What Dreams May Come...

This is what happens when you try to just get it done, take the pic & post it... it haunts your dreams.  In the middle of last night, I awoke with the thought that the layout totally wasn't complete - something definitely missing.  So I got up and finished the little space on top of the envelope.  Had to share that little drama in my life as it honestly shows that I am possessed!!!  I'm putting it back in the album now and hopefully it will stay put!


Added some KI Memories tape, Basic Grey chipboard & a Maggie Holmes sticker and then moved some photos around.  Happier now. Let me know what you think - still not sure about the photos.

Glad to hear I'm not alone in my 'untrendiness' regarding Amy Tangerine.  Thought it must just be me! But I totally agree that things seem a little overpriced for the quality and then a lot of things are just not 'pretty' (and let's face it, I'm a slave to 'pretty').  However, I do think those little veneer pieces are very cute (especially if you can find them on sale) and the envelopes are rather lovely even if not vellum - I adore the colors.  But I feel so much better about not bowing to peer pressure now and will be very selective (and not expect too much) if I decide to make any further purchases.  Oh, and I will add that I do plan on making her 'camera' album my next album purchase (it's going to be all mine, no family layouts or anything like that!!!) but then you can't go wrong with an American Crafts 3-ring binder!

Also, want to add that I understand totally about the Maggie Holmes.  While the colors are genuinely lovely, the patterns are rather off-putting.  As you can tell I've dug into it for a few layouts, but honestly don't totally love it yet (except the camera paper, but its camera paper!).  However, I have no doubt that it will be like the Lucky Charm and will grow all up on me and I will fall madly in love (I so hope).  P.S. I stand by the word that the embellishments - especially those frames - are enchanting.

Okay, that's all - just had to let you know what my nightmares consist of - and why I stay so tired all the time!! (Not!).  Hope everyone is creating, creating, creating.

  1. Did I forget to comment on this? Oops. I read it while eating breakfast, thinking I would remember to comment later. Did I? Apparently not. :-( (Getting old is really sucking.)

    On a happier note, I like the revamped version of this page better. I didn't notice anything wrong with the first, but adding the embellishments adds so much to the page. Love it!

    Have a great weekend!! Hugs to ya!
