Wanted to say thank you!

Postby motherofjnbc » Fri Jul 13, 2018 8:50 pm

Hello! I used to be a member on this board. Want to say it’s been at least 10 years since I have posted. I have not scrapped in about the same amount of time. Life and circumstances got in the way. Recently My daughter asked me to make her childhood friend a scrapbook for a baby shower gift. I collected supplies for years, so I pulled out my baby girl supplies and was stuck. I needed inspiration. I got on the internet and remembered the gallery here. Started looking around and found my inspiration. I have to say, not too much has changed in the scrapbooking world. Thank goodness, I tend to want to try and buy all the “new” stuff.  I am in the process of organizing my craft room and going through my supplies.  Hoping by doing so I will be inspired to scrap again. Unfortunately I have had to toss quite a few things. Pens dry up, self adhesive embellishments do not stick anymore, and the most disappointing, clear stamps really get stuck on the  acetate they came on. It’s been fun looking through everything and discovering what I forgot I had. Seriously, it’s been years! 
So thank you all for the inspiration, there are a lot of talented people here.

Hi! Glad you're getting back to scrapping! Another way to get inspired is to check out the monthly challenges.

Thanks for warm welcome! I appreciate it. Things on the board have calmed down quite a bit. There was too much drama before, part of the reason I stopped posting. Very positive place now. Everyone encourages one another. I like that! 
I was able to finish the book. Turned out cute. Unfortunately I only have an iPad. Our computer is not working. I’m not as tech savvy as I used to be, and to tell you the truth, I don’t know if I could figure out how to post to gallery. 
I do look at the challenges and they do intrigue me. It helps to have guide lines to go by, specially after being away from it for so long. I did find my “ in progress book”. I had put photos, papers and embellishments in page protectors in a scrapbook.  I am going to start with those.

One thing about being on this board, at least now, is that you are always welcomed back and you feel like you never left.
