Scrapbook pages SHOULD be PERFECT!

Our "there are no scrapbooking police" blog hop continues on day three! Today Jen Gallagher discusses the idea that scrapbook pages SHOULD be PERFECT. She has five awesome reasons why this isn't true. :)

I decided a long time ago, shortly after I started scrapbooking, that my pages were never going to look polished-perfect, as if they were designed by a professional graphic designer. I decided to embrace my homemade feel. I think in many ways it is the imperfection in my pages that make them perfect, to me. I concentrate on details and on making a well-made page... but it's the drop of ink, the slightly torn edge, the wonky (but not crooked) title that make my pages perfectly ME.
