I chose to create a layout about the person who inspired me to become a scrapbooker - Becky Higgins. It all began when I saw a friend's scrapbook, and thinking that I might like to give it a try, I went to a scrapbook store. I bought an album, a few stickers, and "Creative Lettering" by Becky Higgins. I fell in love with scrapbooking that day. I poured over her book, learned every font, studied every sample layout, and became a devoted student of all things Becky. She was my scrapbooking teacher in those beginning years and I've followed her ever since.
Not only do I admire her scrapbooking talents, but I admire her for many other things - how she values family, her passion for other creative endeavors and her love of people. She seems very sincere, down to earth, and genuine. Of course, if I were to ever meet her, I may be disillusioned, but I really don't think so :). It would be a dream come true! If I ever got that chance, to actually meet Becky Higgins, I think I would faint. I wouldn't be able to form a sentence and I'd probably cry! I'm not sure I would have dove into scrapbooking like I did if it hadn't been for her example, and with the blessings scrapbooking has brought me, I am forever grateful to Becky.
Okay, enough gushing! I said there was a prize. Guess what?! Precocious Paper is a busy little sponsor bee this month!
