Like I need another hobby

Do any of you out there scrapbook? I always enjoy browsing through the scrapbook sections at stores and drooling over all the beautiful papers and stickers. I have a collection of scrapbook paper already that I bought just because they were pretty and knew I could find a way to use them. I have covered picture mats and clear plates with scrapbook paper (pictures below) and they turned out cute.

Now I have decided that I may try to use the paper in the way it was meant to be used and do a scrapbook. Hobby Lobby (I visit there frequently) had the albums, papers, and stickers 50% off so I bought some supplies and am going to try it. I want to start out by doing an album about my son and one about my husband and me. I have a friend who has been trying to get me to scrapbook. She does and really likes it. She has some really cute albums that I always want to look at when I'm at her house. Maybe I can get her to give me some pointers. I so don't need another hobby, especially one that involves shopping and spending money. But, I am going to try my hand at it and see if I like it. I'll let you know how it goes. Have a great weekend!

Hi Angie

I clicked over from Rhoda's to say hi and welcome to the land of blog.

I don't know if you've stopped by my blogs, so I will tell you how to find them.

I have two blogs. The first one on my profile is Snapshots from the Back Porch. That one is dedicated to my photography.

The second on the list is Back Porch Musings. I published my 200th post, Sunday. Lots to see there.

Clicking my name on this comment will take you to my profile page.

Have a wonderful weekend.
