In my past life, I was a Financial Manager working for the US Government. Since I wore my left brain out, today I’m a retired (yay) grandmother of 5 and get to do what I want to do which is mostly right brain, creative endeavors. Must keep balanced ya know. LOL
I’ve always had a love of photography and still remember having one of those old Brownie cameras and using flash cubes. I’m sure some of you have NO idea what those are. LOL. I’m certainly not a professional but can take a decent photo. Of course, I have many interests that include travel and hiking so I also have MANY photos.
I guess I’ve always been a collector of memorabilia as well. Now some would call this crazy but I like to look back and remember the good, the bad and sometimes even the ugly. Phew, did we really wear our hair like that??? These things are what made me the person I am today though. I (actually still) have a book I made during high school with all the ribbons, bows, dried flowers and even a piece of our house torn off as I was pulling out of the driveway on my 18th birthday. I also kept photo albums capturing all those dances, parties and prom. The next logical step would be to combine them.
This was a daunting task as I thought of it before scrapbooking became popular or come to think of it — before “scrapbooking” was a word! LOL. Phew, now I feel really old…. LOL. Today it’s a lot easier to find people who share my love. There are those that look at my scrapbooks and think “I can never do that”. Well, you can and I’m here to show you how. I can tell you how to scrapbook quickly and easily and for those of you that want to get fancy, I’ll go into that as well. Please feel free to ask questions if you need help. Obviously I’ve been doing this a while and would love to share it with you.
I hope you find the information helpful and inspiring enough to create your own book to look at for many years to come.
