No Defined Style

I have difficulty defining my scrapbook style and I think these 2 layouts are pretty good evidence why.  I did them both last night and they are both very different.  This first layout is based on Sketchy Thursdays GDT sketch and it has a whole lotta stuff on it. The base paper is Basic Grey Curio, the pink pp is some old Black Market Paper Society, the overlays are Fancy Pants Dancing Girl. I misted, used a Glitz rub-on, added some Making Memories Glitter Clings and butterflies, the pink butterfly and flowers are Recollections, the dress form and little banner stamps are by Lawn Fawn. Oh and that fabulous crocheted lace I bought at Jo Ann Fabrics.  The banner reads Favorite Skirt.
This next layout is for Scrap Your Stash, the Pagerize this Challenge #9.  This is another layout of Marin, it's not a fantastic picture or an elaborate layout but it has such a  cute story behind it.  The journaling reads, "Marin was playing in the living room.  She ran to me and told me she needed to show me her Snowman.  I followed her and she had 3 couch cushions piled on top of each other.  This was her Snowman.  She then posed for this picture with her Snowman."  The couch and lamps are cut from Nikki Sivils and actually the snowman is punched out from some of that paper as well.  The alphas are some old Making Memories, the base paper is WeR so I didn't even stitch it myself, and I have no idea where the fuzzy ball trim came from.

And here is Karen's LO that I  pagerized.

wow!!! i think your style should be labeled "fabulous". =) I love these layouts. the lawn fawn stamps add that little something. and those fuzzy balls, those were some stash I think we got from the LSS garage sale. they look familiar. Fancy Pants I think.
wish I would have been scrapping with you last night. i needed the zzzzzzzz's though.

I can never describe my style either- maybe we should go with eclectic! I think its better than all our LOs looking identical. I look at some peoples Los and their style is SO defined that their LOs are almost identical

Thanks for Pagerizing me! i love how you did the title and the Nikki Silvis paper- I have the stamps that go with that line- must dig them out LOL

Oh wow, they are all lovely, I guess your style is "versatile", you are good at everything you know!

The same happens to me! Both of them are fabulous! I agree with Karen, I prefer to adjust my styles to the papers and photos. Have a nice day!

They are both soooo different, and I love 'em both!!! I'm kinda the same way too, just go with an idea and hopefully I like the end result when it's done!

Don't worry about not having a defined style. I don't have one either...just go with the flow...you've been doing great so far!

The layouts are fab, I have the same problem that I don't have a defined style, but I think that makes each page a fun new adventure!
The story about the cushion snowman is sooooo cute! I love how kids see the world! x
