thank you, Lisa - I tried to find an email or mailing address for you to send you a thank you note, but couldn't find one. Understandable, as I'm sure you prefer to enjoy your privacy when you can get it!)

Well, I think I'll have about three viewers of this entry in the next few days. One will probably be my scrappiest friend, Nan, and the other two will be relatives - just not sure which ones!

My family blog has been a big hit with family friends and it has 1) saved me time and postage trying to send pictures to everyone and 2) relieved the guilt I feel when I don't get the promised pictures of the boys to those who ask.

So, now that I'm running around like a crazy lady, doing all sorts of scrappy stuff, I thought I should start a blog about it. Not that I expect anyone to really care (except for Nan and the relatives, of course) but I'm hoping it will give me a place to share my ideas and excitement for the hobby with other scrapbook enthusiasts!

So, welcome, and thank you for stopping by!
