Let me just put this out there...this hobby is meant to be fun! If you are not enjoying it maybe a good old fashioned photo album is the way to go. :) Just sayin'.
Last night I created a layout, but first I had fun editing the photos. I just played a bit. :) It gives it a little bit of a more artsy look. I know there are people that do this all the time. And there are fantastic actions available, but sometimes it's fun to just sit down and try things and see what you come up with on your own. I promise you'll feel more proud. :)
Here's my layout that uses my "fun" photos.
The layout uses the lovely Summer's End collection from Fancy Pants. I used TWO transparencies and some acrylic accents on it! Lots of clear loveliness piled on this page. :) Here are some close up's:
Something else I want to say....it's been on my mind lately. I posted this on my facebook page yesterday: We need to learn to fight FOR each other, not WITH each other! We are all starving for encouragement and love. :) I just want to say that this DEFINITELY applies to us scrapbookers too! There are many different styles and many scrapbookers at different levels. I am so sick of hearing people say negative things about others' work. I know it's not everywhere (mostly because it's not allowed). But I encourage you to ENCOURAGE. Go leave 5 (or more) comments on people's work! I promise that it matters! People need to hear it.
Have a fantastic day!!! Thanks so much for stopping in! :)
