    I will admitt, I am a paperaholic. I have more paper than I should, it is over flowing, I can't pass it up.....I am addicted!
    But why is then when I sit down and actually scrap I don't have the right shade or style or color?
    Please explain this?

    Hi my name is Kathy. I am a paper aholic also. You can never have enough paper. It seems when I sit down I don't have the right paper also. :) :) :) I am sure you will find many more people that will admit to this.

    The bad side of that is I am planning on moving to Florida in the next couple of months.

    I'm with Kathy... you can NEVER have too much paper.

    And I'm devestated. I was buying my cardstock online by the pack, but their site has been down forever and I think they've actually closed. I think I'll call this week (after payday) and see if I can put in an order over the phone... it's gonna get ugly here soon... LOL!! I HATE paying store prices!!

    Hi, My name is Bev and I am also a paper-holic! I have about 8 inches of solid cardstock, plus a paper taker bursting at the seams of patterned paper, yet I never have the right shade, and had to buy about 20 more sheets of patterned paper yesterday, 'because it was pretty'....

    Hi, Im Bethany and I am a paper-holic.
    I have 3 filled Cropper Hopper 12 x 12 paper totes, as well as a good 6" stack of stuff that wont fit in the totes.
    As far as never having the right shade, well that is just an evil plot by the LSS's to get us in there. Like we would only go in and buy a couple sheets of paper for a layout. They know darn well every trip in the store is good for at least $25.

    My name is Laura and I am a paperholic also.

    AND, I never seem to have the right shade or color when I sit down to scrap also.

    Although I will say I went to my sister's LSS the other day and put back the paper I started to take.

    It was funny last week. I was driving by the LSS with my daughter in the car. She usually kids me and says give me your wallet before you walk in.

    She gave me this lecture about did I really need more paper than I already have. I said wait till you walk in and see the store. Well to make a long story short she fell in love with the paper and supplies. You should see what she bought. :) I love it when I can tempt someone else.

    I to am a paperholic. But my problem is that I go to the store to pick up paper, then once I get it home I change my mind on using it. So I have this nice stack of paper going that I can't find a use for. I'm sure I will someday.

    I love paper too! I find myself going thru telephone books when we're on vacation looking for scrapbook stores just to buy paper! DH says I'm obsessed - can't understand why I'd want to scrapbook shop while on vacation (he'll never understand).

    Piglet's Pal, everytime I go to S. Florida I make at least one trip to the Scrapbook Den on the corner of Hillsboro and Lyons. Have you been there? Love the paper there!

    I too, am a paper addict! I never have the right shade or color
    even though I have the MM 12 x 12 cabinet filler to the brim along with an additional two paper takers and a 30 inch stack in a cabinet. I must stop buying and start using some of this!

    LOL!

My friend and I about every couple of months or soeven if we don't need it or not take a road trip up the turnpike to 441 and Lake worth for the Scrapbook Place then down the road on 441 and Glades to another scrapbook place (its ok) then we stop for lunch at Sweet Tomato then off to the Scrapbook Den then if we have time go to State Road 84 and Hiatius at Photo Crafts then to Pines Blvd and Plam to the Memorie Cottage (which is only 10 mins from my house..................LOL.
    Last month we went down south to Miami to 2 stores one was good and the other was ok.

    You and me both. Yes, I heard she's very ill. She and her husband are the godparents of a friend's daughter. So sad! I don't think it was that long since her son had similar surgery. My friend had asked all her stamping/scrapbooking friends to make cards for him.
