Turtle Pond


Believe it or not, this layout has been on my scrap table since before Christmas! I could never decide what to do with it. It originally was going to be two pages and I wanted to use that Scenic Route paper down the left side. That poor paper got cut up so many different times that all I could really do with it is to use strips. Finally, this week, I saw this Cuttlekid turtle die and thought it would be adorable on this page. After arranging and rearranging these pictures at least 100 times, I got rid of a couple, cut several down quite a bit, and pulled in some orange from Allison's purse. (Can you see those orange straps on her shoulder?) I think I am happy with it, now. Don't know why I obsess over things like this so much. Does that ever happen to you?

Many times I have had to lay aside a project because I wasn't happy with how it was coming together. Usually it is because I have an idea in my head on how it "should" look, but usually that is not the way that it "does" look.

Your tenacity really paid off, because the layout looks great. I love the colors and how you placed the photos on the page.
