A Note from Aly

I love Avital’s fun scrapbooking style— innovative designs, great use of color, lots of white space, and just enough cute embellishments. I chose this page of hers because I love her take on the basic grid design. I took that concept and changed it up a bit, maintaining the unified spaces between elements, the stitched border around the outside, and the three circular elements reminiscent of her accent with three scallops. I also like how her title reaches across her entire page to act as an anchor, so I included the chickie paper strip on mine. Since I had a great jumping off point my page only took about 15 minutes, and I’m so happy with the results.

Thanks, Avital, for your wonderful inspiration in our Flickr gallery. Keep ‘em coming!
