Did you know you were part of a cult?

Seems that I've been hearing that scrapbooking is a cult of sorts by people who don't do it.  In fact, when I took my card class last week, there was a college student there who was observing us.  She was writing her paper on the culture of scrapbooking.  You could have knocked me over.  We had our own culture?  How cool is that?   The word cult doesn't sound so good though...  But then I thought, aren't I always telling people how fantastic it is?  How they should try it?  To come over and I'd help them get started and give them a few things?...  YIKES!  I do sound like a nutjob!  ROTFLMAO.  Okay my sisters in scrapbooking, here's my layout for today...

I just love these pictures of my husband and daughter.  You can really see how much he loves and adores Lara.  Just melts my heart looking at them :)  I used Scrap it with a Song (Once upon a dream) for my inspiration and a sketch from Sketches: Creatively Yours.  I also entered it in My partner in crafting crime anything goes challenge. 

Don't forget Saturday is National Scrapbooking Day.  There will be lots of website with giveaways, challenges, and sales all weekend long.  If anyone is interested in some sites that are having some challenges, etc., let me know and I'll post them tomorrow :)

This is a really special layout! I love the colors and those pictures are so great! :-) (I tutor two Chinese girls at the local high school--they make me wish I would have adopted when I realized I would only have one child naturally.)

TeenaBugg38, they are braided. I used 3 thin ribbons :))

Elise said...

Oh Denise! It's so wonderful to see such special pictures such as these! I love them! I love everything from the flowers, to the pictures, to the absolutely lovely dp's!!! What a gorgeous layout! Thank you for sharing these!

And yes ... I can see that crafters are a part of a "cult". lol. Don't like the word .. I agree with you, but I think we're such an AWESOME group of crafters who does this for "therapy" to make our hearts sing. :)

Big Hugs,

Debbi said...

Awesome layout! I LOVE the pics--how special! There's just somethin' about dads and their little girls (I have two dd's).
Thanks for commenting on my blog. :-)

Debbie said...

Love your layout! I especially like how you used the glitter letter in your title... and how it makes it look like the first page of a storybook.

Lol about the "cult". Guess we're all drinking the same kool-aid!! ha! ;-)

Marlene said...

Love the layout...and this is one "cult" I don't mind belonging to! :)

RiNNE said...

Buwahahahaha!!! Yes, we are a cult! NOT! Thanks for visiting my blog! Your lay-out is darling, I especially love the flowers at the bottom!

Gorgeous layout... it inspires me to get out that 12x12 and put away the cards for a while!!! Love to see the notes the student was taking... lol! Kinda how Jenny and I came up with the name "My Partner in Crafting Crime"...but as we always said their were worse addictions then crafting!!!! Thanks so much for joining us, Robin

Brilliant post, very funny and very true. At least it's a healthy addiction and a cult that is changing photos one scrapbook page at a time. :-D

Thanks for joining us at My Partner In Crafting Crime hope to see you in the next challenge too.

Absolutly beautiful layout. I love the great pictures, and paper you used. I especially love the flowers and the amazing stems. Fantastic job.

A cult naw don't think so but I am thrilled that as scrapbookers we have our very own special day. Not to many crafters can say that.

Jess said...
