Meme Challenge 2-6-06

In all the time you have been scrapbooking, what does this hobby do for you? Emotionally? Physically? Creatively? How have you evolved as a scrapbooker? as a person? Have there been any dramatic changes in your life due to scrapbooking? Share your life here. Feel free to write about it like this: If 'scrapbooking' was a person, what would you say to him/her to thank them for all they've done for you/your family/your life?

I love scrapbooking in every aspect. Scrapbooking has changed me in so many ways. I think I have a deeper appereciation for family history, and the importance of documenting my life. I live and breathe scrapbooking. I love how I feel when I get some of my scrap goodies in the mail, that is what I would call a good mail day....I love going to Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Archivers, Joanns, or my LSS . When I get home I spread all my goodies over the bed and just gaze at them for hours. Then immediately I start making plans for layouts, and rush through whatever to get back to scrapping. I feel my appreciation for family has grown since I started scrapbooking.

I also feel like scrapbooking has bought back my youth. I feel like a child in a candy store, everytime I get some new goodies. I have to have everything! Just like a kid. Have even stuck my bottom lip out, when I can't get what i wanted...LOL I remember when I was a young girl, I used to collect stickers and spend hours arranging them in my various sticker albums, and how I used to look at my albums for hours...I am the same way when I create a new layout. It brings me so much joy!

Scrapbooking has also allowed me to tap into my creative side. I have incorporated scrapbooking into everything I do. Not only do I feel the need to alter everything, but also finding layout ideas from magazines, billboards, clothing logos., etc.

I have come along way since my first layout. I think I am pretty darned good. Not only have I become a strong scrapper, but a better photographer.

I have met so many amazing people through scrapbooking. Each day I continue to meet more and more amazing people, who share this wonderful hobby! I can't imagine what my life would be like if I did not find scrapbooking. It has truly changed my life!
