I finally finished Photo Freedom this morning and started the Library of Memories class tonight! My first step is to complete a personal assessment. The first question asks about my scrapbooking strengths. I honestly had a hard time with this because I’m such a scraplifter! I think my greatest strength is my photography and then finding a layout to scraplift that will fit my needs. I’m growing in my journaling skills as I become more confident in telling stories that matter instead of simply recording events. The next question had me focus on my weaknesses. Again, I bring up scraplifting because I rarely design my own pages, but I don’t know if this is a bad thing. I may not be the most creative or publishing-worthy individual, but I’m able to take other people’s great ideas and make them my own. I love my pages and the stories I tell; plus, I didn’t spend hours coming up with original ideas, so it leaves me more time to scrapbook! I love the CTMH How-To books for this very reason; they save me time and make me look creative when I’m not! It makes me happy, so I guess that’s all that matters. Perhaps I should put as a weakness that I’m the world’s sloooooooowest scrapbooker…LOL!
