Ever have a page layout that you've started and didn't like. So, you Un-Du'd the page and start over. I've been doing that with this page since February. I found some great papers at my favorite scrappy store Cat's Creations, by Daisy Bucket Designs. I'm cutting circles, making mats...but it's not flowing. You know the feeling when something crafty isn't in the groove. So, I put it away. A couple months ago, I was out cropping at Cat's. Pulled out the page. Decided it's the paper that's not making me happy. Un-du the entire page (yes I saved the cut paper for another project or card), BoBunny had just released "Sophia" and it seemed so appropriate for the photo I was cropping. Bought me some Sophia and started on the page. Again, still not flowing..crop is over, packed it up and put it away.
Yesterday, I pulled out the page again and yes; un-du'd it AGAIN. Started tweeking, cut this, turned that and stepped away for the evening. Picked up where I left of this morning..AHHA! Muse filled me with creative inspiration, that and some rockin' blogs and some crafty friends (I luuuv you!). I had my glossy accents, stickles,by Ranger, my Prima flowers, my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, my Tim Holtz Distressed Sizzix Die..I was on a ROLL. And this is my finished product.
Hopefully I'll get some more pages uploaded. My goal is to get the kids studio pictures scrapped for their albums. Then I'll start to work on their projects, plays, music recitals and etc...
