Beautiful photography is so inspiring to me. My friend Connie Hanks shares beautiful photos and her passion for photography and scrapbooking through her site Clicky Chick Creates. I was honoured when she asked if I’d like to participate in a blog tour. In this tour each blogger answers 4 questions about what they are doing and why they do it! Before I answer my questions…
Meet Connie Hanks, mommy, wife, photographer, scrapbooker, crafter and volunteer-extraordinaire who never outgrew seeing the world as colorful as a fresh box of Crayola crayons! She resides with her “4-family” in San Diego; her loving husband with whom she fell madly in love with at just 19 years old (many, many moons ago!), and her 7- and 5-year-old daughters that are the stars of most her scrapbook pages. She loves to dream, travel, play with her daughters, sing while her hubby plays guitar and rarely misses an opportunity to be behind the lens when she’s with family and friends.
Don’t miss Connie’s inspiring post HERE.
Now, all about me! If you are new here, welcome! My name is Alice Boll. You can read all about me HERE. Mostly you should know that I LOVE to scrapbook, mostly about my family. My husband and I have two teenage boys and as often as I can get a photo of them they are the stars of my scrapbook pages. I’ve been scrapbooking for over 15 years, and I have some great tricks and tips to help you create scrapbooks you love!
1. What am I working on?
I had the ultimate relaxation holiday in April with my husband. We traveled to Varadero, Cuba for a week and made a very difficult decision every day, “Should we lay by the pool or by the beach today?”. I’m creating a few scrapbook pages about our lovely escape.
I’ve been working on guest posting lately. You can see a recent guest post at Digital Scrapbooking HQ featuring 7 Tech Tricks HERE.
BREAKING NEWS! I’m so excited to share that I’m preparing to share my passion for scrapbooking through my first online class! I’m not giving away too many hints yet, but I will share a couple of tidbits over the summer. The course is to be released in September!
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Do you want to make scrapbooks you love? Well, I really want to help scrapbookers connect with the fun in scrapbooking and tell their stories with a bit of flair! I’ve seen so many scrapbookers get lost in the tedium of ‘getting behind’ and not feeling creative. Let me show you how to bring joy back to storytelling in your scrapbooks!
3. Why do I write/create what I do?
I truly enjoy scrapbooking and I LOVE to share my passion for scrapping with others. The attendees in my classes are always commenting about how excited I am when I’m teaching a workshop. I love to hear my students say, “Wow! This is awesome!” or “I never thought of that before!” during a class. This keeps me motivated to share what I love to do.
As for why I scrapbook, I want to capture the stories and memories of my life and have fun while I do it! You can read about my biggest regret about scrapbooking in this POST.
4. How does your writing/creative process work?
For me scrapbooking definitely has a process! I could tell you about my process here, but instead I’d love to share my process with you AND give you a free PDF that shows you how this process can help you make scrapbooks you love.

Now on with the tour! Each blogger will answer the 4 questions next week!)
First I’d like to introduce Janet McCormick from Jan’s Works of Heart.
Secondly meet Candra Holmes from Paper Dragon Fleur.
Finally meet my friend GinaZee from Messtaken Identity. I was slow asking her to join this tour and she was already a part of it, so this is a great chance to cross paths with a different branch of the tour! Gina has a unique approach to crafting…

Great post, Alice! Loved learning more about you and meeting your crafty friends. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Kelli. I appreciate your comment.
Great post Alice! I love the butterfly LO with the big doodled circle and butterfly. Such a cute story 🙂
Thanks Cara! I’ll confess I was scared about doodling those big circles, this was my only sheet of that paper! I’m super happy that I took the plunge and just went for it though!
LOVE that butterfly story and layout! And definitely loved getting to know more about you! I would love to take a class with you – I’m positive the class content, support and energy would be fantastic! So glad our paths continue to cross!
Thank you so much Connie, I’m honoured that you would like take my class! I love your posts and you make such beautiful pages. Thank you again for inviting me to be a part of the tour!
