Sugar & Spice

Sometimes a challenge is just what I need to get going. I've really been out of the habit of creating scrapbook pages. I find that the hardest part is getting started. If I wait until I'm "in the mood", it's so easy to put it off.

I came across a challenge on this blog to use stickers from more than one line on the same layout. Stickers have been in and out of popularity with scrapbookers. In the early days of current scrapbooking (people were keeping scrapbooks long before my time), stickers were used with great abandon. I once saw the phrase "sticker sneeze" to describe that approach, and it fits perfectly. I've done many pages that way myself!

I've wanted for some time to create a page around this photo. She has such a sweet expression here, and the backdrop of flowers is perfect. I'll be linking this post to the challenge just for fun, so I will list credits below for the products I used.

It's amazing what fun can be had with a few stickers and some paper!

Till next time!
