TVweekly this past Friday had an excellent Scrapbook page idea. I just love it and plan to try it out sometime in the future. (The site is free but you need to register). Go to Tamara Berg's Building Bridges. She puts a Scrapbook page together using thread. She threaded the bottom left corner added some beads and the result...the threads look like a suspension bridge. I can also see using cream thread and making the corner of the page look like netting for a marine feel.
Check it out, you might fall in love and it's so easy.
