If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then I've mastered the art of praise! I keep pictures of projects I want to copy, and today I had the opportunity to make good use of the "Five" layout from Simple Scrapbooks. I changed the colors and created my own stained glass to mimic the church window where I took the picture.
My daughter is turning 18 on Friday and I've been working to catch up on her scrapbooks to give to her as her present. I was 6 years behind!! When I give it to her, it will come with a card that says, "You can scrapbook your own life from here on out..." Not that I don't enjoy scrapbooking, but I have 3 more kids to catch up on, as well as my own books.
