Thank you!!

WOW! What a nice welcome from all of you. I want to thank you all for the beautiful comments! I appreciated each and every one of them.
How many of you work hours on a LO and than in the end delete it??? I have done that myself so many times. You get an idea, or maybe you don't have any idea at all, and you start to create a page only to delete it !! There went 5 hours down the drain.LOL! I have so many different ways of getting started on a page-most of the time I have no clue how I want to do it. Sometimes I find a kit I absolutely love-than proceed to try and find a photo to go with it, and other times I have a photo I really want to scrap-so than I start the hunt for the right kit. Sound familiar to anyone??? One of the pages I want to showcase today is one that I had a kit to use and had to find a photo to use. I absolutely loved the fabric paper in this kit and I didn't know how I was going to use it, but by high or low water I was going to use it!!LOL!! Even tho the page is basically a simple concept it still took me over 6 hours to make because I didn't know how I was going to make it. Than I started playing around with the photo effects and tried different photos until I found the right photo I wanted to use and the right look from the effects. What's so great about scrapping is there is no right or wrong way to do it. You are scrapping your memories for your enjoyment and to hand down to your children and grandchildren. Being able to post them in different galleries is just a bonus and of course a way to show off your pictures of your loved ones, right!!?LOL! Or just to get a little feedback on what you did. Here is the LO I made with the fabric paper.

This is not my usual style, and really different from what I normally do-but I really liked how it turned out. My GS's eyes are so mesmerizing I love being able to focus on them whenever I can. I used Deanne Gow-Smith's kit Purple Power which can be found here at DSO. The word art is from Bethany.
Well I have to cut it short for now--I need to get to work. Until next time take care and have fun!!

How did I not realize that you had a new blog????!!!??? (I've been soooo out of things lately! LOL!) Lovin' the new online premises! Ha ha ha.... I've totally scrapped about a bazillion layouts... like you were saying. And sometimes I'll start with a specific goal and end up with something totally different all together!!! Just wanted to stop by and say 'hello' and congrats on the new blog! Your layouts are GREAT and I can't wait to see more here on your blog now too! {{HUGS}}
