I started scrapping oh, about eight years ago, and boy have times changed! So many more fun scrap goodies available, and my skills have certainly evolved.
The reason I decided to start re-doing my pages is because I now scrap 8 x 8 and I started out 12 x 12, and I find those albums to be so big and heavy. Well, that and the fact that I cringe when I look at my old pages! So I started a challenge called Extreme Makeover a few months ago over at Two Peas, and a few people have joined me along the way. (I think most people think I'm insane to be re-making old pages, though! But that's okay because I'm having fun!)
I'm not necessarily going to re-do ALL my old pages (I have almost 30 albums full of layouts from back when I was pretty new at scrapping). Just every now and then to throw something new into my scrap routine.
So here's my latest re-do. It's the opening page for my scrapbook about a trip Down Under I took back in 1993. The page below is (obviously) the "before" version. I was too lazy to scan it twice and stitch the whole 12 x 12 page, but you can get the idea of what the page looked like before.
