Do not reinvent the wheel every time.


You know that old saying
"Do not reinvent the wheel"?

We scrapbookers simply love to put too much pressure on our already heavy shoulders. Yup. To be creative is not that you have to start from zero to hero, every time you sit in front of the table looking for your next layout.
If you found something that looks great, make you feel great after it done, why shouldn't you use it again? It is not a crime, and certainly not a shame at all.

So.......
After I finished the layout above (look at the details down here):





I love it !
So I make one more today using the same recipe......


The details :




Sureeeeee.......you must be challenged to think of something new and refreshing every time you go scrapbooking. And I don't say this to make you look down on your spirit. I just want to remind you, don't do the reinventing thing, every time.
Just be happy with some recipes that will always make you feel good....and you can use them again...and again....just like your little black dress.

Happy scrapping!
