I think a lot about scrapbooking. Are you surprised? I didn't think so :-).
It is something that I enjoy. It is something that brings me happiness. I love to take photos...lots of photos! I like to record the thoughts and memories that accompany those photos. Scrapbooking has been become the perfect outlet for all of those things. I love it when my boys pull the albums out and look through them. There are lots of "I remember that" and "that was fun"!

I am often asked how I find the time to scrapbook. People often comment that they are too busy to scrapbook. I can guarantee you that I am kind of busy too. I just make a point to do the things I enjoy, even if it means staying up late. I have been busy creating the weekly KIT OF THE WEEK for Green Tangerines. I have seen, first hand how my albums are filling up just by completing a layout a week. The photos on the Halloween layout(see below)were from the year 2000...10 years old. I just got around to scrapping them :-). I figure as long as I am taking the mass amounts of photos that I do on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis...I will never be caught up :-). I enjoy the process and that is all that matters.

If you are looking for a place to start, check out Green Tangerines. The kits from Green Tangerines come with a color photo of the weeks layout and all of the product needed to create that layouts. On top of the weekly kits, we are getting ready to launch the yearly calendar pages. Some type of thing...kits ready to go. All you have to do is add your photos.

Here are a few of the most recent Kit of the Weeks.

Happy Scrapbooking!
