Lasting Memories #254 - Miss Independent

Say it isn't so! This is our last weekend before another school year starts. That can't be possible, it seems like summer just started! So long sleepin' in! It's been a good summer and I guess it'll be good to get back into a routine.

There's a new challenge up over on the Lasting Memories blog. This week our challenge is a sketch challenge, and we are to use anything with wings on our page.

Here is the sketch:
And my layout:
Do you ever struggle with a layout to make it look just right, and no matter what you do, you can't get it to look right? That's what happened with this layout. I had envisioned it to look one way, but I just couldn't get it to look like I wanted on paper.
I think my problem started when I thought I had the perfect paper for these photos, but when I dug it out, it did not go with them at all. So, it was a search through my paper stash for something that would work. I probably should have just set these pictures aside and found something else to work with.
But then I found these lace butterfly stickers and knew I wanted to use them with these photos of Miss Ada because they matched the lace in her outfit perfectly. So, I tried to make it work.
Still not what I had envisioned... but it's done. I'm not completely happy with this layout and I'm not saying that I won't scrap these pictures again someday!
Be sure to check out the Lasting Memories blog to see the layouts from the rest of the design team. You have until the end of the month to join any or all of our challenges.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is blessed!
