One in the "not love" pile

This is one of those layouts that I like but I don't really love.

I wanted the sparkly letters to blend rather than really show up but I think perhaps they blend too much.  I am using up some really old stash with some of these layouts though so that does make me happy.  The pink strip under the photos is a really wide organza ribbon that I twisted and it looks better in real life and gives some much needed texture.  I also threaded a little of it through the felted leaf embellishment to connect the 2 parts.

The photos are just random autumn walk ones where I just happened to catch my youngest neice and B at the right time.  I can't believe how much B's hair has grown in the last few months from when these photos were taken.  It's one of the other things I love about scrapping in that I look at photos more often than I would do ordinarily and so I notice many more things.  If this was pre-scrapping, I would order the photo, get it back, look at it and then put it back in the envelope, probably not looking at it again for years.  I definitely interact with my photos a lot more now and for many reasons, especially my depression, that's a really really good thing :-)

Bye for now


  1. what a wonderful page! the colors are fantastic! :)

  2. I agree with you, scrapping does give you the luxury of looking at photos again and again
