I am a clean scrapper. I like things to have a place, I like it layered but organized. I also admit that I look at all the layouts that are so popular these days and wonder "why on earth would they use so much product on one page?", "isn't it expensive to put all that product on one page?" and "the focus is no longer on the photos". The last one puzzles me the most because I don't scrapbook for me...ok well yes I do because I love to do it but I scrapbook for my children because I want them to remember their lives.
So I set out to try this type of layout...which is WAY out of my comfort zone, to try to keep the cost of the layout down and still keep the focus on the photos. This is what I came up with:
While it's not my style at all...it was so FUN to make. I don't think I could do it on a regular basis but I will definitely play in this sandbox again.
I hope you will stop by The Memory Nest to see what the other girls created. Have a wonderful day!
