scraplifting squealer

Hi ladies! Nichole here. I think I need to clear something up here. I guess some of you don't fully read the posts (Sharon the skimmer) which leads you to assume that everything I post is of my design. It's not! I'm an addicted scraplifter! Much like a shoplifter, I see a page design I like, I take it! To be honest, I'm struggling with my creativity. Designing pages is something I'm working on. I don't feel as a scrapbooker or as an artist that design the page is my strong point. If I want to go anywhere I need to begin designing things on my own.

Until then, if you see something like this:

Or if I use the word "INSPIRATION" I'm hinting that I copied the design of another page. I like to give credit where credit is due, which is why I display the originals when I can. Pictured above is an example of a dyptic photo mosaic I created with my Flickr.com account. The yellow page on the left is by the lovely and very talented Mikaela2005 on Flickr. The green page is my recreation of that, using a photo of my husband.

So, in my latest post proof Nicole commented she liked both of my pages. Only the first page is mine. I explain that within the post, but y'all skim when you read. The second page is by the lovely Rita, whom I met through Scrapologie.com. You can view the original as she posted it here.

Does that clear some things up a bit? I hope so!
