Photos and scrapbooking

I spent most of the evening working on putting together a scrapbook/photo album. You guys know how many pictures I take (and I only post a handful of each event) and I wanted to print them out and have actual pictures instead of files on my laptop. So, I bought a scrapbooking photo album from the nearest AC Moore, and something called "mat stack," which are colored photos mats for behind my 4 x 6 pictures. I refuse to let myself go hardcore into scrapbooking, it's too expensive and although the little cutouts and items are cute, I can't bring myself to use them for each and every picture page. However, I will buy a few loose paper flowers (a few packets I mean) that I have bought and used for other projects, and randomly scatter them throughout the backgrounds of some of the pages. I might also spring and get like, a birthday cake for my birthday pictures and like, a sandcastle or something for the beach pictures. But that is where I draw the line...

So, I got up to my 21st birthday, which was in September. I started off with some events from May, so accomplishing the summer was a major task in itself since that's when most of my pictures were from. I still have all of cheerleading football season to do. There are a whooooooole lot of them.

I just realized that I have been wearing my new purple Burberry scarf all day. As in, did not take it off once. Oops.

Work tomorrow. I'm broke from buying Christmas gifts, so work is a blessing to me at the moment. Goodnight xoxo

Scrapbooking is definitely expensive and addicting. But mat stacks are the best things ever. Before, I NEVER used mats, but now I use them all the time because I don't have to do any more work. I love them, I think they can really make certain pictures stand out.
