I seem to have a minimalistic style to my scrapbooking. I was reading a book, and it seems like all of the examples have tons of pictures and frills. I like the way they look in the books, but I just can't bring myself to add too much without feeling like I am cluttering the page.
This page is for the ring. I wanted the idea of the box. It took me a while to settle on this background since I wanted the colors to go well. I tried a couple of different photos, and then thought I should add one of Jerry & me, but in the long run, I settled for a stamp to fill the empty space. I even worked on borders, but still thought it was a bit much. What do you think? Should I add something more?
"The card was wonderful/ The question inside a surprise/ Then came the Little Blue Box/ I tried to keep my hands from shaking/ As I unwrapped it/ I tried to keep the tears from falling/ As I took out the velvet box/ I held my breath, not knowing what to expect/ And there it was/ The most perfect ring/ I think we both cried at that point/ 14 February 2007"
