It was while I was at the clothesline this morning, contemplating the joy that is a tissue gone through the wash, I realised that I had something that was weighing on my mind.
It was truly bothering me. Important, stress inducing stuff.
Those bright colours on that last layout that I did, were just not RIGHT. I mean - sleeping child? bright colours? WHAT was I thinking?
So for the first time in the history of scrapbooking, I re-did a page.
And before I share the new "improved" page, I must share something else with you: I am finding digi scrapping harder than paper scrapping. The choosing of the papers! OMG! for some reason I am struggling with this...with real paper I just pick up the photo, spend a few minutes picking a suitable cardstock, and then a few more minutes with patterned paper(s). Maybe I have too much digital choice? Or by using a template I am feeling obliged to fill every little square, as its there to be used, whereas with real paper, i might have just used ONE paper instead of thee.
Anyhow, enough in depth analysing of my internal struggles with such life altering stuff.
Technical stuff: this is an 8x8 placed on a 12x12 white background. (I think the template came from a free Jessica Sprague class) I might even print this at home just to feel the satisfaction of sticking it down and sliding it into a page protector.
So dear readers, what are your thoughts? Do ya like the bright one better, or this quieter, calmer, more restful version better?
Now, I best get back to tackling the oh-my-lord-never-ending-bottomless-pile-of-washing-to-be-folded. If I go missing, you'll know its swallowed me whole! Me and the tissue.
