For me it is called lifting..oops I meant stealing. , well more like borrowing, right? But basically if my page is looking like it needs something more, I usually look at a magazine to lend some inspiration. And 99% of the time I have something that they used on the page in my stash...which just means I need to stop buying stuff

Yeap Chanda! I do a lot of 'lifting'.

Since I print from home, I will take some pics and see which they look better in color or black and white before I print them off. Sometimes that can make the difference for a page.

If the page doesnt look "just" right I add more... more is better right?

I also lift a lot. I will sit at night with pics and paper clip them in the magazine ontop of the page I want to use with them... if you start doing this make sure you paper clip them upside down or the paper clip will scratch your photo. I never use the page I am lifting 100% I usually always change it up by using different papers, embellishments, changing it up to make it more ME.
