Really Simple and Plain Layout

THIS WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED ON THURSDAY MAY 12TH BUT BLOGGER ATE IT, REPOSTING TODAY.

I did this layout quickly. I just felt like doing a layout and pulled out some a few pictures I had. These were the only pictures I took on a trip to Texas for some reason but I still wanted my daughter and I to remember it so decided to scrap these together.

I used Basic Grey Euphoria for the paper, sticker flower element and the chipboard letters. The red pearls are Queen and Company. As you can see there is NO CRICUT! *okie gasps* I was too lazy to try and cut anything and since I had all the cool elements I just decided to slap it together quickly. Of course I did have to ink the edges, remember it is a compulsion with me at this point in my life and I cringe if I even think about not inking edges of paper *okie wonders if there is a therapy for this inkoitis that she seems to suffer*.

I am really trying to remember that not every layout has to be a masterpiece! Sometimes it can be simple, and that is okay.

The flower vine got kind of lost on the edge so I took it apart and cut the horizontal paper back a little so they would show more. I do like the pearls in the center for the flowers and it did add a little bling to help dress the layout up a little.

I did like how the flower vine overlapped onto the pictures an since the pictures were a little dark it showed up better.

I started not to share this layout since it isn't one I really put a lot of time and work in to but I figured we all have these kind and if we don't we need to remember it is about the pictures and not all the artwork.

  2. Love what you said Okie. I too need to remember every page does not have to be a masterpiece that takes hours and hours. I will never get caught up with grandbabies pics if I keep doing that. Cute layout and thanks for the reminder.

  4. Very pretty Okie! I need to start scapbooking again. It used to take me days to finish a 2 page LO, because I thought it had to be perfect. You're right though, it is all about the pictures, let's hope I remeber that when I start scrapbooking again!!!
