Fixed Page!

Here is the fixed page I talked about in previous post. Empty space is really nasty in my humble opinion. It needs to be filled in with something even something simple. I almost always use background stamps or watermark images for this reason. And in my quilting I will rarely use solid fabrics. They read empty and on close inspection are empty. I will use tone on tone fabrics which are similar to watermarks or using a background stamp in the same color as the card stock. At first glance you don't notice the design, but on closer inspection it's there and you can see it.

What fun pages, Suzanne! I love your snowman and snow and the sayings. Good advice, too. I was sorry to read about your friend losing her husband, though. Making a special card at the time it is needed and praying for that person is something that is very loving and is exactly what people really do need. The Lord answers prayer in His time, and according to His purposes, thankfully (I always think of Romans 8:28 when I think of these things!)

I trust you will have a good week. I am spending a lot of time at a church camp this week myself but am going to go to a friend's place and try scrap booking for the first time too.
Take care.
Susan
