Imaginisce Designer Intro... 10 things you MIGHT not know about me...

If your coming over from the Imaginisce blog, thank you! :)
If you are just stopping by, be sure to check out the "10 things you don't know about Penny" on the Imaginisce blog!
Some of my scrappy friends may already know a few of these from layouts... but it was VERY fun to write up, and I hope you get a chuckle or two!

I am thrilled to be a part of the team for a second year!
It is a FABULOUS company! It's the people that make it super special to be a part of this team!

If you aren't a follower of my blog, I encourage you! ANY giveaway I have, all followers are included in the drawing!

Since I have already been a part of the team this last year, I thought I would show MY top 5 favorite layouts from 2010!

This LO was from a sketch... Those squares filled the page on the sketch.
Leave it to me to find a way to add LOTS of "white" space!
Can you tell I am in LOVE with the Birthday Bash Banners! For this, I went with a twist on the fall theme... it's not fall. :)
This one was just fun to do!
And my 5th place... I couldn't decide. So I am going with two, from the same line (To Love and Cherish).
This one was about my husband...
And this one is one is of my best friend and her daughter. (I took the picture too. :) )
The flowers are handmade, before "Roly Posies" came out! :)
OH, and I thought of an #11! I kinda think scrapbooking without journaling is silly! {ducking} :)
I judge scrapbooking at a local fair, and the entrants KNOW how I am, and know that if "where, when, and who" isn't SOMEWHERE on the page (or on the back even) they could lose a blue!
You will RARELY see a layout of mine without journaling. And if it doesn't based on design, I journal on the back! I want the people related to me 100 years from now to know why I did this! Otherwise they will just pretty pages stacked in a antique store like so many photos today!

Thanks for stopping by!
Be sure to comment here and on the Imaginisce blog to have a chance of winning something! YAY!

sleeplesswonder said...

I loved reading your 10 things.
I agree about the jornalling part, if I don't have some jornalling on front I at least put the date, and who on back, I do it with my sons school pics as well.

Yes, I agree that the journaling is the heart of the page. I too want future generation to know why I created the page and who is in it.

Michelle M said...

Just gorgeous I love the colors and all the neat elements that you use!

nadine said...

I love your layouts! I am sad to admit I am one of those people who can't figure out how to leave white spaces on my LO's. I compulsively cover every inch. This is something I definately need to work on because I love the look of your LO's.

joni said...

Congrats on another year with Imaginisce!!! I love your style and love your layouts! TFS

It was fun to hop over to your blog - will definitely visit again!

Cynthia B. said...

You're a scrapper after my own heart...to me, written words on a scrapbook page are so important! Sure, a picture can tell a thousand words, and I love love to play with product, but a page isn't complete without telling a story too.
So great you're on the DT again. Love the pages you shared today - looking forward to more for Imaginisce! :) TFS, Tracey!
