You know you are a scrapbooker when...........

My sister and I love living in a major city. It is full of culture, opportunities and craziness. We play a game, kind of like I Spy, that we call you know your ghetto when...and then we add the ending. Like she called me when she saw someone eating a full chicken dinner on the elevated train. That is definitely ghetto. I topped her because my boyfriend saw someone eating a large can of canned peaches out of the can on the bus - too ghetto. So I decided to put a spin on it about scrapbooking. You know you are a scrapbooker when................

* there is no such thing as junk mail - everything can be altered.
* Every moment, including your kids playing in dirt, is a photo-op.
* Having five pairs of scissors and ten different kinds of glue actually makes sense.
* You spend more time cleaning your scrapping area than your house.
* The UPS man starts to wonder what is really in those pizza boxes.
* You compliment someone's outfit because you have similar patterned paper at home.
* You make your children get dressed before they open their Christmas presents - the pictures will look better.
* You have more art supplies than your children.
* People like the handmade card you gave them better than their gift.
* A good weekend means you completed five layouts and did laundry.
* Words like Xyron, deboss, and Clickit mean something to you.
* Your family feels honored to even be allowed in your scrapping space (they still can't touch anything though)
* tearing paper is a good thing.
* You struggle to figure out what to do with that last little piece of your favorite paper - it is definitely not trash.

That's all for me - what can you come up with?
Thank you everyone for participating...it is good when we can laugh at ourselves. I am thinking about submitting our ideas to a magazine, I think it would make a great article. I came up with one more - You know you are a scrapbooker when purchasing supplies fall after paying utilities but come before paying the cable bill on your household budget. We all have our priorities.

too funny!

glue dots become a permanent fixture on things they are not suppose to be on.

you take pictures at bed bath and beyond of bathroom accessories because of their cool color combos and use them for inspiration.

cameras go where you go, no matter what.

.......when you will stay up EXTREMELY late working on a page because you MUST Finish it, EVEN though you KNOW you have to go to work the next morning......

.......when you go in the SB store so much people ask YOU where things are......

.......when the owner of the SB store calls you and tells you what new just came in.......

........when you leave your wallet at home and don't discover this until you are AT the SB store that is well over 30 minutes from your home, and the owner of the SB store lets you call her when you get back home to pay for the things you are taking with you..............

.........Every time you go to a differnt town, you look for a SB store..........

ROFLOL! I might have to do this on MY blog! LOL
