Bill of Rights

This was "post-lifted" from my ultimate CTMH upline, Karen Morris! I hope she doesn't mind... I found it to be lovely and inspiring. :D

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:

1. You have the right to take as long as you want to complete one album page. This may be five minutes or two weeks.

2. 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!

3. You have the right to a workspace of your own. This may be the basement, your college students old bedroom, or the kitchen table. It's yours!

4. You have the right to scrapbook when inspiration strikes --whether the dishes are done or not.

5. You have the right to request peaceful, kid-free, stress-less scrap time -- guilt-free.

6. 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.

7. You have the right to put whatever you want on your album page. This includes, but is not limited to: patterned paper, stamps, stencils and most important of all.... journaling! You may place as many or as few photos per page as you deem appropriate.

8. You have the right to do nothing more than snack and socialize at a 6-hour cropping party.

9. 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.

10. You have the right to create your own legacy, one page at a time. 

Thanks, Karen!
