I started scrapping about 5 years ago when our oldest dog passed away. I was so sad. I gathered pictures of her and started to do a book about her. The layouts were just aweful!! It was then when I took a series of classes at a local scrapbook store to learn the art of scrapping. I have not stopped since.
Part of scrapping is to have the right "stuff". Well, throughout the years, I got pretty good at buying and collecting stuff... I had stuff here and there and everywhere. So much that my dear, patient husband built me a casita in the backyard to house all my stuff. This is my sanctuary, my refuge.
