It is a truth universally acknowledged...

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife...who scrapbooks!

If Jane Austen had been a scrapbooker, I'm sure that's how she would have started Pride and Prejudice.

In any case, I thought it was a great way to start this springtime entry, and speaking of spring, I'm working on some digital pages of flowers.  I hit a snag when I lost the cable to connect my camera to the computer, but I may just find some of my older prints from a long ago visit to the Flower Fields in Carlsbad.  Row upon row of ranunculas...which are much prettier than the name would have you believe!  Anyway, my sister and I spent half a day meandering among the different colors, and about 4 rolls of film each!  Which back then was quite an investment.  And I wish I had some digital shots to share with you.  But that's why I'm hoping to go back next spring (I'm already too late for this year).  However, as soon as I find my camera cable, I'll share some lovely blooms from Disneyland!  Spring is a wonderful time to visit the Magic Kingdom and see what the gardeners have been up to...and it can change week by week, so you never know what surprises you'll find.

So if you have a floral fantasy photo you like, please share it with me, and I'll post it here.

Happy scrapping! 



  1. Cute twist on Austen. Not sure how my hubby would feel about that (he's been dragged into my scrappy life without much say). But then, he's not a single man in possession of a good fortune. :-D

  2. Thanks for your comment! My husband is in the same boat...but now that he's seeing how StoryBook Creator works, he wants to scrap! So I'm going to show him how...but he's paying full price for his books!
