What do you think is your most essential, can't scrap without, tool? Let's not count adhesive or a cutting implement because without those nothing would be done!
Umm! What a decision. I distress with ink a fair bit so I am thinking my Adirondak sepia ink pad but maybe not, I know my pens. I am big on journaling and I almost always hand write. I may find one in every 100 layouts has computer written journalling! So that's my decision, my essential Scrapbooking tool is my white gel pen or my black zig writer.
What is yours?
