First and latest

Okay, so here is one of my first pages I ever scrapbooked. Pretty "scary". Actually, we had a good chuckle today at the store. But in all self defence, I had never taken a Basics class. Had to have every one of those decorative scissors. At least I used the" bat cut" edge around my pictures. I was being consistant. lol Anyway, everyone is welcome to comment on it, I think I get the prize for sticker sneezing. I even put one on the tombstone!

Now this page I finished last night. When you look at these two pages, it makes me realize that I have grown and I am creative. I do have to work at it, I may not be as natural at it as some but the creativity is there. Just giving myself a self-confidence boost. Anyone who knows me well knows I am my worst critic. This page came together yesterday so easy and I did not scraplift any of it. For me, that is big. It is one of my pages that I am totally pleased with.

    Love this Laura! I totally might have to remember it somewhere in the future - if I ever get back to scrapbooking.

    This is bad! Do you know how many Karen's I know? Can I have a hint? Did you move here from another country? If I am wrong, you are not going to let me live it down! That's the hazard of working in retail. Let me know if I got it right...please!!!

    Didn't you click on my user name? Where do you end up? On the blog of a Canadian? - I don't think so!
    Who else would be so cheeky!


  13. Laura Says:

    Okay, duh! So I didn't think to check your blog. I won't make that mistake twice. Actually, the cheekiness (if that is a word) is what made me think of you...ha! ha! ha! Have to admit that was quite a "blonde" moment for me. I had a good chuckle over that one. Good thing I can laugh at myself, because I'm sure I'll be hearing about it from customers in the store who read my blog!

    As usual my dear friend you continue to amaze me with your work. You have matured beautifully from the little scrapper I met a few years ago.
