Scrapbooking is HARD!!!
For lots of reasons! First of all, I'm slow. It takes me a day or two to choose a picture. Then it takes me another day or two to choose my paper. As the mother of three sons, I think I'd almost rather die than make even one more primary colored layout! Then, when I've finally made my decisions, I sit there staring at this face, this beautiful face with the sweetest expression in the whole wide world, and I wonder, "Now what?" How can I, with paper, scissors and ink possibly do this child justice? Is there any way on earth I can show the depth of my feelings for this child of mine? I don't think I can, but at least I made a page!
