I've only been scrapbooking for about two years. My level of creativity is very limited. I used to use sample layouts from Creative Memories Idea Books the majority of the time. Even when I'd do a layout completely on my own I kept it very simple. I've tried to get the creative juices flowing over the last month or so by reading everything I could find about scrapbooking and looking for and browsing through LOTS of layouts online. I went today to a local scrapbooking store and got some ofthese. Heidi Swapp products are new to me, but they are quickly becoming a favorite.
So tonight I really branched out. I used my flower embelishment and ribbon. These are both new things for me, so even though this page is very simple, I'm really proud of it. It took me 2 hours to put it together, which is entirely too long, but practice makes perfect!
