I’ve written quite a long post today so bear with me!! I know only some of you may read it but I just had to pour my heart out!!
Also don’t forget my CELEBRATING LIFE GIVEAWAY (on my side bar)
So I made this layout just for fun. Its not for a DT commitment and its not for a Challenge.
Remember how we used to scrapbook just for fun?
Well I forget sometimes how that feels like. Designing for my DTs and participating in challenges is truly fulfilling creatively, but sometimes I forget to scrap for fun because I feel so much pressure trying to make my work exceptional!!
That’s why this layout is just for FUN!!
I made this layout just before I went on holidays. I was away last week and pre-scheduled all my posts in advance. This week has been crazy as I’ve been trying to catch up on all my commitments. I guess you pay a price when you take a break but it was well worth it.
I don’t usually like advertising my holidays on Facebook or on my blog because there are some Predators out there just waiting for this type of opportunity. After seeing my best friend’s house ransacked from top to bottom while she was away, I take all precautions. You would be surprised at what people will steal if they had the opportunity. However most things might be insured but the most precious to me, meaning when we are all away, is my pictures. You can’t re-take those memories. That is why I copy them on hard drives and keep them out of the house for safe keeping. I’m paranoid about that.
My layout is different than my usual. I guess I don’t have a usual!!
Everyday I wonder if experimenting with so many different styles is “good or bad”.
Here is what I ponder:
Most designers out there that belong to almost all the main Manufacturer DTs have one style only and they stick to it 99% of the time.
My problem is that I love creating in every way, shape and form. I love experimenting and trying and that leads me to new adventures in my creativity. So depending on my mood, I switch from Shabby Chic to Grunge, To Whimsy to Mixed Media. I just can’t make up my mind on which I like best because I love them all the same. They fulfill different parts of my persona.
So I wonder sometimes what to do? Stick to one style in the hopes that a Manufacturer might like it or continue to be myself and experiment with different styles, methods, techniques and creations.
I think the answer is clear to me!! but I’m just wondering what your thoughts were on that matter regarding your own style?
to wrap it up here is the layout I made!! I have to give credit to my hubby for the initial idea of the carousel.
I made my own templates for the canopy and cut them out of 6×6 WP paper.
All products are Webster’s pages except for the mists. I used WP papers, sparklers, alphas, lace, digi butterflies.
I cut around my kid’s pictures on the Merry-go-round.
Thanks for visiting my blog
that’s a wrap!!
