This is how is ALL started!
I never much thought of paper crafting...of any kind...until I went to my first Creative Memories party in 03'. My hubby was deployed to Iraq so I had plenty of free time(pre-kids of course...lol) in the evenings. A gf called me up and asked me if I wanted to go(her hubby was deployed also) with, so I obliged:) It only took one class and I was hooked!! Almost a year later I became a CM consultant and continued for a little over a year. It introduced me to a whole new world and I started looking at my photographs more often! I then moved to NY and decided I just wanted to scrap for myself and no longer wished to be a consultant...same day I deactivated a new friend(armywife2sam)showed me a StampinUP! catty...HOOKED again...lol As they say...the rest is history:) I finally had the "urge" to do some scrapping. I have not done this in soo long...well since, finding stamps...lol My scrapping adventures had been on the back burner since diving into my new hobby of stamping. I have to say though, it has been a nice break and I feel refreshed! Year 05' album is nearly completed...woohoo! I jump around alot when I scrap...like to break it up so I don't get bored. The journaling is saved for last, probably on a night when its quiet(no kids at my ankles...lol) and I can put pen to paper and it be thoughtful:) I finished approx. 10 pages in the last two days, so it'll probably be another few months before I go at it again...lol This is my oldest, Gracie...she is now a BIG 3!
