2009 Layout

Thought I better figure out how to load pictures to the blog - just to prove that I actually do create masterpieces, not just talk about creating them.

During 2008 and 2009 I was on the Design Team for Better Scrapbooking. I decided not to reapply for 2010 as I wanted to focus on new opportunities and getting some pieces published here in NZ and overseas. (Although, I didn't actually apply in 2009, I was automatically 'rehired'). This layout is done with one of the monthly kits I was sent to work with last year. I really like these candid shots of my friends and I at the beach one evening and I'll let you in on one of my favourite things - fish 'n' chips at the beach (it's the best way to have them I think). The layout is very simple, partly because I don't like my photos to be overwhelmed by the embellishments and partly because I wanted to stick with using only the items supplied (plus stamps). I really enjoyed working on the design team as you are challenged to work predominantly with the pieces in the kit and it stretches your abilities. I put myself in the place of the kit subscribers and thought that if I was purchasing the kits every month I would want the designers to stick with the product supplied and not use additional items, so as a design team member I kept that in mind.

Once I have finally figured out how to manage the beast that is my blog I will upload some more examples.
