simple scrapbooker.....

I have decided I am a simple scrapbooker...I occasionally do something more wowee but generally my pages are pretty clean and simple...I am not good with putting lots of stuff or embellishments on the page...I tend to like my photos in similar positions...I love to use photo corners, chipboard or plastic lettering and decorative tape...I tend to use handwriting and word strips for journalling...I love patterned paper and scalloped paper....sometimes I add a bit of stitching...I like everyday photos and to record everyday moments...and that is about it for the bulk of my pages...and I am rather happy with that...that's me...that is my style...

There are so many local aussie, kiwi and US scrappers that I admire...for all sorts of reasons...probably mostly because they do things that I do not! And this variety is great...to talk about all who inspire me would take FOREVER...

Anyway I managed a few layouts yesterday...in between entertaining E and having Ben and E play chasey around the house and through my studio! And then there was nothing on TV that interested me...I am still trying to scrap some photos printed out a year ago!!

I am totally in awe of how Carole has the patience to cut out some many flowers and make them look so fabulous on the page...I can only cut out a few simple flowers like on the page below (I have been thinking about meeting her this week hence the cut out flowers page!)
And because I am missing these girls :)
And lastly had a visit yesterday from a girl, Sarah, who I used to life with many moons ago...and her two kidlets...she bought me this very cute juicer....E keeps asking to "squeeze melons"!!!
And so that is about it for this Monday - Lissy
