    I have a hard time scrapping events because I noticed that the photos are usually not that great! I guess I should focus more on the story and less on the photos? This sounds like a really helpful book! Thanks for the chance!

  2. Heather S says

    I find it a little difficult, as I tend to overthink things, so I instead of breezing though, I spend lots more time thinking of what I want to say.

  3. Lorraine says

    The hardest thing for me is deciding what to scrap because at holidays I always have tons of pictures. Also, I don’t want my page to look like every one I have done every other year!

  4. Debbie Constable says

    I need help with inspiration when I scrapbook. I like to see how creative other people are!

  5. Claire says

    I have heard such a lot about scrapbooking and it fascinates me. I just don’t know how to get started. I have so many 100’s or even 1000’s of photos so it would really be worth my while in actually learning how to do it before the pile grows much higher. Thanks for this chance to win your book.

  6. says

    I have always been interested in scrapping, but layout ideas don’t come easily. This e-book would help me get the start that I need so I can preserve my memories from each year!

  7. Sid's mum says

    Would love to try scrap booking, but just not sure where to start, so hhis would be an awesome e-book!

  8. Lorie says

    I have a difficult time because I have a tough time coming up with new ideas. Most of my layout look the same.

  9. Emily C says

    i have difficulty scrapbooking. i have a ton of pictures and usually they just go into an album because i don’t like to sit down and try to figure out what goes best with them. i like things to look prefect and am very choosy.

  10. Kate aka stinkydudette says

    I find scrapping events a tad overwhelming due to the sheer number of photos taken. Eek!

  11. Beckie Benoit says

    I have never been to an event but plan to this year sometime, i have trouble journaling, i usually type out what i want to say, in fear my own handwriting won’t look “professional” enough. I also tend to stay simple with my layouts & would like to get more “fuller” as for as embellishments go.

  12. Michelle B. says

    I love scrapping holidays and events! Its so nice to reminisce about all these good times and happy events. I find them easy and lots of fun and im always looking for great ideas for them!

  13. Missy K. says

    Yes, I would say I have difficulties. I can make scrapbook pages just fine, but the have no pictures on them. I never like photos enough to want to put them on my pages.

  14. says

    The hardest thing about scrapping events/holidays for me is narrowing down the pictures! I have like 60 pictures that I want to put on a page and that just doesn’t work!
