Gossamer Blue: We Kick Butt

I have a great group of girlfriends that I met through MOMS Club, and this Spring we took on a health-incentive challenge called Walk Kansas.  The final day of Walk Kansas was our local Susan G. Komen 5k, so we formed a team and did the race together.

So, this was one of those layouts that, in my opinion, worked out better in my head than on paper. And that's ok!  I really wanted to get these photos scrapped and I really wanted to include multiple photos on my page.  I liked the GB exclusive camera paper because the colors go with the photos, plus a few of the photos were taken selfie-style.

I won't tear this layout apart and re-do it, but I may scrap a few of the photos again on a new page (I tend to do that anyway).

What I Learned:

  • a grid-style would have probably worked better for this size and orientation of photos
  • less is more; a large strip of the photo paper would probably have been a better choice
  • walk away; I didn't love it and kept working it.  A break would have given me new perspective
Do you get that feeling of >blah< when you're done with a page?  What's your solution?

Happy Creating

  1. Hi!
    I move on. I hide it under the pile of finished layouts!
    I usually start my layouts with some kind of inspiration ie mostly a sketch or idea I saw on line.
    Have a good weekend!
