Layout Redo-Crate Paper Notes & Things

I usually finish the layout and other cards or tags for my Friday spotlight days before I post it on the blog.  I did this same thing last week.  Then I received a few more goodies from the collection on Friday afternoon.  After I looked thru the ephemera and rub-ons I knew that I had to make some adjustments to my layout.  Now there are many layouts that I have done that I don’t necessarily love but I don’t redo them.  I firmly believe that how you create a layout can tell as much about the story as the story itself.  I wanted to adjust this page because I felt that there were extra embellishments in the collection that would help me better tell the story of this moment.

I found an “R” in the ephemera pack and it just so happens that this is the day that we decided to name out little guy Ryder.  I also loved the rub on that fit in to the coral frame.






This picture was taken on the 2nd day of my sweet boys life.  I also added some other little elements in to the envelope with the journaling about this photo.



I added various rub-ons and arrows around the page.  In the end….was it necessary to add to this, do I sometimes have a problem stopping myself from embellishing too much…yes.  However, I am much happier with the layout now.  What do you think???




Thanks for stopping by!
