A month of scrapbooking – day 27

Welcome to day 27 of my scrapbooking challenge…“to complete an unfinished layout or create a new one from scratch every day for the next 30 days”.  Check out this first post here to get some more information on my children’s scrapbooks *day one* 

As I have been spending so much time looking through my albums I have found certain pages that I really dislike.  I have tried really hard to just concentrate on getting up to date with the album rather than recreating completed pages but I couldn’t resist refreshing this layout….

This is how they were….

They still needed dates and journalling but I knew they were all wrong.  The white background clashed with the vanilla in the decorative paper.  The number stood out too much.  The white flower wasn’t right.

I pulled the pages apart, I did tear a little of the decorative paper on one of them but I still had some scrap so that could be easily fixed.  I replaced the white with Very Vanilla.  I sponged the edges and added journalling and dates.  I redid the number in a smaller font.  I added some ribbon and twine.

So the essence of the page remains the same, but I’m much happier with it now.  I hope you agree!

See you tomorrow!

    Wow, on top of all that creating you found time to “fix” something that was already done. I have to agree that the updated version is so much nicer, although not much different. Funny how small things can have so much impact.
