Scrapbooking Week in Review for April 28 – May 05, 2008

Take advantage of the continuing rain and spend some time scrapbooking and playing around with your supplies. Perhaps you could even spend some time organizing your stash, going through your albums, or even set up a fun portrait session with your kids. Here is what has been going on in the scrapbooking blog this week. Be sure and check out the new columns appearing in the scrapbooking blog that were introduced this week.
