December 26 - Friends Page


My New Year's Resolution (OK, one of them!) is to KEEP THIS BLOG UPDATED! And look - I'm even starting early! :)

If you've been following this blog or even just checking it every once in a while you know that during the past year I've kind of shifted from scrapbooking to cards. Cards were a great distraction for a while (quick & easy) but my heart really does belong to scrapbooking.
I'm a storyteller and the best way for me to tell a story is through a scrapbook page. Even if I don't have a lot of words I love letting the photos tell the story. And during the past few weeks it has been KILLING me not to go up to my little room and whip out a few pages. I've taken some fun pictures the past year that I've done basically nothing with yet so I have a lot of scrapbooking ammo for the next few months while I work on getting caught up. So from this point on I'll be having many more scrapbooking pages mixed in with the card ideas I post.

Tonight after I got all of the Christmas toys cleaned up and put away I finally had a chance to hole up in my room for a few hours and get back into the swing of the scrapbooking thing and BOY DID IT FEEL GOOD! I've really missed it so much! Of course it also helped that I had a bunch of cool new supplies to play with too. Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Mini Catalog that comes out on January 5th has so many cute new things in it that will help you make the coolest scrapbook pages and cards. Almost everything on this scrapbook page is from the new Occasions Mini Catalog - if you want a copy be sure to let me know. (And there are a few Sale-A-Bration items thrown in too - if you're thinking "what on earth is Sale-A-Bration?" it's a promotion with exclusive products and stamp sets that you can earn for FREE with every $50 order! Just contact me with any questions!) Until tomorrow...

Well, as an avid scrapper, I am certainly always happy to see lovely pages! I brought this stamp set with me on vacation so I could play with it, too!! Although, I am quick to get easily distracted by the quick and easy cards, too! I love your page and what you have done with it!
