I am so excited! I just got 11 of my 15 scrapbooks embossed with dates on their spines This is something I’ve wanted to do…..since I started scrapbooking!
Looking at my bookshelf, I realized that I have completed 11 family albums and 1 album that shows our vacation time with Bob’s side of the family. That’s a lot! The family albums I now have titled and they look great. I didn’t know how to title the vacation one, so it will have to wait. I also have 1 album that was completed for me (my wedding album – Thanks Aunt Katie!), 1 album that is “in progress” because I’m not sure how to finish it (currently holds our Cancun, Mexico pictures from 2003. Maybe a beach album?), and 1 album that I gave up on and hope to finish some day (Bobby’s school album).
This is quite the accomplishment, if I do say so myself! I remember when I got started scrapbooking. My friend Kate invited me to this scrapbook “party”. I remember telling Bob “I’m just going to be nice. I am SO not creative. I’m sure this won’t interest me at all!” Famous last words, as it has been about 9 years and I’m still scrapbooking like crazy. I have made albums for friends and family members. I did a stint as a scrapbook product consultant and had my “own business” for awhile. And, of course, I will be enjoying my 8th annual scrapbook retreat this coming March with My BFF’s!
Take a look at my beautiful album spines. I just love them! I will be starting my 12th family album this weekend at my friend and CM Consultant Shelley’s event, and I’m hoping to possibly do some smaller albums as Christmas gifts.
