so, when it comes to scrapping, i tend to follow these "rules" that are probably just part of who i am and define in one way or another, my style. BUT i also like scrapping a silly photo, just one that goes well with a cute kit i just bought or a page with no photo at all. so this is probably as far as i go as thinking outside the box. maybe this is why i also love taking on some challenges and seeing how far i can go without sacrificing my style and what makes me feel good.
i scrap because i like it, i feel good about the pages i create and i know i am telling my family's story and someday they will appreciate what they have. they'll probably enjoy the photos, the stories behind those photos and i certainly doubt that they'll mind at all it's on a 12x12 space.
here are some of my new pages and so much for thinking outside the box! lol!
and for my attempt to thinking outside the box: one with no photo *grins*
i also have 2 new freebies that you can download if you like. i've been attempting to create some frames and masks
for my own use but if you think they can help you be creative on your pages, go ahead and grab them.
