Today's prompt was to think about the things you usually do on a page - your "rules" for scrapbooking if you will. And then break the rules you set for yourself. I thought about what things I usually do when scrapbooking and then thought about what I could do differently. I used old product - I usually don't seem to go back into the old stuff preferring my newer goodies. I almost always scrap 12x12 so I made this 8 1/2 x 11. I most often stick with one manufacturer on a page because then I know it will all look nice together. So here I mixed a few manufacturers for the papers and embellishments. I NEVER cut photos into shapes so I cut a photo of apples into an oval. It is very rare for me not to journal on a page so I just put the most basic info on this. And finally, I double matted the photo and I usually don't mat photos at all.
The page is a scraplift from Scrapbook Trends Embellish Idea book. The original page on page 82 was by Christa Paustenbaugh.
