I need to ask for opinions, seeing that I am apparently incapable of deciding myself. Regarding the LO I just posted on the previous page, which one do you think looks better, the black or the white background?
And another silly question (I can't believe that I have to ask this!) - This photo was taken on 31st December 2016, just before the clock ticked over to 1st January 2017. Should my title be Happy New Year 2016 or Happy New Year 2017? I guess I could save myself the confusion and title it "New Years Eve 2016".
AussieMeg - love it - and prefer the white because it draws focus to the photo. The black is stunning, but because there is contrast up with the bubbles/glasses your eye gets pulled there. grammadee - lovely christmas photos and layouts, I don't know how you are so up to date? And the card is beautiful. They always are from you
Meelleek - you did an amazing job on the December album!
linda - your NY's cards are so pretty! Great title work on the Curry page.
elaynef - the Love layout is beautiful and those pictures are amazing!
AussieMeg - what a beautiful picture! The papers and embellishments were made for it! I'm loving your NYs page - the blues are so pretty and the glitter paper is perfect for champagne bubbles and I agree with grammadee about the black background for the same reason.
grammadee - Love the clock on the NYs page! I like the tags and the cute little Teddy on your December page and love all the blues and layering on your Santa page. Oooh, I love the double embossing on the card! The christmas pages are so festive..I'm loving that tree paper.
Chinagirl828 - congrats finishing your December album. The cover is lovely.
elaynef , I love all the beautiful blues you used on your pages with Ben and the other grandkids. Really nice photography too!
nylene , great journaling! and a really lovely page. Those little gift packages are so much fun!
AussieMeg , wow! the colors are just amazing - just perfect for your beach photos! Really, wow! And I'm glad you went with the white for your New Year page. I like the drama of the black background, but I agree that the photo got lost on that one. My eyes go right to the photo with the white background.
grammadee , great background paper on your New Year page! But my favorite element is that foil snowflake paper - love the sparkle! And the smiles on the faces of your grandsons on Santa's lap is priceless! Really amazing clusters on your group photo Christmas pages - I'm so impressed and inspired by them - really great textures!
That page is GORGEOUS, msliz! LOVE the colours, the design, that spray of dots and flowers, the butterfly! Gorgeous, I say! Welcome back to scrapping. I hope this is the first in an avalanche of pages.
elaynef - the Love layout is beautiful and those pictures are amazing!
Thanks yall for the compliments on the photography. The boys' mother, my dd#3, is a professional photographer in lubbock, texas. She specializes in newborns. As you can imagine, we are very proud of her talent and hard work.
The boys are so good to cooperate with her and also with me and dh as we all have a camera attached to us much of the time. One thing for sure, I don't have to worry about running out of something to scrap.

I almost hate to post these pages. I did want the story added to My History Project, but they certainly didn't turn out like I planned. I will probably redo them sometime, and I NEVER redo a page. This was for 12 Days of Christmas #11, based on ad. Unfortunately the only part of the layout that still looks like the ad was the ribbon hearts at the top. ...oh well.

msliz , I love your page, Incognito. You frames with perfect tiny Nuvo dots are beautiful. That bottom photo/negative is so cool. Your black and white floral embellishments are such a nice touch. Very classy layout.
Meelleek , your Pierced Ears layout is adorable. What a sweet baby. I love the pastels and especially those tiny pastel bows. Beautiful. I love the clusters on your Cousins layout. The blues and greens are so pretty layered together. I left love in the gallery on your DD pages.
grammadee , you are back to your speedy scrapping. Glad you are recovered from the trip and are hard at the scrapping! You have love in the gallery.
AussieMeg , I agree with the majority. I love the white background that lets the photo really pop. Wonderful page. Left love in the gallery.
KikiPea, your layout is gorgeous. I love the design and the way you have layered so many beautiful patterns together. Your dog is beautiful, by the way. Such a clever title and fun embellishments. Fabulous job!!

@kellem I LOVE those baby pages--sooo cute! And that meme page is a wonderful way to preserve those inspirational quotes. I think I left love for your other pages in the Gallery. Loved your DD.
KikiPea , those dog pages are darling. Love the photos and that dog in antlers is definitely smiling! Great layering, too. Great take on stinkerbelle 's sketch. Love the bows. And the roadtrip page is awesome. Love that your photos capture so many of the details of the trip. Great take on THAT sketch, too.
elaynef, I love the blues on your pages with those photos, and the multicoloured stripes are perfect to represent the popsicles! So glad you have your room back and you have time to play along.
nylene, I am loving the stories of the Christmases of your childhood, and I am sure your kids and grandkids will love them too. Love the screen prints. And that diecut heart border is really cool, too.
This is the title page for my Hawaii 1989 album. Now I must point out that I deserve none of the credit for this page, I used a template and all I did was add some extra elements and the photos - my only skill was to choose a really cool template to buy!
