Why I don't post Layouts

In the 14 months I've had this blog I think I have only posted two LO's and they were both for blog hops.  It's not that I don't do them, I've been scrapping 14 years, and have done hundreds of pages, it's just that I don't follow the "trend" of scrapbooking with the ultra elaborate embellishments, and layering, etc.  I stick to a very simple look with the pictures being the main item on the page, (and rather boring by industry standards,) therefore I don't post my LO's.  I've got to admit that this one is even a little more simplistic than usual for me.  I'm entering it in Emma's (My Creative Time) Throwback Thursday challenge.  The theme for this challenge is "sports".
I actually had a card in the works for the hubby for Valentine's that had a lot of sports terms like, "touchdown, score, homerun, goal, etc."  on it (because he's a sporty kinda guy and that'll grab his attention,) but I was afraid the suggestive nature of the wording might offend someone, but I've got to tell you, I think he's gonna like it ;)

I took a class with Shelby Dredge from Embellish It, last summer and she made the joke..."who else but scrapbookers would spend $50 on embellishments and papers to scrap $2.00 worth of pictures?"  She was so right.  So, what's the worst you've probably ever done as far as spending on a LO?  I don't think I've ever spent more than $5-7 on a page, and I mostly do double page LO's.  Be honest!


  1. I love your layout. This is more my style on layouts too. I keep them fairly flat with a few embellishments but I try to keep the pictures the main focus. I don't normally spend a lot of money on a specific layout. I think that some of my Disney ones have been my most expensive as I have bought a few layered stickers that have cost a few dollars before but I doubt more than $5-$6, but I could be wrong. Anyway, I love this! Great job! hugs- Glora

  2. Hey great layout. As far as apending on a layout i don't go to town and spend just for a layout cause i mainly do cards. Thats a whole nother story. I just use whats on hand and believe me i have plenty on hand. But now to just go craft buying i just grab what i like and go from there with no particular thing in mind.
