Ok, ok I’ll admit it.  I’ve got paper issues (well, ok, I’ll admit I’ve got more issues than just paper but…)  I can’t be the only person that will buy at least four pieces of a design that catches your eye in the Scrapbook Store!  Come on!  Admit your thought processes goes just like this!  "You need at least two to allow yourself the luxury of a two page layout, and then maybe bump that up to three just in case you need to mat some pictures in coordinating paper and what if you have enough pictures that you need to do a triple page layout, it’s all got to coordinate.  Oh but wait, you might as well get four pieces as you never know just what you’re going to do with this paper and I’m sure they won’t have this paper when you go back to the store and if they do, it might be a different dye lot and it might not exactly match and good grief at the price of gas you really don’t want to be driving all around town looking for that paper and you’d just be wasting precious scrapbooking time so, why not just get 4 or maybe even 5 to save yourself some time or money and besides, it’s just a couple of quarters that you would have spent on a Snickers Bar and your hips probably don’t need that anyway.  Oh but now I’m thinking of chocolate and…."

So here’s just a couple of pages from a past Thanksgiving that I finally scrapbooked and can you believe that I’ve actually used some paper that I purchased years ago!  Don’t know where, or when or even the manufacturer.

It was great to get a little bit of Scrapbooking down and has really put me in the mood to work on our Pages By Post Program.  Just a quick note, it’s basically Scrapbook pages by Mail that will debut in January along with the Stamps by Mail class.  Both are going to be great programs!   Email me at stampwithsarah@wi.rr.com for more information.  I will be putting info in the December newsletter as well.
