Being Introduced to Scrapbooking...

I'm excited because today because I'm going to be introduced to a new creative outlet. I have a friend who is very creative and we have a lot in common. We both love to read, write, and she's a consultant for Creative Memories, which is a scrapbooking company. So I'm heading over to her house to see her scrapbooks and what she's got to sell. She's also having a scrap day next Saturday where you can bring your stuff and work on it, and of course you can buy new scrapbooking supplies to use. But from what I understand many tools will be provided to use at this Scrapfest. So I'm gearing up to get my scrap on! Now that I have a new camera, lots of new pictures, lots of old pictures, and a photo printer, I can really dig in and start my own scrapbooks!

A couple of possible projects come to mind. One in particular is to scrapbook my trip to France. I have lots of pictures in an album that I don't really care for. So why not make a new travel scrapbook? This may inspire me to get out of the country again and take another wonderful trip!

More to come on what I discover and what I decide to take on as a project! :)

Here's a picture I took of the Eiffel Tower from ontop of the Arc de Triomphe, a beautiful site!
Happy Scrapping!

Hope you had fun. I think the committment is the biggest thing! More than a particular format or set of rules. I found "Watercolor Journeys" at my local used book store... I'd like to go to France and draw and paint and draw and paint AND collect souveniers-- might have two types of memory keepers.

A scrapbooker! That will keep you busy--hehe! K&Krafts also has a scrapbook club (once month or so?)and you can use their equpment and all the cutters and things. I don't know the particulars--not being a scrapper. :) You can use a lot of the same things as the cardmakers use, too. You could even have a Kalli scrapbook--ha!
