I love the simplicity of the page,Alexa.....and I have loads of those old 'snapshots'....though sadly some of them have a tint that is more 'orange' than sepia!
For me it's the white space that's intimidating....I love 12 x 12 patterned papers.....but I'm trying to come out of my comfort zone and use it more.


Oh my goodness Alexa I must have been getting in on your wavelength this morning, I've just finished a layout for PDF Friday with a vertical and horizontal line of dots just like you have in your layout, how weird is that?

Again I strugled with the white space, whilst I love your style and others who have the white space down to a T, I'm never very comfortable doing it myself and usually end up just putting something in to fill up the space( but then again I am a bit of a hoarder and like to fill up gaps)!


Very, very lovely Alexa. How I wish I could do simple (in the very best sense of the word) the way you do.


I'm very impressed with the patterned paper usage!
I love it when scrap pages lead to more pages and new/different stories. I scrap the same photo quite often if it leads to a new angle of the original story.
I think you have combined the ribbon very well today :-)


I love it!!! I hope you don't mind if I scrap lift this.


Hello Lesley! I'd be honoured if you wanted to scraplift - please feel free ...


Lovely page Alexa, simple yet effective :)

Love the colours of the papers and how you've cut the circles and used them around the photo. He's really growing up!
