Scrapbooking is great...

I started scrapbooking when I was pregnant with Tasmyn. Tonight before I put her to bed we went thru her first album, from pregnancy until when she was six months old. I haven't looked at this album in YEARS. It was so much fun. I loved looking at the photos with her, reminiscing about how little and how chubby she was, about how I loved so many of her clothes, talking about family and friends. I didn't journal much back then, and it makes me realise how important journalling is. I make a point of journalling on almost all my layouts now. OK, so..... drumroll please.... here are a few of my first layouts, just for fun. :)I love scrapbooking SO much. I love taking photos, I love creating something beautiful, I love recording my thoughts and memories (journalling is SO important!), I love sharing my love of scrapbooking with my sisters and parents and friends, I love working on Design Teams, I love seeing my work in print, I love scrapbooking products, I love the friends I've made thru scrapping. I'm so thankful to have this wonderful hobby, without which there would be a huge void in my life!

I went to a fundraising crop yesterday with Lea and had such a lovely day. And on top of having a lovely day with Lea, meeting some lovely new people and winning a raffle, I also got a few layouts done! I will share them next post. :)

Thanks for stopping by my lil ole blog! Please leave me a message to say hi!!!!!

I think its wonderful that you have been scrapping since before she was born that is such an amazing record of memories for her AND for you since we all know it passes by in a blur.

Hope you had the heater on last night otherwise I fear you are frozen in bed this morning - love the Canberra winter :)

Your early pages are really nice... Some of my early pages are really bad!! I did giggle at your Christmas sticker title though :-) I remember your ultrasound page. I really like that one.
