I finally created a blog!!!!

I have been wanting to create a blog for some time and have been asked a few times to create a blog, but I've been quite intimidated and unsure of what to do. So it may take me a while to get this sorted out. Anyway, the reason for the blog is that I am always creating scrapbook pages, home decor projects or just whatever that my friends say they wish they could have pictures of to copy or get ideas from. So I decided that it would be nice to have one place to share my creations or whatever I'm into at the time.

First of all I want to introduce myself and my family that will be most of my posting material. I have been scrapbooking the old fashioned way since I was 8 years old and then discovered archival scrapbooking as an adult in 1998 which really hooked me. I've been passionate about scrapbooking ever since. In 2008 I discovered digital scrapbooking which boosted my hobby up to the next level. Today I scrapbook about 75% digitally and 25% tradititionally. I have over 50 completed 12x12 albums and lots of mini albums. I love to take online classes and make projects.

Some of my scrapper idols include Stacy Julian. I love her enthusiasm and quest to spread happiness. I practice her Library of Memories system for scrapbooking. I take classes from her site www.bigpicturescrapbooking.com . I also love Ali Edwards. I love to take on her challenges like "A Week in the Life" and "Twenty-Five Days of Christmas". She has great ideas and links on her blog, www.aliedwards.com.

I am currently obsessed with shopping for digital scrapbooking supplies. My favorite sites right now include Scrap Matters, Little Dreamers Designs, Sweet Shoppe Designs, and Designer Digitals. My favorite designer right now is Krista Sahlin. I love everything she creates!...And I want it ALL!

Here are my two precious boys who are the main subjects of my scrapbooking.
