I like simple

I'm learning a lot in my Photoshop scrapbooking class but in the lessons we create elaborate layouts - helpful for learning but simple is more my style. It wasn't until I'd done a couple lessons that I realized that I could make changes to suit me in the layouts but they're still a little fancy for my taste. I did the lesson for week 4 and then reused the same focus photograph for the Wednesday challenge - this is where we create out own layout.

I've been working in a 5x7 format so I can print here at home and I've been using some of the pages I create as cards. I think this one will make a nice card.

Speaking of nice, Kathie sent me a beautiful top to quilt and donate for HeartStrings. I really appreciate the opportunity to finish and donate the tops sent to me and with the others that have arrived in the last couple weeks, I'll have plenty of quilting to do in the next few months. I can't wait to show you my progress.

I think a nice refresher of the principles of layout is good, but I'm glad you're going in your own direction.

I love the blue tinge too. Also the sentiments expressed.I make a point of telling my family members I love them, every time I talk to them, or see them. Who knows what lies ahead...

Many magazine designers share your philosophy.

Simple is clean and fresh. It is appealing to the eye.

Yes, this page would make a great card.
