Scappin' for Love!

By:Danae Troutman

Scrapbooking is wonderful to me because it lets me be very creative. I can unleash all of my energies, positive or negative. I am certainly a scrapbook supply buyer with layouts all in my mind. I can spot a diecut from thirty paces!
Scrapbooking is important to me in many ways. My children will know where they have been and I can look back and remember! They do grow very fast. I enjoy scrapbooking my very own young life and look back and the memories I have there. It's fabulous for my husband and children to look at these photos and ask me what I was doing then or what was I thinking wearing my hair that way!

Scrapbooking has changed my life financially because I spend, spend, spend! My husband is very supportive of my scrapbooking "addiction." He gets a kick watching me relax and create.

Scrapbooking has also changed my life because I joined a group of gals on the internet. It is called Kels Secret pal Circle. I've never met any of them but is a wonderful group of people that support and love one another. We have
"rounds" where we take two months and get assigned a new secret pal. We try to figure out who they are by giving clues. We send scrapbooking packages to each other for two months. It is so much fun getting packages from your pal! You never know what's going to be in it! On the third month, we have a switcheroo. That is where you send to the person who sent to youfor two months.

Like I said, we've neber met but we love each other. We are finally going to meet up this Spring. Some of us are meeting in Florida and some are meeting in California. This is very exciting! Our fearless leader Kelly has even created us a web-site. Are we high falooting or what?

So, there's my story and I'm sticking to it!
