An Update on my Scrapbooking... did you know I scrapbook?

Did I mention that I'm a scrapbooker?

Well, I don't know if I can say that, seeing as I have not created a scrapbooking page in at least six months. But I've got a ton of pictures printed, tons of paper and embellishments, plus a room in the new townhouse that I call my "craft room" which houses all of my beloved Hobby Lobby finds plus a television, which gets the most use as of late.

In any case, Husband found me a great way to organize my crafting supplies and after we cleared out the Christmas tree and all the associated boxes from the room, I decided it was high time to continue my honeymoon scrapbook.

Yes, I realize that this April will mark our third anniversary and that this should have been done MUCH earlier, but honestly, we've been busy! And... I needed inspiration... and a place to set up... and the right paper... OK, I really don't have an excuse. My 101 in 1001 list has pushed me to start up again!

Let's just show you the pictures of what I've done so far... please don't laugh!

So we went to Paris and this was us on the outbound flight.

This was the statue of Moliere near our hotel.
Our Hotel de Moliere was where the playwright held his rehearsals in the 18th century. That's basically what the journal entry says.

We had a great view!

We were near the Opera and the Lourve.

Paris has such amazing buildings.

We had to take a picture of the St Michael statue - after Husband's namesake.

The must-have photo at the Eiffel Tower. The photo on the left is from the second observation deck.

And my latest creation...
This was our trip to Notre Dame... I absolutely LOVE the picture of the gargoyle we got from the top observation level. The quote says "This world is but a canvas to our imagination."

Any thoughts or suggestions? I'm just getting started with the whole scrapbooking thing and I don't want to start on my wedding book until I've got some practice under my belt!


  1. You did such a great job on the scrapbook pages! They are so colorful and look great :)

  2. I'm on a scrapbooking kick now, but I also get "stuck"! I actually have a back room that houses most of my stuff. I don't usually have a table out, but I'm working on stuff now so it's sitting out. I like your honeymoon book so far! I think it's best to do simple and add what you can. The thing I struggle with is the journaling part. I can get the pictures in, but writing isn't as easy! I'm still working on my wedding one, even though it was only less than 2 years ago. It's really simple, which I like. If I do too much on a page I'll never finish!

  3. You seem like a pro already - very impressive!

  4. Beautiful scrapbooking!

    Did you check out Moliere's grave in Paris? He's buried in one of the big cimetieres there and I brought him a rose as a tribute to his greatness! ;)

    I want to go back to Paris!

  5. These are wonderful! I wish I had the creativity to do anything remotely as wonderful as this.
