First of all I would like to thank all of you who took the time and effort to leave a comment on my previous post. I have received so many wonderful, sweet, encouraging words from so many of you, and I want you to know I so appreciate it. Although I know I am doing this hobby for my liking and mine alone, it seems I do needed to be reminded of that fact. I am happy to say I am back to where I was when I first started scrapping, I'm having fun! Thank you ladies!
One of the comments I received was from my sweet friend Lucy, who said she had in fact seen a change in my style lately. She said this happens to all of us from time to time, as we all experiment and grow in our work. However, we can't expect everyone to like this change ... so true, don't you think? I thought about what she said, decided she was right and to just get over it! And it worked like a charm. I'm not the most confident of people, and I suppose I never will be, but her and your words opened my eyes. It's just silly and maybe a little arrogant as well to want to be liked by each and every one of you... She also thought my change in style might have something to do with me trying to do more multiple pic LO's, and again, I'm inclined to think she's right. Thanks Lucy, for taking the time to write me that mail, for being honest with me, for not being afraid to say what you think, and for doing it in the sweetest manner. Your words really helped me out!
However, I'm a stubborn girl LOL, so I decided to do a multiple pic LO again. Nothing like not succeeding right away for me to dig right in and try harder ... One of my favorite challenge sites at the moment is the "From Screen To Scrap"site. I love their challenges, they almost always inspire me, and Shazza, the owner of the site, is one of the sweetest ladies in blogland, so I like to enter her challenges for the sole purpose of making her happy :-)
This month's inspiration was this poster:
and this is my take on the challenge:
You see, the perfect challenge to do a multiple pic LO!! For extra points we had to use the colour teal and use metal (flower) on the LO ... check! However, I failed to put my title in a block ... sorry Shazza, I just couldn't make that one work!
I really liked that little bit of red in the original poster, and decided to make the journaling pop a bit ... it made a huge difference and totally livened up the LO.
I'm really happy with this LO, and this is so what I had in mind when I first started scrapping ... telling a story with pictures, all on one page, so that when you browse through an album, it doesn't get boring. Hey, I might even get back to doing double spreads again LOL!! Whatever I do, I'll remember I'm doing this for me...
Talk to you later ladies!
