Blogger thoughts...

So one of my favorite scrapbook sites, The School of Scrap (www.theschoolofscrap.com) sometimes posts blog challenges for journaling. Today's was to tell about your family and what inspires me to scrap. Well that's an easy one.

I have a family of NINE, yes, I did say nine. They are all so unique and such awesome individuals. From my wonderful and loving husband, all the way down to my precious, but spoiled baby girl. I don't usually "pose" them unless it's for a holiday or family shot, but I get some great pictures of them from time to time. I started scrapbooking right before my now six year old was born. My sister in laws gave me a book with a few pages already completed, and it just grew from that. Now all of my children have books, more than one. I also have one for our family in general. I guess what I enjoy the most, other than the creative process itself, is seeing my kids (especially my youngest 3) drag around their big books and look at them. I love that when I'm gone someday (hopefully years from now) they can look at these and remember how much I loved them, and share that with their kids.

My scrapbooking led way to my stamping... and I love using it in my scrapbooks now. I also make lot's of cards, because although I love emails, there is nothing like a handwritten card. There is just something fun about getting something in the mail!

Have a great day and SCRAP or STAMP!
