I started scrapbooking at the age of 19, during my first year at varsity. So it is now almost 10 years. And I cannot believe how scrapbooking has changed from then to now.
My now mother-in-law came home one day and showed me this new hobby that had entered the South African market. When I saw it the first time, I just knew that this is something I had to do. With being at varsity, and not really earning by own salary, it was something I did and loved but only limited. I had the basic tools and lots of paper (I have ALWAYS been a paper freak!!!!!!!!!!!!). Only once I started working and got married in 2008 did I seriously start scrapbooking on a much bigger scale.
