"So where exactly is this "Scrapbooking Vault"? Is it an actual vault? Is it like, guarded by off-duty Costco security guys you've hired? Is there a sticker on it warning that it contains less than $100 and Dan does not know the combination? I picture you sitting in your vault at night on a tiny folding chair, fondling crushed velvet cardstock and scalloped craft scissors, a cigarette dangling from your lips with an ash THIS LONG. Sort of mumbling to yourself and getting jumpy and rattled by every random sound from the outside…"
No. It's simply an external hard drive with a whole heck of a lot of scans on it. Oh sure, you can see the layouts in REAL life, but honestly, what's the fun in that?
As I was trolling the vault yesterday for more past nuggets, I found this one and realized a great photo and a great story with specific details is all you really need for a meaningful, memorable page. The design is nothing to oogle. Just a simple page and a simple story (and some ink and some of that good old stuff from Making Memories and the days of yore.)
And Mark, here's a P.S. for you: your entertaining vision could never be accurate. You KNOW I don't smoke anymore.
