I’m usually a simple scrapbooker. I love my photos and where possible add stories to my pages. I don’t tend to write long stories, but hopefully what I do write, is an insight into our life and what the photos are about. To start my pages, I nearly always start off with a pre-designed page and build on them. Working with only a few photos at a time. I then tweak the pages to suit the photos I am using. It’s a bit like building a house, I need a plan to follow and then I’m off and running.
And that’s also why I love the challenges that my wonderful pixels2pages team set for us. I always try and have a go, it brings me out of my comfort zone and makes me look… oh sooo creative! I love it when people tell me at my digital classes, that I must be so creative to do pages like that. I give a little laugh and direct them to the pixels2pages.net website and show them how they too can build a page.

Pick a challenge, any challenge, by going to Inspire Me > Challenges and try one. You’ll be so glad you did. Pick one that you think you couldn’t possibly do. Challenge yourself.
