that i must steal another survey (or whatever you want to call it) from simplescrapbooks.com
what can i say, i'm not original.
'sides, it's been rough at work for everyone in the castle here.
the baby shower's this weekend. no, i'm not going, but it just plays at the back of my mind all day, which in turns makes me a little over-emotional.
this whole turning 45 thing is bumming me out. BIG time.
am i totally pitiful yet?
so with no further ado...allow me to send this to you. have fun!!

When scrapbooking, how do you begin a layout? i end up picking out colors and embellishments i want to use. then there's a lot of scooting things around, banging of fists, and diet coke with lime.
