Have you ever had a layout that you didn’t really like after you made it but then the more you look it gets better and better? Well, that’s how I felt about this layout. I took a class sponsored by Queen & Co. at a Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention. I took the class because the class description was about using twine. Twine is so fun to use and there’s so many fun colors! Well, I got to the class and was handed this packet of goodies with all these super bright colors in it. Not generally my favorite. Wasn’t sure exactly what I didn’t like about it but it just wasn’t my favorite. At any rate, I enjoyed the class and the techniques they shared and even one a spool of twine!! Woo hoo!! I love winning stuff!!
So, this layout sat in my scrappy bag from CKC for many many months until I decided that I really should finish it. I was lucky to find some pictures from boating that would work perfectly with the bright colors on the layout. I had actually finished this layout a few months ago and it just sat there in my scrap room waiting for it to be photographed and then put in an album. When I pulled it out I realized that I really did like it after all!! It’s growing on me! Maybe the awesome smiles on my boy’s faces gets my attention more than that bright green paper. It’s all good because now I like this layout when at first I didn’t care for it much.
I love summer sunshine
