My New Obsession

I think it is safe to say that scrapbooking is my longest-lasting obsession. Even though I was first exposed to it years ago, I never thought I would want to do it because of the time involved. Over the course of the year 2000 I was gradually attracted more and more to it, and decided to do an album of our Disney vacations. It has sprouted from there and now I have done so many different albums. I have also become a much better planner and faster scrapper, which has enabled me to do over 160 pages in my albums while also participating in swaps for scrapbooking items and recipe pages. It is a lot of fun.

I am sharing my layouts below. I have categorized them in several different ways. The main ways are by album that they are in (the listings on the top row). If you look through those albums, the rest of the categories will have pages that you've already seen.

A YELLOW band around a page means that the page is new to the site. This hasn't been updated in quite some time, but I'm hoping to update it soon.
