TWO Scrapbook Pages!!!

You all know my issues with scrapbooking as previously described. However, my friend Lisa gave me some great encouragement. One of my issues with scrapbooking is not having what I think are good pictures. She told me the most important thing is to get the pictures on the page, and she's right. So I printed out some pictures and here you go. This first page is a layout from the Got Sketch 101 class I enrolled in. I plan to make a companion page to this first one, but I need to print another picture or two for it.
This second page I came up with all by myself, but I'm not sure you can really call it a layout. But it was quick, and this picture was a loner.
I have decided that my scrapbooking style is going to be even cleaner and simpler than my cardmaking. I was able to make these two pages in about an hour.
So, thank you Lisa, for your encouragement! And now I think I kinda like scrapbooking, so you might see some more pages once in a while!
We had some pretty crazy wind last evening, and lost power for a few hours. Thankfully my in-laws live very close and had power, so we spent a couple hours there. There are lots of branches littering the neighborhood, but nothing was damaged that I can see.
Thanks for stopping by!

Kristin Moore said...

fabulous pages Becky! I love your simple style- Oh don't I dream of doing two pages in an hour! Try an entire evening... well, slight exaggeration. I'll be back to case these!

Lisa H. said...

Yeah! Becky-these are fabulous and your pictures are great. How could they not be-look at the subject you have to work with. You even have a lot of the hard work already done since you have all those great sketches from that class. Keep working and I WANT to SEE more pages. I love them. (yes, you can call the second one a layout-everyone has their own style!)

The layouts are great. I love the fact that I can see you "style" in your layouts. Hey, at least you are doing them, me on the other hand...
