Just think about the price of gas when you think about shipping costs.....Today it is at $3.65 per gallon, unless you get great mpg, to go 50 miles 1 way = 100 miles round trip, the amount of time it takes to drive 100+ miles, lunch out, I think you need to rethink shipping costs! Too funny! Really, Recollections albums are fairly decent, you get to support Scrapbooks.com and they have been so supportive of their customers with so much education and tools they create and share with us. Usually you will find all you need online, you will stay off the streets and avoid overspending on things that you obviously have not researched. That last thought was more for me than anyone else. Enjoy all that you do and don't get too serious cuz then it isn't fun any more.
