Top 10 Signs of a Scrapbook Addict

  • You're the only one at a social gathering yelling, "Just one more photo, folks; I don't have enough for a two-page spread!
  • A regular sandwich is no longer acceptable--it must be cropped or cut with decorative edges.
  • You try to claim your album purchases as a medical expense because it's such good "therapy".
  • Your child is the only one in agriculture class who thinks "crop" is to "cut your photos."
  • You decide to give your child piano lessons so you'll be able to use the musical instrument stickers that are in the Big Pack.
  • You redecorate your family room to coordinate with your photo album covers.
  • Your three year old wants to know if her coloring book is "archival quality".
  • Scraps from your corner rounder cuttings can be found in unusual places: school lunch bags, briefcases, the laundry, the dog's water bowl.
  • Of course a scrapbook addict doesn't follow a 12 step program but a 12 x 12 step one.

Calendar page ~ January 2008

I'll be adding my calendar pages throughout the year, this is my January page. Photos are from last year, note the absence of snow! We can't say that this year. I remember the girls wanting to make a snowman and this was one of the first snow fall, a little wet but nevertheless good enough to make not one but two small snowman.

This calendar was made using an Excel calendar template with some modifications to fit a 8-1/2" x 11" format. I used the "Let's Get Together" paper level 2 from CTMH. Since my scraproom is painted in those colours it matches perfectly. It was fun making something for me.

Stamp sets used:

Tiny Typewriter Alpha ~ for "2008"
Classic Caps ~ for "January"
