The Creative Process

It really just depends on the mood I am ....
Sometimes, I just get this idea for a layout and go with it...
Sometimes, I flip through magazines for inspiration ....
Sometimes I scraplift, but never totally maybe one or two elements from a layout caught my eye, color choice or a neat embellishment idea I always put my own spin on things.
Believe or not, sometimes I have dreamed a layout, and I hurry up wake up and sketch it out...

Sometimes it takes just a few minutes to create a layout, sometimes it may take a few days, whatever the case may be I love scrapbooking. I love getting new supplies, getting my orders in the mail, or getting a new magazine, or taking a trip to the LSS or Michaels. I am so at home with this hobby. Everything about the hobby brings me joy. Scrapbooking is not just a hobby, it has become a way of life.

Scrapbooking has been a great blessing for me. I have met so many wonderful people through scrapbooking. Bonds that will last a lifetime. It has made my family stronger, my kids know what I am trying to do and they love it. They love the idea that "Mom", is leaving a legacy behind that they will chersih and their children will cherish and so on....

It has truly brought out my CREATIVE SIDE, my INNER CHILD, and my SPIRIT. I really believe it has made a well rounded individual. I plan on scrapbooking forever...
