In the rush (and scrapping should never be rushed) to finish all my pictures from the year 2000 because it is taking 4EVER to get them done, I tried to throw together this page of Harold’s 19th birthday. I disliked it from the get go but you know sometimes they grow on you – this one did not! Add some embellishments? Nope – not even that would save this page so this morning I ripped it apart – yup the whole thing. Have you ever done that? I have only once before…actually I just took the pictures off and threw the page in the garbage it was that bad!
I am embarrassed to show you but hey I think I have made a recovery. Now isn’t this just aweful?
So after pulling it apart, I scanned the photos and edited them in Photoshop and printed them in the sizes I wanted. I was going for simple and this new and improved page just came together. I even used a few of the scraps from the previous disaster. Nothing fantastic – just there, but all I wanted to say on the page was that he was nineteen. The pictures, the gifts, Grandpa C sitting beside him, his smile, the cake – they all do the journalling for me.
Tell me your worst page scenario. 🙂
