Yep, its true. I believe I have suffered my first scrapbook related injury. A week or so ago, I was working on a layout with intricate cut-out detail. I spent a great deal of time cutting out tree branches and leaves and flowers, to create a beautiful effect that seemed to pop off the page. Trouble is when I removed the scissors from my hand there was a dent on my thumb where the scissors once were. Yikes. My thumb was a little numb for a while and still is quite sensitive to the touch. I'm pretty sure I have suffered nerve damage. :o) My point to this story? Scrapbooking is a tough sport - boys would never be able to handle it.
Below is the page in which I speak. The photos of Lilly were taken last fall on a "family reunion" trip to Colorado. She was having fun playing with her little cousins - and looked pretty darn cute in her pigtails.
It was worth losing a functional thumb over, wouldn't you say?
