I don't know about you, but when people come to my gallery and look but never even say hello I wonder what it is that they thought. I'm not looking for the typical "great lo", "nice job", "wtg" kinda thing. I want ladies who really want to Get Real! Ladies who will say when something just doesn't seem to fit, or when something is missing. Scrapbooking is a constant learning process and we cannot learn if we are not open to new ideas.

I know she hasn't put up a member list yet, but I will take the plunge. This one was a real struggle for me, took me a long time to figure out what the heck I was doing with it. In the end, I think it came together nicely, but it's certainly not what I had in my head originally...

Do be honest! Does it need anything more? I know the ribbon is a little askew, I can't quite figure out how to adhere it, and since it's sheer, even Glue Dots showed through a bit...

If we leave a comment in someone's gallery, should we preface it with "GR" or something like that?
