I thought it would be fun to see how far i have come since my 1st layout...

to one of my recent ones...

*Together By Flutterbye0419

for me, it's amazing to see how far i have come. when i made the first layout i was so scared and had barely anything to work with. today, even though i have TONS of stuff to choose from, i went back to basics and did a TON of layering. i'm loving branching out... so, would you mind sharing where you were and where you are today just for fun???

Yes we certainly have! And that's why I generally don't re-do layouts... even if they make me cringe, because it's fun to see the evolution of my skill and style!

I don't know why my 1st pic isn't showing up?
Maybe because I had to go in and edit it to enable the embed option?

i am the same way... for me it's lots of fun to look at how my style evolves from the basic beginner to a decent intermediate style. i can't wait to try some new techniques. i'm almost bored with inking now, so i think it's time to try something new and i gotta get me some more flowers in stock! love using them! they add so much dimension to the page!

Oh, this is hilarious! I started scrapbooking when my son was 2 yrs. old, so almost 5 yrs. ago now. I think my early LOs are so funny....why oh why did I think it was cool to cut all my photos into shapes? They weren't even shapes either...I didn't own a circle cutter at first....
Everything was very flat as well....I love dimension now and have to add chipboard and layers to my pages! I also like techniques and have embossing, heat embossing, painting, misting or something on just about every page....
Who knows if I'll look back on these pages in 20 years and still like them but I like them now!

This is too funny! Over the weekend I was showing someone my first layout. I had some of the ugliest paper that I purchased from Big Lots. I knew nothing, but I just wanted to get into crafting! I don't have a photo on sb.com but here is a link:

I am more of a card maker, but here is an up-to-date layout:
