3 layouts

I scrapped one layout that I can't post online. It was very cathartic but it had to do with child abuse so it's too personal and too possibly inflammatory family-wise so that one will just stay in my scrapbook...I call that particular style of layout "Scrap-journaling". But these babies are perfectly blog-appropriate!!! The journaling reads as follows,
"September 2007-these pictures are of a very joyful, momentous occasion in my life-my first time cropping! I registered and Jesse allotted me $100 for my 30th birthday present. I was so nervous and had no idea what to expect. I learned so much that night and it opened up a whole new world of design ideas. That was the true start of my passionate addiction to this wonderful hobby. I love it so much and it truly brings me the most pure, unadulaterated JOY of anything I've ever done in my entire life. My enthusiasm hasn't waned at all, which is so surprising. Usually it's hard to stay excited about anything in life. With scrapbooking, it's easy! (JAN 2009)"
I'm off to crop with the scrap gals, I'm picking up some new pics at Costco on my way. They are Christmas pics, so I'll be starting even more layouts. I still have like 30 of these old ones to finish, but it is so fun. I'll finish someday...
