Have you ever done a layout that just wasn't "right"? That you didn't want to look at because it irritated you? Such was the case with one of my layouts with the Travel Journal kit.
It felt so blah and unfinished ...
So I tore it apart and came up with this ...
I misted the background cardstock with green, blue and brown Glimmer Mist and then did some stamping in two of the corners. Added a bit of decorative tape and some crocheted trim. But most importantly, I cut it down to 8.5 x 11. I think the different size is a huge improvement.
I like it much better now :)


  1. Much more what i think of "Tara" style now! But, i love them both!

  2. what a difference! it looks great!

  3. i liked the first version fine until i saw your second version -- wow, what a difference!!

    i run into this problem all of the time. I consult my scrappy friends who say it is fine. more often than not, i just move on in fear of ruining my "just fine" layout. i should try to be more adventurous!
