We are Steph and Angie - sisters who love to scrapbook. We don't know design, we aren't color experts and we usually only get to scrapbook a few times a year. But, we love our families and scrapbooking our memories with them so here we are!

We'll try not to bog you down with long supply lists and explanations (half the time we can't remember what we used or it's such old stuff that you'd never find it anywhere anyway!)

Please feel free to "scrap-lift" any of our ideas that strike your fancy, and if you are a scrapbooker with your own blog, please link back to us!

Adding Doodles

I've had a couple of posts lately where I showed how I added interest to titles with hand drawn embellishing.  As I flipped through Alarik's album the other day, I noticed how bland this page appeared to me. 

I had never like the writing above the two photos on the left side of the page.  It seemed too small and just didn't stand out enough.
So, I pulled the pages out of their protectors and did some jazzing it up with nothing more than a couple scraps of cardstock and a fine tipped Sharpie.  What do you think of the change?
I had started out just flipping through Alarik's album for fun.  Then I started to notice several pages with no date which drove me nuts so I pulled those out to add the date.  I do not typically go back and change or remake pages but I'm glad I took the time to improve this one because I like it a lot better this way.
