Real Scrapbookers...

make layouts that they don't love...from time to time.

Here's a layout I made last night:


I am just not too happy with it. I feel like it looks cluttered and busy. I think I personally would have liked it better if those two bird's (rub-on's) on the large orange heart were in the bottom left hand corner instead. Oh well.

The layout uses the awesome Summer's End collection from Fancy Pants Designs. That cardstock in the back is a collaboration between Fancy Pants and Core'dinations.

Here are some close up's:




Just thought I'd keep it real today. :) I know we all do it...make layouts we are not entirely happy with.

Hope you have a FANTASTIC day!!!

Well, I think it looks great, but that's not what's important. I guess part of finding your own personal style is knowing what you don't like!

Well I wish I could make this kind of LO in my good days!

I love it... And I love the title, I can just picture your daughter saying this :)

I like this one too! But, I know I've made layouts that I just want to throw out. Props to you for showing something you're not proud of~even if you don't like it :)

Ursula said...

it does happen to all of us doesn't it. Thing is, often the ones I like least others love. Go figure. In your case, I love what you came up with.

Shemaine Smith said...

Oh I've made layouts like those too! Love your honesty.

Christa said...

Yep, I do that too! It's still very pretty and a memory documented, so that's all that matters!

Danielle said...

This layout is great, but I understand what it feels like when you don't like your own work 100%. We are our worst own critics.

I love this layout! But I know what you mean, I think we are just too hard on ourselves sometimes. The banner is just fabulous, and I love all the birds!
