ME--Scrapbooking Again!

I know.... it's been AGES since I made a layout! The large space in the page is always intimidating. But seeing some of the SRM team mates' gorgeous layouts recently, I'm inspired to try it again. I used the latest release of the Cosmo Cricket (Salt Water) paper. I realized it really helps to make a layout with GREAT paper products that all match! Gone are the days that I made the page "from scratch"!

I used the doily stamp and made the lace flower with the heart button for the embellishments. This photo is my DD Stephanie. The "photographer" was my son David who took the photo during our cruise last year. I used Life is Beautiful sticker

I love the stickers in this layout... it make the journaling task so much easier and meaningful!  Got to love that about them! And oh....I made the lace flower (string around the lace and add a button--ta-da!). I hope to make more scrapbook pages this year! How about you? Feel like scrapping?

Great page Virginia! I'd keen to do more scrapping this year - I'm such a newbie tho, it's kind of nerve-wracking to take the plunge! Thanks for the inspiration

What a gorgeous lay-out! Love the stamping on it too. I am embarrased to say that my photos are piling up on my computer and in a box, still trying to find their way to a scrap page! I have to get started, but I love card making soooooooooooooo....much!
