    I use instagram photos WAY too much. Sadly, it's because my camera isn't pulled out as often with me working full time now so I take pictures in the most convenient way that I can so I can still scrap those everyday moments.

    I cant stick to one kit and actually like my page.
    I cant do clean and simple. I feel my pages lack personality. I have to have clutter. ( how others rock the C and S amazes me and i love to stare at their pages)
    I hate when the color brown is overused in kits.
    I happen to like unthreaded buttons:O
    I have to have a huge credit list LOL.

    i can´t work with one kit either... it´s not possible and i find my pages boring ;)
    i can´t scrap BIG pages or even a FULL page, i really hate that!
    my credit list is growing from page to page i think it´s that awesome stuff here!
    my style changed alot over the last years and when i look at my pages from the beginning i´ve to laugh... very hard! it´s awesome how things change and i´m happy that i learned so much from awesome scrappers/designers!!!

    I use paint on every single page. Every. Single. Page. If I don't I just stare at the page wondering why I just can't be happy with the finish and then I eventually break down and add more paint.

    I don't ever have enough scrapable pictures. And I don't like scrapping holiday pages....really. October-January is the worst for me! I'm not much of a themey scrapper and top that with my usual photo issues...blech.

    P.S. I love, love, love Christmas. Everything abt it. I avoid like the plague, however, SCRAPPING Christmas photos. It's like I've exerted all this energy beforehand that I just can't muster up the 'strength' to deal with it post-December 25. :giggle

    I actually like making pages about me and hubby or just me, however I've never printed a single one. My son has multiple books of layouts about his life and we have none about just the two of us. (maybe I should use the next free Shutterfly album for that? hmmm)

    I've never ordered or printed anything. I'm so picky and only want to order full books... so I've yet to finish one to my satisfaction.

    Hahaha - I have no idea how to leave a white space page white. No idea! I love how elegant, sophisticated and arty they look, but when I try to scrap them, this is what is going through my mind:

    "...ok, I'm going to have to pay to have this printed, whether there is something there or not, and the saying goes waste not, want not, so let's see if I can find a few more photos to stick on there...and then that needs a couple of elements to balance, maybe some extra journaling, wordart or a quote..."

    and voilà - no white space.


    So, basically I'm cheap.

    However, if I printed at home, I think I could probably be able to scrap white space... but that's because my ink is always low...

    Sigh!

    I get all excited too!

    And the GSO thing --- especially the GSO threads at DST, they almost always make me think that too! But the GSO blog, hardly ever.
