I struggled with this layout. I started it about 4 weeks ago without any plan on what I wanted and then it sat on my desk waiting for me to finish it up since then. I wasn't feeling inspired with it. Don't get me wrong, I love these photos. We had so much fun while they were being taken and I had so many to choose from. I followed my own advice and picked my favorites but the problem I was having was the paper choice. The background cardstock was originally a greeny-blue and I didn't like it. So last week I decided to rip it apart and redo it with a blue background. I was happier but still not satisfied. I found the layout plain. So I border punched the edges and then added the bling in each circle. I liked it more but found the bling seemed random so then I went bling crazy on the title. I think this helped to tie it all together. Still not my best work but it's what happens when I don't start with a plan!
