As Promised...

Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement on my new layout/colors. However, I am indecisive and changed it again. What do you think of this new one? I just think it is a little more like spring/summer time and very happy! Like Daisies! I think I'll give this one a try for a while.

As promised, here are a few samples (I have tons more that I didn't photograph) of the scrapbook pages I have been working on. The thing with scrapbooking that I love is that I don't have to do it a certain way or make my pages look like everyone elses. There are no rules to it. Example ~ My friend invited me to scrapbook the other day. Her pages are great, I like them, but that is not how I would do them. I love that there is nothing wrong with that. She has her style and I have mine. As long as my pages look good to me, I don't care what anyone else thinks.

I guess what I am trying to say is that ... someone can make a rude comment (and someone did) like "there are crazy people that actually do stitching and stuff on their pages", I don't care. I like mine the way they are. I do it for me, not to keep "caught up" or have the best pages around ~ I do it for my enjoyment. If I want to put stitching on mine, fine. If I want to take three hours to do one page, fine. If you don't like them, I don't care.

End of story.

*Sorry about the crummy pictures, I am not very good at photographing my layouts. And it doesn't help that there is no light in our basement apartment to take good photos in. Hopefully, that will soon change - as I am on my way to sign a lease right now.

I like this new layout! It gives me a happy spring vibe!

The scrapbook pages are great! I've done a few scrapbook albums but am not terribly good at them. They're still fun though!

Your new layout is very springy and happy. I couldn't help but smile when I saw the bright colors. Your scrapbook pages looks FAB to me. Man I haven't scrapped in almost two years I am way behind! Oh and I haven't shown that bag yet cause it is for the purse swap and I want her to get it first! Good luck with the vacation!

I do like the yellow and the design itself is very nice, but not distracting. You have good taste, which I can also see in your beautiful scrapbook pages!
I really like the cat photo page. I like how the flowers are sort of random and some are under the photograph.

I really like the new layout...your background is especially pretty. I haven't scrapbooked in a few years and would like to pass on my stash to someone. Would you be interested in inheriting my once loved supplies?
