22 days of gratitude

Today I am thankful for scrapbooking! (I will give thanks to Kristina Hill for the idea of today's post.)

It's a hobby of mine that I love to do...for myself and for my friends/family.
I don't really remember if anyone in particular got me into scrapbooking. I just love working with paper and photos. I am not a professional photographer, although I love taking pictures!

I would love to learn more about photography, and how to manipulate my Canon Rebel to achieve photograph greatness! LOL! But time and money have put a damper on that :(

Scrapbooking to me is very cathartic. I pour out my heart and soul into my pages. It may take a few hours, or a few days, to complete one page. I love the memories and feelings it brings to mind when I am scrappin' family photos. It's a way to express myself, and keep my memories alive!

One day, I hope to have a proper crafting area so I can display all my wares and see what I have at a glance, instead of rummaging through my stash for something "I know I have, but cannot seem to find!"

Here are just a few of my pages (not in any particular order)...
