The Scrapbooker's Bill of Rights

I can't remember where I found this I think its so true. I have this printed and been in my craft room for years thought i share this with you hope you like it.

A Scrapbooker is entrusted with documenting and safely preserving family photos in an album to be treasured by future generations. Creating a Scrapbook is an honorable and important task. As a Scrapbooker you are entitled (but not limited to the following rights:

You have the right to take as long as you want to complete one album page. This may be five minutes or two weeks.

You have the right to purchase a certain scrapbook item for no other reason than because:
  • you like it;
  • you think it's cute;
  • you'll never find it again, or;
  • you know you'll use it someday.
You have the right to a workspace of your own. This may be the basement, your college student's old bedroom or the kitchen table. It's yours.

You have the right to scrapbook when inspiration strikes - whether the dishes are done or not.

You have the right to request peaceful, kid-free, stress-less scrap time - guilt free.

You have the right to create pages that reflect and celebrate the spirit of the one person who is usually NOT in the photograph: YOU.

You have the right to put whatever you want on your album page. This includes, but is not limited to: patterned papers, die-cuts, stickers and punch-outs. You may place as many or as few photos per page as you deem approriate.

You have the right to do nothing more than snack and socialize at a 6 hour cropping party.

You have the right to value your personal scrapbooking style to be as important as your photographs. You are creating a treasure and part of that treasure is YOU.

You have the right to create your own legacy, one page at a time.
