About to make my daughter an addict...

I couldn't think of anything else to buy for her, but knew I needed to get
her one more gift for Christmas. So, today I decided to be completely evil.
I stopped at a few dollar stores and bought a bunch of tags, stickers,
overlays and embellishments. Tomorrow, I'm off to Michaels for an album and
more papers and if something catches my eye, I'll grab that too. I figure
she owns a digital camera, she may as well learn how to put together a
scrapbook. Right?
Am I a bad mommy??? She's 21 by the way, and loves crafts.

I love it! Do you live in proximity to each other... if so you're creating a scrap buddy. We all bond with people when we are scrapping together. So nice to think of your relationship going deeper, stronger than you ever thought imaginable all because of a last minute gift :)

You are being evil in a great way! If she is a crafter already, she will surely love your gift. You might even become scrapbook buddies.
In the last week, I've realized that I've made some pretty great friends since I've moved here. One brought me some teddy bear books, another babysat me right after my surgery and the third brought me lunch and spent time the day after. Scrapbook friends are the absolute best!

No not evil, just upholding that unspoken oath of being not only a RCS member but a part of the great addiction - you are ENABLING!!
LOL!

That's exactly how I got my DD and my DIL started. They both try to get to a crop with me every few months now. I was down to visit the grandson on Sunday and DIL showed me the album she is working on. She is doing great. Problem is every time I get someone new in the family started I end up giving away my fiskar paper cutter and have to go buy a new one. I've been able to hang onto the pink one, even though DD here at home really wants it. I divide up paper packs when I buy them now, and loan out stamp sets......

I really hope she likes everything we picked out for her. Michaels had their albums on sale for 40% off today so I bought her a good one with extra pages. We bought her an eyelet setting set complete with hammer and tweezers, a fiskars cutting doomahickie that also has an exacto knife, cutting pad and something else..... Micheals had papers on for 50 cents each so I grabbed a lot of papers. She's going to have quite the kit. The dollar store sells fibers for $1.00. The same ones sell at Micheals for almost $7.00! I think I'll go back tomorrow and pick some up for me now. She lives about a 15 minute drive from me. She has dabbled in a few pages when she lived at home and seemed to have fun. I really hope she has fun doing this on her own.

No, you are a very good Mom! Once you get her hooked on scrappign, all you'll have to do is get her here, and... MUWAHAHAHA!!! LOL My DD is 8, has her own scrapping stuff, a stamp set of her own, and 2 kids' ink pads. :-) She hasn't done much with her scrappign stuff. OH oh oh! Light bulb moment!

That's what Mom's are for. My Mom went to a CM party and was very excited. She told me about it that's when I started scrapbooking. She put her stuff away because she didn't have time. Then after a few years she moved to the same city I live in and I got her restarted. I also got one of my sisters interested around the same time. Just recently my other sister has started doing here own pages (previously Mom and I were doing hers). Both my DD's (age 5 and almost 7) have some of their own supplies. Last year for Christmas my Sister bought them each an album to work on. DD5 finished hers and is working on a second one I picked up (they have 32 pages in them). The other daughter is just about finished hers. They have *very* different styles.
