Thanks to all my scrapbooking sisters for the wonderful comments made about my layout.  I did keep it simple to spotlight the cart and the paper pack and give an easily reproducible (is that a real word?) item to help inspire those holiday layouts.  I love to do the extremely decorative layouts as well, but I don't put them in a scrapbook.  To me, those LO are more for home decor and special events or techniques.  I will usually scrapbook those same photos on a less decorative layout for my scrapbook.  In my family albums, I want the photos to be the first thing you notice on my pages.  I use CM scrapbooks exclusively for my family memories and I don't want to include items that can put dents or scratches on them by rubbing. The best part of our craft is that everyone can do it their way!  It is your book to do as you wish.  Don't you love that freedom?  I think there is a place for all the artistic and decorative items around and I use them often-at least I've spent a small fortune on them!  I still have so much to learn about the techniques and tricks of the media.  Isn't it fun?
