Signs of an Addicted Scrapper

I won't talk about more paper than I care to think about. I won't talk about embellishments that I don't even remember that I have. I especially won't talk about all the time I spend reading and perusing crafting blogs! I won't talk about all the photos waiting for a home in a scrapbook. I won't talk about using every inch of available storage for tools. I will remain in denial that those might be signs that I'm an addicted scrapper!

Instead of talking about those things, I'll tell you a story. I'll even go so far as to say, "It's the story of a lovely lady. (who didn't want to be bored all afternoon)" My son went to Adventuredome with his school. For those of you that don't know, Adventuredome is an indoor amusement park at Circus Circus. Since he had a friend with him, he didn't need Mom around to ride rides or hover. So, when I decided to plan a boredom-free afternoon in which I didn't care to leave any earlier than my son did. I thought about those long tables in the group area. I thought about how nice it would be to spend the afternoon scrapping on one of those long tables. It wasn't really feasible to drag a huge bag of supplies out to Adventuredome, so I decided to pack some card kits. I took some card kits, my paper trimmer, and some adhesive. I wish I had also taken an ink pad or two, but I'm still happy with the end result. These kits were quick and easy with easy-to-follow instructions. I must admit that I was surprised to see them at an LSS for $17 when Memory Works sells them for $10. Here is all that I completed in between checking on the boys, eating lunch, and getting a little exercise.

The next time you see waiting in your future, pack up a card kit and fight the boredom! If you're feeling really adventurous, you could make your own card kits! A few supplies and a little bit of space and boredom becomes productive!
