Done Is Done


Back in August, Susan Stringfellow created this wonderful design for the sketch challenge at Scraptastic. I loved all the layered papers, the fun little banner and the circle elements, and decided I would use it for one of my kit layouts. 


I kept my page very close to the original sketch, horizontally flipping a few of the design elements, but otherwise following Susan's prompts for the rest. 


My favorite part of the page is the little cluster of elements below the photo: a paper frame, cut apart tags from Elle's Studio, and an exclusive Scraptastic flair.


What I am not so wild about is the cardstock background. Sigh...I should have added mist, paint, or stamping. But done is done! It now has journaling and is in the books...literally.

When you have a scrapbook page that doesn't meet your expectations, do you let it go and just move on? Or do you try to "fix" it?

Beautiful layout, love the colors and layers, and especially how the enamel dots run to the cut leaves! If it's an easy fix, I'll do it, otherwise I just sigh and move on. :)

I really like it! :) I know what you mean though ... I have several layouts that I'm not totally happy about, but like you say, it's done! :) I typically just move on ... :)

Most of the time I move on. Lately there are a few I fixed.

Love this Madeline. That cluster is so pretty and I love how you used the enamel dots!
