I have loved this website for years now and admired the amazing artists and their work. I began scrapbooking with Creative Memories using clean lines, some printed paper, stickers, borders...you know! I have tried to create some pages using the buttons, beads, glitter,feathers, flowers, etc and I just do not the the panache that so many of the talented designers have on this sight. It was not only disastrous but also very discouraging. So, about a month ago I gave in and realized that I will always be a classic, basic scrapbooker. My family and friends love my books and they are now fun again to create. I am totally in awe and have total admiration for all of you AWESOMELY TALENTED artists that can take mixed media creativity to the limit, but I am
enjoying scrapbooking again, realizing that "less" is OK, too! It's our hobby to love and enjoy!
