What does it mean?

What does Scrap booking mean to me? Well obviously, it's a hobby.  It's a way for me to be creative still.  I have loved art for as long as I can remember.  I can remember coloring, painting, and drawing at a young age. I went as far as I could in Art, all the way through college.  I could take drawing and painting classes all day. 

Putting together a scrapbook is like reading a big picture pop out book for adults.  In every page I turn, it tells a story.  How many times have you looked in your mom or grandma's picture albums and wondering "Where was this? Who is this? or "What were they doing?"  When you create a scrapbook there are pictures, memorabilia, and journaling.  The sky is the limit and who is tell you that you are doing it wrong.  

I want to preserve my memories and give something nice for family and friends to share.  A lot of love and time goes into scrapbooks.  I love to create and use my imagination.  And when I am feeling not so creative, there are layouts and other ideas from friends that I can use too.  

Scrap booking also is way for me to enjoy the company of other ladies.  There might be men out there that would like it too, but I have yet to scrap with any, not that they wouldn't be welcome. It gives me a way of escaping the hectic of day to day.  My husband gets this from his video games.  Others get it from sewing, golf, hunting, fishing, etc.  I get mine from crafting and scraping.

Welcome!  I have started this blog for the Scrapping club.  This is where we can discuss pages, ideas, and put up pictures of what we have accomplished.
