                                                 -Expert Q & A's

This one for my Scrapbooking Library.  Call me insecure but I dont like those other guides that have
Idiot or Dummy in the Title!  Besides all that It was easier on my eyes to look at it.  I appreciate the use
margins ..  I have been scrapbooking for 5 and half years and I wish I had this at the beginning.  So
what inspired you to try scrapbooking ?  Is there a Scrapbooking Personality that influenced your decision
to get into this Hobby?  For me it's Cathy Zielske and Ali Edwards Which is why I follow their blogs.

This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from.
