Ruined Album...

I have been lurking here for a few weeks now and just need to vent! I made a scrapbook a while back of a trip that DH and I took to visit my grammy in CA. It was the very first scrap album I have ever done. We moved recently (ok, almost 2 years ago and I am still not totally unpacked) and it was in a box in my basement. We got a wee bit of water in our basement and of course the water had to find the ONE bos that the scrapbook was in! ARGH! Thankfull the pages inside are fine, but the back cover of the album is ruined. I am thankful that the pages are fine, but cheesed off about the album itself! Thanks for letting me vent!

BTW, I am really enjoying all the pages you are all posting!!

I am so sorry to hear about your album! I would have been po'd too but thankfully none of your pages were ruined! Those are what is important, you can always buy another album but you may not be able to make the same pages.

Thanks! I am trying to get a new album off ebay since it is a creative memories album and they are so pricey new!

BTW, its so nice to see you over here!! Ryne is just getting cuter and cuter!

I have not bought my album for ryne yet, I was thinking of holding off because I want to personalize it. I am thinking of buying a nice 3 ring binder and then creating a front and back for it, that way I can just keep filling it up. I won't have to go through album after album. and thanks for the compliment, Kayley is just adorable! I have been lurking over on the July board just haven't posted much.

an album is so easy to replace, the work inside is not. I'm so glad the damage wasn't worse.

hope to see more from you here, love that we're getting so many new people on this board!

Sorry about your album, but atleast it was just the album and not the pages like you said.

Wow, what a blessing the pages inside were not ruined! I hate that you have to get a new album, but that's so nice you didn't lose all the time and memories of the pages. That is one of my greatest fears: losing my scrapbook pages to a disaster!
Anyways, glad to see you out of lurkdom! Join in and have fun! Smile

An album can be replaced. Thankfully it wasn't the pages inside that got ruined. I think I'd cry for days if that happened to me. One of my pages got bent and that gave me the blues for about a week.
