Then, my friend showed up, and the corner rounder was passed around.
I. Was. Hooked. The page pictured here was the result of that first night. My first ever scrapbook page.
It was all downhill from there!
I decided, right then and there, that if scrapbooking was this easy, then I wanted to do it forever, with all my photos!
Seriously – that corner rounder made me all giddy.
I had so much fun, and had so many photos already, that I decided to become a consultant myself, and made enough money to fund my own habit for about two-and-a-half years. I am still scrap booking to this day, and I love it more every time I sit down to work on my books.
All because of that first, really simple, scrapbook page I put together.
My style has evolved quite a bit in the six years I have been doing this, but I think this page will always be my favorite.
This “hobby” has come to be one of my primary creative outlets. I have streamlined the process so much, that I find myself getting things done quicker than I ever thought possible. I am nowhere near caught up, but I am making good progress. I look forward to having this pastime the rest of my life. I really don’t care much whether I ever “finish.” That won’t really happen until I’m dead. Or Jesus comes back. Whichever comes first. I’m just enjoying myself immensely in the meantime.
Especially that corner rounder.
If you scrapbook, do you remember your first page? If you don’t scrapbook, what is your main creative outlet, and do you remember the first time you tried it?
The friend who
suckered me into introduced me to scrapbooking is no longer a consultant, but I found a wonderful one here in the Springs. Just in case you wanted to know.
