Sometimes I just am not satisfied with a layout after I am finished – so I add to my layout after a bit of time has passed until I am happy with it. Such was the case for this layout. I had finished it in a hurry to make the deadline for a competition. Here was the original:
Here is the layout re-worked a bit until I was happy with it:

The layout was done as part of my application for the design team for Scrapbookers Anonymous. I am very pleased to say I was one of the lucky winners and will be on their DT for the next six months!!! Yay!!!
Scrapbookers Anonymous is a terrific challenge blog that I’ve discovered recently. They challenge their readers to use up items in their scrapbooking stash that they might not otherwise use. So many of us collect scrapbooking supplies and just never have the time to use them, or move on to the next released line of supplies in the stores before we have done justice to what we already have. Often, I think, it is just because we are stuck and cannot imagine what we can make with what we have on hand. Scrapbookers Anonymous is great – they give me lots of ideas of how to get going and get a design onto paper!!!!
How many stamps have you bought and never used???? Or used once or twice????? For May`s challenge they ask participants to use a stamp to make background paper, and also to make 3 embellishments with stamps for their layout.
I used a script stamp to make some background paper to resemble a letter, made an envelope with a stamped postmark, a stamped dressform and stamped some titling as an embellishment on my layout. Creating embellishments with stamps was so much fun, that the second time around I added a bird that was stamped with a musical note stamp that I had in my stash. This GORGEOUS paper is Timepiece by Bo Bunny. Hope you like it.
Oh yes, the gorgeous timeless beauty is my mother Mary Allain Wride who will remain forever young in my memory!!!
