Featured at 3 Scrappy Boys!!!






So excited to see that this layout was chosen at 3 Scrappy Boys as a FAVE FOR THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER 2011- woohoo!!


It's funny how some layouts take forever, and at the end of the whole process you look at it, and 
its ooookay but not your favourite
then others come together in a click of the fingers &
  you look at it and JUST LOVE IT.

I love this layout 
- it reminds me of the type of pages made by Stephanie Howell
the effortless-looking ones that I usually CAN'T ACHIEVE!  
So let's hope that this one "unlocked" whatever it is that makes one able to 
create spontaneously & with ease, 'cos I would love to be able to make more pages like this!

Not only was it QUICK to create but it also slides so easily into a page protector & without too much dimension means I'll be able to get more pages into an album.

Don't get me wrong - I do love me a good, layered-up page - but 
clean & simple is a look I'm loving at the moment :)

Oh Gosh...Helen...I know exactly what you mean...I can never make a clean and simple layout....the easiest and quickest thing, seems to intimidate me!!! Isn't that strange? With so many commitments, my life would be so much easier...but I always feel like there's something missing...kwim?
So huge congrats to you!!!!
