Ok here goes...

I did this page today, so far out of the few I've done this is my favorite.




I can't wait till I can accumulate some of the cutting tools, and punches, and more elaborate embellishments.

Oh, that's cool, LMPG!! And you said you were bad at this!!! That's way better than anything I've ever managed to come up with!

Jersey is so photogenic even if she is master of the stinkeye!

Thank you, good grief it took me hours to do that
I took the advice, of laying things out before attaching, it took hours to come up with something I liked. With limited supplies this was the best I could come up with.

...ours had some stuff, mostly baby pages and embellishments.
There were no Alphabet packages left for words, no rub ons, no flowers, no cutters or punches. I did manage to scoop the last pkg of tags.
Stopped in there again yesterday, and they still haven't restocked the shelves:sad:...

Thank you
I'm not sure of the right term either, I just call it a page, I'm new at this scrapbooking stuff. I heard the term Quilling and have been trying to find out what that means.

Thanks rainbow, no I didn't ask, cuz it was only a few minutes after the Stokes incident, I just wanted to get some stuff and get the heck outta there. Besides the girl was chewing gum "smack" style, really loud and with her mouth open and that just grosses me out ..

LOL ....from the sounds of her you probably would have got "I dunno" for an answer.

For some reason, when you posted, there was no picture. It looked like maybe you forgot to put it on there.

I see it now. It looks fabulous! I don't know what you were talking about not being inspired or your stuff not looking as nice as some you see. I think this page looks really lovely!

LMPG, the image came up in both posts, the original and the second. It looks great.
I was given a scrapbook about 7 or 8 years ago and I never took it out of the box. It got sold at my yard sale last fall for a ridiculously low price. If I had known things could look that good, maybe I would have tried, but I am not crafty in that way.
Do you only hvae one Dollarama in town? Crap, we have about 6 all within close proximity to each other. I always noticed they had tons of stuff in their craft isle for scrapbooking. I would definately try back again. Although not everything is still $1, never is it much more and compared to large craft stores, they are unbelievable for selection and price.
Good work. Post more when you do it!

Thank you AG, actually the first post did disappear eventually, I didn't realize that if I deleted it from my photobucket after posting on a site it would disappear...(my lack of computer knowledge astounds me). Trust me my first few pages, don't compare to this one. I took my time, and tried different layouts before I attached anything. This is my first "good" one.

Thank you quincymycat, and yes I think there is more than one Dollarama in Calgary, I'm just unfamiliar with their locations so I stick to the one I know.
There is also one in Airdrie, where I recently moved from, so the next time I go up there to collect the rent, I'm going to check them out too.

Thank you Breeze for the video link!
Next time I'm in the city I am going to look for a quilling kit. That looks like a lot of fun actually and could save a lot of money in embellishment kits!
