Symmetry & Me

I find it downright silly that even when I get the chance to create one scrapbook page for myself, I still feel the need to be challenged. If I can't find a challenge online to fit what I want to work with, then I end up challenging myself. This page was no different! It was the first page in a long, long time that I created for myself, by myself. You'd think that would be fun and relaxing, right? Well, it was - that and challenging! For some reason, I challenged myself to a symmetrical page. Maybe it's because I'm striving for balance these busy May days? I don't know about that, but nothing is ever symmetrical in my life - not my scrapbook pages, rarely my photography, not the interior design of my house; maybe only that I have to chew m&ms equally & symmetrically (2 greens, one for each side... a red and a brown and a red and a brown... don't ask!) Too much information? Perhaps. =)
So I cut and adhered away at my best attempt at a symmetrical page. Lots of strips and a few buttons as well. I did cheat a little on the photograph I used. Couldn't be that predictable. I hope you enjoy and go for some symmetry in your next page. (If you do, please comment and link!) Being so in balance actually created a whole bunch of new scrapping ideas... maybe I'll have a few new symmetrical ideas for you in a few days!
