Scrappin' My World!

My Very First Card!

A horrible excuse, but it is the one that is accurate.  I bought everything for my brother’s b-day celebration, but forgot to get him a card, and no time to go back and get one.  So I had a little time on my hands at work and thought I would see what kind of b-day card I could make out the items in my office.  I am a Manager of Executive Administration by day and Scrappin’ Queen by night. :) 

I had just emptied one of those boxes of individual creamers so I took the dispenser part out.  I took the cardboard packaging from a new set of highlighters I had just bought, some round stickers for medical file identification, paper hole repair circles, and a printer.  Oh, I also found some glitter in the bottom of an old X-mas card box with X-mas cards still in them that the glitter had shaken loose from.  I had yellow colored paper, which just happens to be my brothers favorite color.  Add a little stick glue and you have a b-day card.  I put together a few meaningful lines and you have a b-day card that was not only thoughtful, but in my opinion amazingly creative!

I have come across some sayings that you can’t help but laugh at, agree with, or know it describes you to a tea.  Here are a couple I have come across recently.

A good friend shops with you for scrapbook supplies, a true friend helps you hide your stash when you get home!

“There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never
did, who won’t anymore… and who always will.
So, don’t worry about people from your past, there’s a reason why they
didn’t make it to your future.” – Adam Lindsay Gordon

“Be yourself, everyone else is taken”

“I worry that when I die my husband will sell my scrapbooking stuff for what I told him I paid for it”


Welcome to my little corner of the world.  Nothing too fancy, but I am hoping useful.

No expertise claimed here, but I can hold my own.  Information to be shared for sure.  Have anything you think could assist the rest of us die hard, money saving, fun loving scrapbookers…bring it on!
