I've been scrapping like crazy lately and I sail right through travel layouts because they are pretty much a block format.
However, when I have pages to do of my granddaughter (will be 2 in Sept), I like them pretty and frou-frou and flowery and I struggle with that style. I had boys - I've never had a reason to do "pretty" scrapbooking before and I love it but it is very difficult for me.
My mother (the baby's great-grandmother) gave me her rocking chair she had when she was a toddler. Its over 80 years old! When our granddaughter comes to visit I let her sit in it because it is just the right size for her.
I have a picture of her in it - the chair is red and the baby is wearing a red top and blue pants with white spots. Very patriotic but it wasn't 4th of July so I don't want to do a patriotic page. I want girly and feminine.
I found a selection of Dr. Seuss papers that could be cute but I want girlier. I can't find flowered paper with red in it and it has to have red for her shirt and for the rocking chair.
Everything girly I have is in pink or pastels which isn't going to work with this layout. This one is truly stumping me because the natural flow is to go with a patriotic layout with the red rocking chair and her wearing red white and blue and I don't want to do that. This was taken on Thanksgiving last year.
This page will be in the middle of my Thanksgiving pages and I want girly!
