"Layout Challenged"


I made this card last night, it took me almost two and a half hours. Seriously. Here's why. I got some new paper yesterday and I couldn't wait to make a card with it. I knew that I wanted to use this Bella image that I got from Kristine with my new paper. Here is the problem. I am very layout challenged. I seem to make the same layouts over and over. Which is fine, but I would like to do something different once in a while. Ya know, mix it up a little. Why didn't I just go to SCS and look at some of the past sketch challenges? I really wanted to but my husband was on the computer and my lap top isn't connected to the Internet. So I sat here cutting out pieces, putting them on, not liking them and changing them around. Then I took a break or two, got back to my card. Here is what I came up with. Today we are going to Best Buy and getting wireless Internet connection for the laptop. Woo Hoo!!! So, tonight while I am trying to think of a good layout, I can go to the laptop and look at some past challenges. I can't wait.
