NSD 2015 Selfie

Uhg. This is one of those layouts that just didn't work out as I envisioned. 

I used all my favorite colors and images. Aqua, pink, pineapples, feathers, cameras, and hearts are all here and yet it just doesn't work.

I do love the center of the layout and my embellishment clusters.

I've loved pineapples since I was a very small child so this new micro-trend of pineapples is making my heart sing with joy!

But this layout just isn't doing it for me! I'm thinking that I needed to use a black as the border for the layout instead of the soft pink. What do you think?

I do like that my hidden journaling has some some current facts about myself. I'm not that great about recording those things, so it feels good to get it scrapped.

All in all, I'm glad I made this layout but I may go back and change a few things. Please tell me I'm not the only one who isn't always in love with their pages? :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Girl Time

Hi, all! This is another one of my "I need to clean off my scrap desk/use up my scraps" layouts. Hee!

I used a kraft background on this one. It and white are my go-to backgrounds when I'm not using a patterned paper.

I also used one of my punches! I sometimes get out of the habit of using things and I love it when I "rediscover" them in my stash.

I think this is also the first layout that I'd used ribbon on in a long time. I used to use it on almost every layout but now it's a rarity. I'm glad I used it for this page and I'm going to try to get back into using it more often.

The other thing I used that was out of the ordinary were these gold glitter enamel dots. I don't know why, but I've never been too fond of them. But, with the glitter gold Thickers as a title, it just goes perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
