The Cut and Paste Theory

I have a theory about why I love scrapbooking and card making so much.

I refer to this as my 'Cut and Paste Theory' and while I have no supportive evidence other than my own experience, I believe that this theory does have some merit.

Let me explain.

I remember the 'cut and paste' center in my kindergarten classroom and how I loved spending time there.

As I got older I continued - cutting articles and pictures out of newspapers and magazines, and pasting them into spiral notebooks.

And I continue to this day - adding paper and embellishments to surround my pictures, cutting up pieces of paper to make a card.

After all, isn't scrapbooking and card making just a grown up version of 'cut and paste'?

I believe scrapbooking and card making were a natural progression for me - from my humble beginnings at the 'cut and paste' center, an avid scrapbooker and card maker I became.

Are you a scrapbooker and/or card maker?  Did you love 'cut and paste' growing up?  Let me know and help lend support to my theory.
