Besides having a very cool name, Laura Vegas is a very cool scrapbooker. Here are a few of my faves from her gallery:
The cuteness of the High School Musical Lo is seared into my brain. The combo of stamps, notebook paper and cork make this adorable. It is a lot of little stuff organized in with neat boarders in the most uncluttery of ways. If you had given me the same items to scrapbook with - I'd have messed this LO all up.
The Boy / The Girl Lo is really a great design and great use of the feminine and masculine AL papers. I am totally going to lift this same idea for a Then / Now sort of LO. Or even 2 quotes about the same thing from my boys. Oh, and the little bow in the middle - perfect.
I love the linearness..es on the round LO. The horizontal lines created by the ribbons, the journaling strips and photos really make this LO work beautifully.
I totally love the way the small pink mats work to unify the smaller items on the Love lo. Thats right. I said I love the Love LO.
The Flower Girls LO really caught my eye because of the way the stack of photos on the left balance out the larger photo, title and journaling strips on the right. I am totally lifting this idea for some of my son's soccer photos. I take a bazillion and this looks like a great way to narrow down the stack into a LO. I can get a bazillion down to 5 - right?
Finally, Sarah's room. I heart this lo. I love how clean and unified it is...and there are like 10 pictures on this! Dude, as a pretty cluttery scrapper myself, I am really drawn to LO's that can balance design and lots of photos.
Laura, thanks for the inspiration!
