Scrapbooking Here I Come!

Hey Everybody! Like I told you on previous posts, I really want do more scrapbooking because I have sooooooo many pictures and they are all hidden away in my computer for no one to see but my self.

I was inspired by a layout I saw on the Close to My Heart summer catalog. I just sort of flipped to a page and decided to try it out. It's not exactly like the layout. . .I just took a few ideas and created my own layout.

I really would like to learn more about scrapbooking. Right now, I can't come up with my own layout without looking at a book, magazine or blog. My goal is to come up with my own layouts one day.

The picture is a photo that my daughter took of herself. I thought it had a artsy look to it so I decided to use the photo. For those of you who don't know what a "poser" is. . .well, it's someone who is trying to act like someone they really are not. It's a teenage lingo that my kids use all the time to say that someone is being a "fake". LOL! Well, when I saw this photo. . .the first thing came to mind was that she was being a "poser".

Layout recipe:

Paper: Autumn Leaves designer paper, SU cardstock in black, creamy caramel, and cranberry crisp
Accessories: I don't know the brand of the big flowers (I threw away the label), JoAnn heart brads, Prima, Inc (small flowers), Verse sticker by Cloud Design (Fiskar), Metal date tags by JoAnn, Alpha Title created on the Craft Robo.
