I've been really working hard on simplifying my layouts, I'd like MORE simple and WOW in my work, I want it to be about the pictures and the feel. I think for awail there I was getting to hung up on over embellishing and it was becomeing more about the "STUFF" than the pictures and memories. So I'm focusing on that more and getting there I think.. what do you think?
thanks for looking and would love the any comments
Oh and I'm looking for a sweet poem to add where the journaling should be but I haven't found one that fits yet.

This layout was the most fun layout I have done is a long time. The WOW about it for me is I hand stamped and hand cut every single flower. I layered them with pop dots, inked the edges and used a white uniball to add depth and life to them.. I am sooooo lovin' this stamp set, I can't wait to make more in many diffrent colors

This layout I did was for my teen girl .. i think the papers are versital even tho they were disigned for boys. I recomend you get some for those "edgey Fun" layouts

I see each layout as one of a kind, a work of art, a master piece as an individual layout, not really part of an album story but more as; each layout has it's own story. So when I put them together in an album they are not in any kind of order other than by age Such as: my son has an album from birth to one year old, then starts an album for him at age two and so on. For my older children I have had to combin ages since I didn't have enough picture to fill an album for them at each age. In each album the layouts don't have an order it may start with a Halloween layouts and end with and Easter layouts, I put them in the albums as I scrap them for me this works. I wasn't always like this I have only been doing this way in the last year and a half, the reason I started is I wanted to improve my scraping skill and style and wanted more "WOW" layouts.
So if you feel you want to improve your skill or style or your are starting to feel a bit board with scrapping, I suggest putting aside your hang up to scrap in "order" and flip through the photo's you have and scrap what strikes you in the moment. You just might be surprised!!

Check out the MESS!!! Yup I scrapped only 3 layouts and this is what the clean desk now looks like...crazy!!
SO tell me what is your scrappy atmosphere like?? what surrounds you and puts you in your groove?
well what mostly surrounds me is MESS, but it doesn't put in the groove!! In fact I tend to get less done when i have a huge mess. But if it's all clean and everything is put away. I can't wait to scrap, it's like i can hear it all calling me to come out a play!! Just dieing to make a mess HAHHAHAHHAH

I find working with the color yellow most challenging for me.. I'm sure you have a color you least like to work with also.. well not only was the yellow in this hard for me but I hate my hand writing, I wished now I hadn't done it.. but I'm callin' this one done. and leaving it as is.. The only thing I like about this layout is the Bohemia rub-on HAHAHAH . The paper is Basic grey "urban couture" line, it's a hard line to work with I think, the print is cool, but a bit wild for me.. This layout for sure pushed me outside my comfort zone.. and we all need that once in awhile.
So happy scrappin'

The year is flying by, I can't believe it's already the end of Feb. Awwww but then that means spring is near and with the weird weather all over, we'll be glad it's coming.
Okay well I decided I would not set any scrappy goals this year, other than I'd like to use more of my stamps in my Lo's.. Well Not setting any goals sure has paid off for me so far, In Jan. I scraped 26 layouts and over 36 cards (of course many of the cards were the same design ..but hay) and as of today for Feb. I've scrapped 12 layout's .. I guess not have a goal has set me FREE hahahahahah, I've been rideing the the "feelin' it" wave, scrapping only what truly inspires me, Well it kinda puts me all over the place as to what I'm scraping, BUT I have been very pleased with my work lately, witch is not the case most of the time. My last Layout witch was titled "she was an artist and her life was her canvas" really put me in touch with the artist in me.. So I think I'm on to something here and gonna see how far I can take it..
hope you find a good scrappin' wave to ride too. HAHAHa
