I am so enjoying scrapbooking at the moment! Obviously, some of my layouts work out better than others, but that is part of the learning process, and I am learning to try new things courtesy of my online class. I am really enjoying actually using some of my pretty papers instead of hoarding them away, although even some of the older ones can still be quite difficult to cut into - but I love seeing them in my album instead of in my stash. Since starting attending the crop and doing the class, I have practically filled up a whole album (plenty more still to share!)
So, this layout is the result of prompt #3 to do a concentrated layout. I cut up a whole set of brand new papers (eek!) only to have to abandon them because they didn't work with the white background, and I knew that I definitely wanted to use a white background (that was quite painful!) However, I love these old papers (Basic Grey Urban Prairie) and now don't have many left ... may in fact have to purchase some new papers (yay) at the rate that I am using my existing ones!
I must admit that I really like this layout ... it may look simple but I can assure you that it nearly drove me mad. I definitely wanted to use the rosettes that I had made with Daphne (thanks Daphne!) and also my new butterfly and border punch and that probably made life more difficult, but I did it!
