Not only am I new to scrapbooking, but I have the creativity of a brick wall and the artistic talent of an elephant.
Yet, I am determined to build a Birthday Book for my mom's 80th birthday, and have asked family and friends to send me pictures and anecdotes to put in the book.
My mom is somewhat of a minimalist, i.e. she won't like lots of designs, flowers, stickers and other distractions. Her house looks like a beautiful, tasteful art gallery (in sharp contrast to my own comfortable but chaotic apartment), and I want her book to suit this style as much as possible.
Has anyone created a 'classy but not overdone' book? I am starting from scratch, so any tips are welcome! Thank you for your help!
Countdown: 15 days. Ugghh.
