My life has always been hectic, and still is today. So once in a while I like to design something peaceful and simple.  Simple elegance.  My products tend to lean toward finding peace in life and nature, and not letting the outside influences control how we choose to live; but finding inner peace and living by the standards we feel are important.  To that, I created A Scrap of Simplicity, coming soon.  Most of the elements could go into any page, but I am partial using them with the Pastel Bird Papers so I added those into the Bundle.  Here are some pages designed by our lovely and talented Creative Team:  Starting with the 12x12 papers, Mystampin used the Patel Bird Papers and added A Scrap of Simplicity elements and WordArt to create this fabulous page about her cat.  I love how he is looking up at the birds!

Judyinsd utilized the same Pastel Bird page, but recolored it to go with her image.  Simple, beautiful, and serene, it shows perfectly how adaptable this kit is!

I love how Gina blended her photo into the Pastel Bird Paper and added elements from A Scrap of Simplicity, making this page all about the shoreline.  I need to scrap lift this myself! 

Jana designed this page around her very lovely daughter, and I love how she used the clipping mask to show her coming out of the frame, and the splat in the elements to use as water at her feet!  Creative and colorful, it shows yet another artistic way to use this kit.

OK, this image by judyinsd needed the entire page to show off!  What a perfect way of using the elements and papers to show the simple elegance of these Egrets in this amazing photo!

Wow, I have several images of birds in my backyard, and flohboch just showed me how I can scrap them. This is stunning! I love the balance of this page, and the colors just make that photo pop!

I think you should all know how fun it is for me to work with such artistic ladies!  The pages they come up with, like this one by mystampin, are simply awe inspiring.   I hope they are for you as well!

Bunnyfreak designed this fabulous page called Iamnotspoiled.... not for one minute do I believe that!  But who wouldn't spoil this little darling?  I know I would!

And using the Letter Papers (8.5x11 inch), lawyerlyn created this wonderful collection of family images arranged and stacked beautifully!  Love the quote added to this page!

And I took this photo of the crane while in Africa, and thought it would be cute to add it to the page!  So here is my use of the Pastel Bird Papers!
