I don't come from the chronological group of scrapbookers I scrap a photo just because I like it. I can scrap the same photo twice in a month
or some photos I love so much I wait until I really 'have my scrap on', or I know I am taking a class that will do them justice, because I want to make a page I really love with it on.
Class thaught by the very talanted Denise Holmes at the recent ATDML retreat.
I scrap because looking at and working with photos of Gracia makes me feel closer to her when she is far away.
I scrap with friends because it feels good to do something you love in with people who are close to you.
If I am honest I couldn't perceive a time when I wouldn't scrap in some form or other I loved the immediacy of digi scrapping when I dabbled in it
and am now dipping my toe in the pool of mixed media.
As long as it gives me pleasure I will continue, I would like to say it doesn't matter what other people think of my work but that wouldn't be true or I wouldn't put it on my blog or be part of a design team or teach scrap classes but if I like it then that's all that matters!
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. Blog friends who make you think.
2. That I have the opportunity to scrap, almost whenever I choose to
3. My many, many craft related friends.
