Ever make a big mistake on a layout? Well, let me share my layout for the Memory Nest's Make it Monday. So, I had the sketch and I had an idea what I wanted to do. I was going to do this cool gelato background and it ended up being a big mess. So, I put to the side and tried again. I made this page you see....well kind of what you see. Originally, I put a nice wooden one and wrote all about my little guy's first month milestones. When I went to put the layout away, I realized that I had the wrong month. These were actually his second month of life photos. Whoops! I could switch out the wooden number easily, but the journaling was more tricky to fix. I had written right onto the page, so I had to cover up my old journaling with new journaling. This made the page very right side heavy. Then I had to add some more bits on the left side to help it a bit. It came out fine in the end, but I was in a bit of a panic for a while. I wasn't positive I was going to be able to fix it.
I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash . I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two. The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another) I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering. I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.
