Re-do

Hey all! Have you ever done a layout that when you finished it, you just hated it? I'm sure you have. Well, that happened to me with my most recent layout. I was trying to complete the current challenge prompt for The Pink Ninjas and when I finished my layout, I looked at it and said, "ick!" Here is what it looked like:
And since one of my goals for this year was to create 100 layouts that I am satisfied with, I couldn't leave my layout as it was. So, I went back and made a few edits. Even though I love those awesome Sassafras flowers, they weren't working well with what I had already done. The tag was all wrong and the ribbon I used looked terrible. So, I changed my flowers around, I used a new tag, with some twine instead of ribbon, stuck on some buttons and even added a few tears to the background paper to make it flow better. Here is what I came up with:
I am much more pleased with this final product, although it's still not perfect. Anyways, this second layout is the one I am submitting to The Pink Ninjas' current challenge. The challenge was to use a black and white photograph, scrap about a New Year's resolution and use pink alphas on the layout.


Until next time, happy kraftin'!

Hi Kat !

Thanks for the blog visit !

Love your take on this challenge ! Gorgeous girlie you are too !!!

When in doubt , I usually find splattering some paint or mist / or misting in some color/s will usually up the oomph factor for me on any layout that I'm not completely happy with ! ;)
