More Scrappy Stuff

Disclaimer: If you don't scrapbook or have any interest in it, this post may bore you to tears. So feel free to glance at the pics and return to your regularly scheduled program. Can't say I didn't warn ya. ;)

The past couple of weeks it seems my scrapbook style, or what I find appealing to the eye has been changing. That's not necessarily a new thing. I go through phases with how I like to scrapbook. Sometimes I like to tilt my photos one way or the other, other times I want them all straight with clean lines, etc. The latter seems to be what I've preferred as of late.

I have a couple of sets of pictures from last year that I still wanted to scrap. All these pics are from last July, the one time that John got to go with us to swim. I did a 2 pager for this one so I could use more pictures. For the most part I'm pretty caught up. Now remember I don't scrap all the pics I take. I'd be years behind if I did that. Especially now that I take so many. So in the second layout, you'll notice it's some pics that I just posted here after Easter. I love these pics of John and Natalie.


So those two represent the style I've been drawn to, both having a similar design. The framed square background with rounded corners, straight lined photos, etc. So I had to try to do something different just to mix things up a bit. These photos are from sometime last summer too, I still need to look up the date and add it to the layout.

I also want to mention that if you are a scrapper and you're looking for an online community come on over to DixiePieces.com I found them a couple of months ago and joined to participate in an online crop. Everyone over there is really friendly and they have frequent challenges for free scrappy prizes.

That's all folks!

OK....I don't know if your pages are inspiring me to scrap or just making me sick because I am not as good as you!!! LOL I hope I can get my groove thing back on soon. :)

You can change things around all you want, you're still all shabby chic, chickie! I wish I could be as free-flow as you are, I'm too much of a perfectionist for my own good scrapbook-wise. All your layouts look wonderful!

I just drool at your layouts, girl, and I cannot WAIT to get back on "home turf" to play around in the stores there!

I just realized that Telah had already tagged you so I tagged Lynn instead. Have a super day!
