This garage sale has just about consumed all my time and zapped my brain – or is that my 2 1/2 year old. Anyway sorry for the error with my previous post about Picture My Life. I had started it then got pulled away and never got to go back and finish. So here is take two… I will be so glad once I make it to Saturday and this garage sale is over.
I have to be honest in saying I was not sure if I would like the Picture My Life style of scrapbooking. I know a lot of people really like it so I figured it was time to give it a try. It was simple choosing my cards to use even though there were 48 different designs. I then picked my photos and assembled. Being a traditional scrapbooker the hardest thing for me to adjust to was the cards are sufficient to stand on their own. What I mean is there is not a need to add a lot of additional embellishments. I did add a few with the Later Sk8r stickerease and some of the Blue and Green Epoxy Bubble.
The bottom left card is the one I embellished.
For this layout the only card I embellished was also the bottom left card.
With this layout I did not add anything to the layout.
And with this final layout I added a couple stickerease to the bottom middle card. It was really easy to complete 4 layout once I let go of the fact I did not need to over embellish 🙂 I have to admit I liked using the Picture My Life collection!
