I started scrapping in Dec. 2009. I am just now starting to feel comfortable with my own style; I have stopped trying to be someone else. Some things I've learned about myself: I do not like to use overly "busy" paper, no matter how pretty; I have no imagination when it comes to stickles, I do not like alphabet stickers because I never have enough of the letters I need, I prefer muted earth-tones when it comes to paper, embossing with my Cuttlebug is good enough for me, I am not addicted to Tim Holtz stuff (honestly, I think his stuff that I've seen looks oddly the same) and I need to make a realistic scrappy budget and stick to it! I have a simple style, and that's ok with me now--I have stopped comparing myself to others in the gallery. It's been an exciting 2 years. I need to update my gallery b/c the LOs there are from last spring and summer (when I joined SB.com) and my style has evolved a lot since then (but every time I try to upload pictures, it takes forever so I give up).
