What does K.I.S.S stand for.....you may ask?
KEEP IT SUPER SIMPLE
I have to say, that this is definately one of MY very favorite layouts. Not quite sure what makes it so....but if I look at it, I think it is the simplicity of it....just some pattern paper, some pictures and minimal embellishments. We scrapbookers are hoarders, collectors and gatherers...we complain about the amount of paper we have, AND YET, we are unable to stop ourselves from buying more....so really that is another reason why I love this layout. I can take any paper from my favorite collections and easily apply them to this layout. I bet it would look totally different if I did....not only that, but I would also use some of the older stuff to make room for the new. We are inclined to want to put everything on a page...just because it is all soooooo beautiful, we have bought it all to match, and we MUST use it. NO SIRREEEE! don't always be tempted to empty out your stash and attach it to every spare space on the page. I guarantee you that the embellishments you bought to match a certain collection, you will land up using elsewhere where you least expected to. I encourage you to make something simple and using something a little older in your stash. We all LOVE the new stuff, but DON'T FORGET the old. And now, my countdown begins.....can't wait for the Donna Downey classes over at Stamping Bella....I am sooooo super excited and have already put my name down for all of them. Can't wait.....if you have not checked out these classes, you should, you REALLY should.
