I love artsy papers because they complete my
pages without all the clutter- the way I like it- and my layouts still
look complete. That makes my job easy! I love adding lots of photos and
journaling- not stressing over where elements are placed. So artsy
papers are fabulous!
I made a layout in about 20 minutes about things my son likes right now.
The hardest part was getting him to sit with me and make the list!

My name is Nicky Hurt. I am: a wife, mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, aunt, sister-in-law, digi scrapbooker, scrapbooking class collector, scrapbooking supply collector, roadside photographer, Air Force wife, hiker, camper, outdoorsman (when it's warm!), Alaskan, creator, TV watcher, crocheter, PEO Sister, design team member, and reader. I find that I'm getting more and more neurotic, and slightly more sarcastic every year.
" ...but the biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make while doing this. I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of the three on them sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages 6, 4, and 1. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in a hurry to get on to the next things: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less." -Anna Quindlen
