Strange-but-true fact: Playboy Magazine founder Hugh Hefner is an avid scrap-booker.
Hello everyone! Thanks for coming. Don’t forget to grab one of those lemon bars that Margie brought before they’re all scooped up… by me! Ha ha! I’m just kidding. But they are terrific, even if my thighs don’t think so.
I’m happy to see some new faces joining us here at The Sassy Scrappers. New friends I hope will become old friends. Let’s see, I’ve already met Bonnie, welcome Bonnie, and Alison. And this friendly gentleman in the pajamas over here is Hugh. Right? Hugh? Just like Hugh Laurie! Let’s hope he’s not as devilishly charming as that Dr. House, right ladies? I’m just kidding – I hope I didn’t embarrass you, Hugh. We like to cut a little loose here.
Get it? “Cut” a little loose? We have fun.
So, Bonnie, I understand you’re working on a scrapbook of that trip to DisneyWorld with the grandkids. We have some fun Mickey-ears borders you might want to try. Oh, I see you’re adding little Mickey-ears to the people in the photos. How delightful!
And Hugh, what are you working on? Well, those photos all seem to have a lovely soft-focus! Is that…
Is that… your wife? Oh, well they couldn’t all be… it’s not your daughter, I would hope… well… golly.
So, you’re something of a naturalist, then, Hugh? What, what kind of theme are you going for here, Hugh? Well, I only ask because you have these photos of a woman enjoying this pool – oh, it’s a grotto? – and then this holiday photo of these two, um, young women sharing a candy cane. Oh, dear. And so, you might, ah, you might look at organizing them according to, you know, season, or theme. Or by special occasion. This was a special occasion, I assume? NO? Oh.
Well, sure, organizing them by person and by month? I see, so this young lady here is… December, I see. Miss December. Yes. Yes, that, ah, that makes sense I suppose.
Bonnie, you want to throw open a window for me?
Well, yes, Hugh, that’s very fun how you’ve put the little Santa stickers around the edges of the pictures. It does look a little like Santa’s, ahem, looking at the photo, but…
How’s that window coming, Bonnie? Well, get your back in to it. Just heave ‘er open.
You certainly do have a way with the colored paper, Hugh. No, really. You’ve cut out some lovely borders and no, Carrie, do not come look!
Oh, haha! Sorry, what was I saying? Oh, your colored-paper matting. You have a real knack. Really highlight this young lady’s, um, freshness.
That’s a neat idea to include those caption bubbles so we know what she’s saying. I have to say, though, she may say she’s “in” to bike-riding, but this young lady doesn’t seem very equipped to “go” bike-riding, Hugh. Not at all. Well, a helmet, just for starters. See if there was a nice photo of her riding her bike, especially in appropriate cycling, um, attire… oh, sure, I guess this one on the beach would work for her being in to sunsets.
You know what? You just keep at it, Hugh. Alison, I’ll be there in a moment. I just… I’m just going to go have a couple glasses of wine real quick… Oh, for God’s sake, Bonnie! Just break the damn window!
