I Need to Learn to Follow Directions!

Boy did I waste some time this past weekend! I went to my monthly crop at Stamp and Scrap Nest in Simsbury, and was planning to complete both of my assignments for Mosaic Moments for February during the crop. Well, you know how things go - you get to talking with your friends....I finished my first layout and realized - oh no! It was supposed to use 2 1/8" squares as the main feature on the layout, and I hadn't used one single square of that size! I didn't have duplicate pictures with me, so I was going to have to wait until I got back home to print out new ones and start over! And, of course, I couldn't have figured this out before I had cut out all the little flowers from another patterned paper and stacked them three deep for embellishments, and added scrollwork from a sheet of stickers!

Anyway, I thought you might enjoy seeing both layouts - I always enjoy seeing different ways of using the same supplies and pictures. I had to change the title because I now had less space for it (plus, I wasn't sure I would have enough of the letter stickers to spell out the same title, anyway!) And in the second one I had a little extra space to put some journaling. Fortunately, I still had enough paper to make some of the same embellishments.

They both are okay, but I still prefer the first one!

Love your layouts. I don't scrapbook very much but I would like to try this.
