Tick Tock - A Time To Scrap!
And so it was with this page, started back in ... ...
... ... November!
I'd prepared the cardstock with some inking through masks, cropped my photos and cut up some of my November Counterfeit Kit before deciding that I wanted to sew on the page; which couldn't be done at my monthly crop!
So, a few days later, I unstuck everything and sewed my heart out before sticking the photos back down.
And then it was Christmas!
When I returned to the crop at the beginning of this year I decided that I didn't like the way the page was shaping up and pulled it apart again. Attempt #2 got as far as adding a title and embellies before stalling one more time: I couldn't work out how I wanted to add the journalling!
Home again and back onto the ponder-pile.
Luckily I spotted the January Sketch over at Sarah's Cards where I was inspired by some strips on the right hand side of a bank of three photos! Aha - just what I needed for some facts and figures, so it was time to pull the page apart once more and rearrange it a little (thank goodness for re-positionable glue).
Shameful to admit how long this page has taken to complete, but I am now very happy with it :-D
Thank you Sarah! Note to self: Use journalling strips more - they are fun!
