I think my problem is that I try to overthink things and when I look at what others have done, I always then think mine isn't as good and get a bit disheartened. I know I need to lighten up a bit (ok, a lot!) and that is one of my resolutions for this year. I can't be a perfect mum, wife, scrapbooker etc and sometimes I need to give myself a break and accept that I've done my best given the time I have.
Anyway, miserable bit aside, I've been thinking about and playing with ideas for this LO for days to the point where it's driven me crazy! I knew the photos I wanted to use but they were portrait instead of landscape so I had to rotate the sketch. I then played with the elements until they were in a fashion that I liked. It really got to the point where I knew the deadline was coming and I just needed to get my butt in gear and get things stuck down etc and see what happened. As it was, Emma was a fab girl this afternoon and settled almost straight away in her basket, Jack was happy enough as always in front of a Postman Pat DVD so I quickly put this LO together using stash from the December kit and I'm actually quite pleased with it. As a bonus, I'm pleased to be playing in pink for a change! What do you think?
As a bonus for reading all that, here's a photo of my little girl taken last night. Cute huh?
