Confessions of a Scrapbooking Failure

I stink at scrapbooking. I make a mess. I spend too much money. I start projects that I don't finish. I can never decide on which paper to use or which decorations to buy. Scrapbooking is a craft that I want to do, but I've failed everytime I try.

I think it's important for my kids to have a documented history. So, I started this blog as my way of "scapbooking" special times in the life of our family. I even found a website called Blurb that can turn my blog entries into a scrapbook if I wanted to spend the money (maybe one day when I stop blogging).

But, I still wanted to scrapbook. I discovered digital scrapbooking when I was online one day. Was this the answer? Nope. I read and read, but it just looked too complicated for me. So, I gave up on scrapbooking again.

Then, I came across How Fast They Grow. It's a scrapbooking site where you upload pictures, pick out a template (they are so much cuter than anything that I could design), drag and drop the pictures into the template, add some text, and you're done! When you order your pages, they are printed in the 12x12 typical scrapbook size and you just slide the page into your scrapbook. Hallelujah! I know I sound like a commercial, but I am so excited! I just designed a few pages last night and I was really pleased with the way they turned out. What do you think?
