I've given up...

...on scrapbooking. Not that I ever really scrapbooked. Does a wedding album and a baby book 9 yrs ago count? I have lots of scrapbooking stuff. The paper is pretty. I don't like to scrapbook though. I don't have the time or the space - or the patience for it :) So, I've officially thrown in the towel and opened up the drawers of paper and extra scrapbooks for the girls to use.

They were delighted and dove right in. They each made their own little mini book tonight. Now that I take a closer look at their books though, they didn't really use much of the paper. They were happy enough cutting up pictures and putting them into the books. It kept them busy and quiet for over an hour. That's a miracle. :)

I now somehow feel a weight lifted. Sounds silly I know. I felt guilty having scrapbooking stuff and not using it. Now it is just part of the kids arts and crafts supplies.
