I have emerged from the world of scrap-booking with renewed admiration for all the scrapbookers out there!
This project was conceived when we decided to write birthday letters for a special member of our family who celebrated her 60th birthday earlier this month. I was the project manager! I got most of the letters via e-mail and then I put them into word documents, created text boxes, changed the shape, chose cute fonts, auditioned the paper to see which ones will work best etc.
I also made several trips to the craft store. I scoured the internet for ideas. BIG MISTAKE. Everything I saw looked so professional that the “creative” ideas I had sizzled faster than butter in a hot pan. After willing the “what do I do now” feeling away, I resolved to work with my own inner creativity and I made progress. Thank goodness!
I enjoyed the creative process thoroughly! I am proud of my first attempt.
Here are a few photos:)
