Scrapbooking doesn't have to be complicated with tons of tools, inks and embellishments. Now don't get me wrong, it's super F-U-N to scrap with all of that stuff BUT you don't need it to get your memories down on paper.
Case in point:
Because the pattern paper itself was pretty "pattern-y" I didn't want to overwhelm it with a bunch of embellishments. (I know, it's hard for me not to overwhelm any project. LOL) I did add a felt heart I found on clearance last Valentine's Day.
I did a simple sequin border around the first picture. I then decided to cut Toot out of the second picture and tried to make it look like she was standing behind the heart. :) A little punch out phrase for the title and there you go! One layout done and it took me about 10 minutes.
Some people find scrapbooking overwhelming with all the bells and whistles. But really, whether or not you have the latest papers or the newest inks or the fanciest machines it all boils down to putting your memories where you'll be sure to find them later. :)
Have a great day everyone!
