Why did Charlotte start scrapbooking?

How/Why did you start scrapbooking? When I had my first child I wanted to do something with my photos of him, and I found out there was something called Scrapbooking... Just not here in Denmark! I surfed the internet and saw lots of beautiful pages and thought I would give it a try myself. The bad part was, that NO scrapbooking supplies could be found here - so I had to wait some years to see products in the Danish stores. I orderes my goodies in the big US at first and then I started doing my own pages. (Now we have more and more little scrapbooking stores around this country .... and what a relief!!!).

How long have you been scrapbooking? About 4-5 years.

What is it about scrapbooking that you really love? I really love that I can tell my family's story. I love the idea about the future generations will have a chance to get to know us (kind of) through my pages. And ofcourse I LOVE the creativity and the endless possibilities.

How many hours a week do you scrapbook? I mostly use weekends and when I have days off work. About 8 hours a week ... but I could use A LOT MORE :)

How long does it take to complete a layout? That really depends on how creative I feel that day! Sometimes it takes 2 days to complete a layout others it takes less than an hour.

Where do you get your inspiration? Mostly online (galleries and blogs), but also from scrapbooking magazines.

Charlotte, when I started scrapbooking, there weren't too many around who were into it either. But I managed to get my sisters totally addicted!!! Ain't that what sisters are for! haha!
There's still not very many in my area who scrapbook, but it is getting more popular as time goes on.
