Seven Things I Have Noticed Lately
1- My most cherished scrapbook pages have tons of journaling and a great illustrative photo. Embellishments are nice but secondary.
2- I will never be able to keep all my laundry done and in it’s place at once. Somebody is always messing something up.
3- Whenever I read certain passages of the Bible, I “hear it” being read in my father’s voice. (My father became a minister when I was 6.)
4- Boys and girls are very different. And that never changes.
5- There’s nothing wrong with scrap-lifting.
6- It’s easier to look like you are organized than to actually be organized.
7- Tamika Tyler was robbed.

Sarah - I'm so happy to know you have a blog. I wondered, clicked on your name and sure enough -there it was. I read every word on it so far. I enjoyed every word. You truly have a way with them.

I love your lists. The feeling of sliding a finished layout into the protector is close to being my favorite thing about scrapping. That and Pea Praise. Gotta love the Pea Praise.

Can't wait to read more!

Tracie :)
