Mykonos Layout

My first layout post!! Yahoo!!  I started  scrapbooking two years ago and this past year became intrigued with all the beautiful cards that I kept finding online. But I must give credit where credit is due...it was thanks to Rosanne who really inspired and encouraged me. Thank you Rosanne!! As a result, I pushed the scrapping aside but know that I must get back to it with a balanced crafty life.
I have been trying to work on a cruise that my husband and I took two years ago and I found it difficult to find the "perfect layout"... especially
with the hundreds of pictures from which to choose. Recently, I have been slowly investing in  the books "Sketches for Scrapbooking" and taking
classes on "how to". This layout is from one of the books and was completed in a great class that I took from Joanne. It has taken me a while to just look at the background and worry about the pictures later. I like the way it turned out...crisp and clean. What do you think?

  4. This is a great idea. I've never done a layout either. I just gave you the versatile blogger award because you have stepped out of the box. THanks for sharing...maybe I'll do my first layout too...scary...maybe not. :)
