I read this today on the Jessica Sprague forum.
Scrapbooker’s Bill of Rights:
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:1.you like it; 2.you think it’s cute; 3.you’ll never find it again, or; 4.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 appropriate.
- 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.
