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 layout..no, 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!
