As I was strolling through the Oscar de la Renta Five Decades of Style exhibit last week, I enjoyed the wide variety of styles and color combinations that represented the range of fashions created by Mr. de la Renta throughout his career. I didn't once stop and think that the diverse displays seemed mismatched or incompatible or uncoordinated. It was simply a wonderful representation of wide-ranging styles created over a period of many years influenced by an assortment of inspiration.
And that's exactly how I think of my scrapbooks. It doesn't matter to me if my pages are not all coordinated or if two layouts that are side by side in the album have contrasting colors. The pages are meant to be a representation of our life and memories, our wide-ranging activities with a myriad of stories in the mix. This selection of layouts that I created last week definitely showcases that type of variety. These layouts complete the Jamaica section of our 10th Anniversary Cruise Album.
FUN to scrapbook with lots of colors and patterns and embellishments to create unique and varied layouts! And I doubt anyone flipping through my albums will be bothered by the fact that none of them match.
