as requested...

Here is a recent layout I did of Megan when she was 3 weeks old. I made my own photo studio by laying a big pink sheet on the floor. I think it worked out great. It's so fun having a girl now to scrapbook! I've been scrapping Jake for the past 3 years and everything has been blue, green, and red. Though pink and purple aren't necessarily my favorite colors, it's nice to have a little variety! Plus, flowers are just so cool. And how many flowers can you really have on a boy page?!
In response to a few comments to my last posting...Mom..I really don't have much talent. I just read a lot of magazines and get ideas. I rarely have my own design! Though, this one actually was my own idea! Anyways, I realize that yeah, I'm home right now so I do have some free time for scrapping. But no matter what, I just find time because it's what I like to do. It can be quite overwhelming though if you get behind. So Jami, I know what you mean about it all piling up. I've got at least 100 pictures in my account waiting for the next payday so I can order my prints! 100 prints is a little scary because to me that may mean I get a little overwhelmed and then a little UNinspired. In which case I will choose not to scrap the pictures. But that brings up another good point. You don't have to scrap every picture. It's not necessary is it? I don't think so. As long as your getting your story told, what does it matter? And it doesn't matter if you don't think it looks good, because more than likely, everyone else will think it does! So just do it! If it makes you happy! Imbrace imperfection and just go with it!

I love the page! Oh, how I would love to think I could make something like that.....I have a hard time cutting anything out of a my talking, apparently I just do not know how to get to the point! Scrap booking is an art, and like any other art, not everyone has the talent. I think my talent is knowing where I don't have any!
