My daughter had been scrapping for a few years and kept trying to talk me into scrapping with her. I kept saying I wasn't creative and couldn't do it. One summer she convinced me to go with her to a scrap retreat for 3 days. We had just taken a trip to NYC that December so I decided to scrap that. I bought an album and printed my pictures. She said I could use her supplies. She bought me a xyron and a package of punch out letters. As a teacher, I automatically did research on 'how' I should scrap. I printed out some pagemaps, read directions, and went to the retreat. I got the first two pieces of cardstock out, got out a couple of pictures, looked at them, and said, "Just what I thought, I have no idea what to do!" I did jump in though and with the help of my daughter and other ladies at the crop I got all of my pages done for my album. I must say I am still pretty pleased with those pages. And so began a hobby, passion, and joy called scrapbooking for me.
How about you?
