Your site is the greatest!
What do I like most about your site, hum where do I start. I just love your layout section, wow as a new scrapbooker, being on a very tight income, it has been a very resource for me to find layouts to use in the albums that I am doing.
I have three children ranging in age of 29, 18 and 13. I just lost my job recently because of an injure and cannot work any more, so I thought this would be a good time to devote to making scrapbooks for each of them. Since I don't have much money I am a very frugal scrapbooker, and can not afford all the great books that are out there for helping a newbe in how to make layouts, and color schemes and your layout section has became one of my best friends.
I am also new to the computer also, and my hubby found your site for me and I come here all the time now. I am a crafter, but nothing like this, and your site has given me many helpful ideas. I also like you poem place and the topics list.
They also have been a great help. I have enjoyed your scrapbook contest this time also, boy I can't believe all the things that you offer in your shopping area, wow I just didn't know how many items you offered. I have been there a couple of times, but nothing like this time. I have a list that goes on forever that I want to buy, I am making a wish list so to say for special holidays that maybe I can come back and buy from. Where I live we don't have any scrapbooking stores at all, I have to travel at least 2 hours to get to one of them, and then my hubby has to take me because I don't like to drive since my injure, so I don't get to go there very often because of this and lack of money.
I can at least at your site, sit in the comfort of my own home, and shop and shop for hours looking at all the new and old supplies that you have. I realize that this will not win for the scrapbook essay contest, but I just wanted to let you know how much I have came to rely on your site for help and ideas. I hopefully will be able to get some money saved to buy some supplies real soon, and this would be the place I would come to do so. I also have stole some ideas from your shop area that I have tried to make buy looking at them and drawing my own, but it would be much nicer when I can get some money and come back and buy lots of stuff to do my scrapbooking.
I am right now using mostly construction paper to do my scrapbooking with, and I am saving my money to buy some of your paper I have seen tonight that is in your clearance isle so that I can add some color to my scrapbooks. I am sure that you get thousands of letters like this telling you a sob story, and I don't blame you for not believing me, but I just wanted to tell you how much your site means to me and my family.
