I feel the need to give you a little history of me. I love to create cards and mini albums but I had a mental block with scrapbooking I could not get rid of. I wanted to scrapbook the numerous photos I have at home but I always felt like I would do it wrong. I was afraid of someone pointing out everything that I shouldn’t do on a layout.
