This leads me into a sort of brainstorming session then, to discover what I can do to make the page a little better. You can always manipulate what you already have done with simple things like ink and ribbon or even metal embellies. I will be posting before and after (as long as I can create something I am proud to post!) when I complete this task, hoping that it helps someone else out there transform a not so great page into a work of art!
As a side note, I just want to say how super excited I am to have a netbook! Hubby just bought me one yesterday and I love, love, love it! It is so tiny, and will help me be active in the forums I belong to. Another bonus: I don't have to go back and forth from the computer area downstairs to the craft room upstairs to print out sketches to work from. I can have it up on my computer screen! Next step: another printer to make my picture printing as easy!
