Scrapin' & Strugglin'

Did you ever have an idea in your head and once it was down on paper you stopped and asked yourself, "What the heck was I thinking???" LOL Well, here is a perfect example. I had this wonderful idea in my head for a pair of 6" x 6" scrapbook pages and I just can't get it down on paper. The page on the right has a pocket. I probably should have put something in the pocket so you could see it but I was just not happy with the whole thing so even trying to dress it up is out of the question.

I don't make many scrapbook pages and it is a challenge of mine to work on more of them. I signed up to be in a scrapbook page swap and since what was in my head isn't on paper I'm going to have to switch gears and try to find another idea and run with it.

SO this post tells you that I will be making another set of pages and adding them to the blog. Hopefully they will be better than these are. In many aspects of life you should stick with what you know and like. Well, I REALLY like snowmen so I may have to run in that direction. And I'm off to take a stab at some new pages.

Don't forget to enter (click here) in the Anniversary Blog Candy!!! One year!! I'm SO thrilled!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by,

I actually like it. Once you have pictures and journaling on it you probably would like it too.

I don't think it's that bad,common girl don't be so hard on yourself.
Maybe the page on the right is cause the dp is too wide for the cardstock...I don't know,i'm no expert on pages either. I too am in love with snowmen,they melt my heart!!!!

I think the layout is great. The only thing that I'm not thrilled with is the red snowmen. Maybe try wheeling in black and doing a little coloring for a pop. I'm looking forward to seeing the next set.

I think it's fine. I have a winter scrapbook on my blog if you want to take a peek for some ideas.
Look on my sidebar click albums then scroll down to winter album.
