Mission Accomplished

I really don't know that scrapbooking is something that can be understood outside of the scrapbooking circle of people.....so when I say this, it won't impact anyone but myself, and maybe two other people, but....I just finished my 2007 scrapbook! Scrapbooking is definitely a labor of love. It takes forever. It cost a fortune. And if you don't do it, it's really hard to 'get.' By the end of EVERY scrapbook I do I'm slapping down stickers, cramming pictures on pages and covered in gluesticks. I've been working on 2007 since last spring (granted, I couldn't finish it then, but....I've been working on it on and off for a year). I am sooooo glad to say I'm done, and I just remember I had it on one of my to do list, and now I get to cross it off, which makes me EVEN happier! Every album I recommit to only doing my best job, but then a few hours in, and a few pages done, and nothing seems right, so I start plopping pictures down. The last few months I had a ton of fun with my newest addition (Christmas gift from Mom) to my tools-a Cricut that cuts out different styles of letters!
