Amber's Top 10

Occassionally I watch Lettermen and I'm mildly amused at his top 10 lists, so I thought I might create my own now and again. Today's Top 10........

Top 10 Reasons You Should Start Scrapbooking

10. You're not getting any younger, why not work on something to leave behind so your great, great, great someone will have a clue of who you are.

9. The new season of Lost and Grey's Anatomy haven't started, so you probably don't have anything better to do on Wednesday or Thursday night.

8. A box of photos doesn't look very attractive on your coffee table, but a scrapbook sure does.

7. I know you've got a supply of pretty paper that is just dying to be used.

6. It doesn't have to be complicated... simple is in. Just pick out some nice paper, slap on a few pictures and write a couple sentences - don't make it any more complicated than that.

5. You can "Scraplift" - if you're feeling less than super creative, go online or dig out an old magazine and pick a layout that you like. Let it inspire you and create your own version, or copy it exactly - that's ok.

4. A new 40% off coupon comes each week, so head to Micheals or AC Moore and buy yourself an album - 6x6, 8x8, 12x12 - whatever you want to work with.

3. You only have to scrapbook the pictures you like. Don't worry about those ones of you with your eyes closed or before you lost the 25lbs, cut out the ex, pass on those of long ago friends you can't even remember the names of. Just pick out a few of your favorites and get creative. Throw the rest of the pictures in a cheap photo album from Target.

2. Scrapbooking is much more fun than laundry, dishes and cleaning the oven. But even if you are feeling guilty, turn the oven on self-clean, run the dishwasher and start a load of laundy... you've got at least 40 minutes to get started!

And the Number 1 reason you should start scrapbooking......

1. All the popular girls are doing it! :)
