Embrace imperfection

My scrappy mojo has also been a little stuck lately, so I thought I'd work on designing a perfectly imperfect page. That way if there were any little mojo-missing speedbumps along the way I could just absorb them and keep going.

This is probably one of the greatest scrapbooking lessons my dear friend (and fellow design team member) Linda has taught me - there are no mistakes, just new creative turns in the road to completion. Yes, there were a few "bumps" as I went, but mostly I just kept working around them.

For example, after I drew the line around the upper right corner of the photo, I decided that I really didn't like it. Instead of starting over or being unhappy with it, I decided to incorporate it into the page and use it as a place to ground my journaling.

Here's my scrappy challenge to you this week: Embrace imperfection. :)
