if you know me - if you know how I shop - the "oh, look how pretty" mentality I have, i'm sure you're not at all surprised.
when I started scrapbooking, everything I had fit neatly into a little tupperware container that slid under my bed - a pack of cardstock, a few pairs of decorative edge scissors, rubber cement, a paper trimmer, and some pens - that was it.
little did I know it would all be downhill from there.
I made my first actual scrapbook page - eh, what I really mean is that I made something that resembles a scrapbook page by today's standards. no journaling, but hey... worse things have happened, right?
lots of crappy photos and absolutely no concept of design - I guess the only direction I had to go was up, right? lol...
I did, however, learn a few very valuable lessons along the way. one of the most important was don't use rubber cement for scrapbooking. when it dries, it gets brittle and everything falls apart. needless to say, none of my titles were where I remembered leaving them. lesson learned.
what was the most valuable lesson you learned early on in your scrapbooking? leave me a comment and tell me about it.
have a great night!
