New at scrapbooking


An attempt to begin scrapbooking, I started with the new sketch from ODBD and used the Brocade background stamp. This is a picture of my son from about four years ago with his robot valentine mailbox from school. I just wanted to pick a picture to try out the 8" x 8" page size and so on. Random scrapper that I am, I know I should get everything in chronological order first but I probably would never get it all done that way :) I have done a couple of pages in my life and am not cozy with it all yet but hope to learn as I go. It's just a bigger card, right?

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you call this an attempt! This is BEAUTIFUL! Is this your first scrapbook page? WOW! And love the 8x8 size. I use the same size for my pages. The background stamp was perfect for this, and such a wonderful, wonderful page! Thank you for playing along with our new ODBD scrapbook challenge! I am so excited to have you joining us with this great creation! Blessings,

Beautiful scrapbook page!! I was an avid scrapbooker until stamping took over my life! I am going to do more this year and even posted a page on my blog a week or so ago. Chronological order??? No way!! Just scrap what you like. It is more fun!!

Oh I do love your page Joanne! I think trying to get everything chronological is what was keeping me from getting going too.... random is better!!! Then we can get a few done here and there! Your page looks great! Thanks for sharing it with ODBD!!!
