Getting Serious About Design

I decided that I really want to take my scrapping to the next level. I don't want my layouts to be hit or miss anymore. So I am going to start studying design principles, so I can make more pleasing layouts. I am taking two online classes. One is Design Workshop by Lisa Dickinson at Ella Publishing and the other is Building Pages by Debbie Hodges at Get It Scrapped. I am happy with my pages, but I want to improve and I believe that I have room for growth. This is the first layout using a grid design. It is the first lesson in Lisa's book. I really love it. First time I have ever used a grid before :-)

All of the pp pieces came from this kit except for the background. Journaling: If you knew how much grandma loved you, you'd know you were the luckiest girl in the world.
