Two pages

It's been fun being a part of Christina's creative team. These two pages feature her newest kit, Subtle Memories. It's a really pretty kit!
When scrapping, I love it when things go together smoothly and fast. Like an idea will pop in my head and then I can create it and it turns out great! Well, lately things haven't been going like that for me. It's been more of, scrapping, unscrapping, rescrapping, and then repeat. I do not like it when things go like that. Because even when I do come up with my final page, it still feels like it's missing something.

This page went together pretty smoothly. But there were several changes made.

This one, I think I tried 3 or 4 different ways, and then pretty much went back to my original and just tweaked it some. Ha!

Parade & Fireworks

I created this page a while ago. I think I really was struggling with liking it because the quality of the pictures are so bad. So it's not my favorite page, but I figured I better leave it alone after messing with it so many times.
Yikes!! It's soooo late, I haven't stayed up this late in a while, I better get to bed!!

Indecisive= two pages

I figured after 5 + years I better get our wedding photos all scrapped. So I am on a quest to accomplish that feat. 
I first created the page below... Because I was struggling with whether I liked it or not, I got a second opinion. My husband's (which sometimes can be a mistake) and he didn't like it so well. And I wasn't sure I totally liked it.

So along came page #2. (shown below). I got this one created and then had the two side by side and asked him which one he liked better. He said "hmm, I don't know, maybe I like the original one better now, I really don't know". And, I wasn't completely certain either. I like them both in different ways. I even asked my 4 year old son which one was his favorite, he at first said he liked the first one. And then he said he liked them both. So I asked him again to make a final decision and he said the first!! Ha! I don't always ask opinions on my pages, cause if I really like it and am settled, then I leave it, but if I'm uncertain, I guess I like another's opinion!

I like how this one shows more of the pictures whereas the top page cuts some of the images off. I tweaked and messed with them on the first page to try and show as much of the photos I could. So I am still undecided. I like the simplicity of this last one, but then I like the "funess" (if that's even a word!) of the first one!!! AHHH!!! I spent way too much time on these I think. I hate when I get stuck in a rut when scrapbooking. I have worked off and on on these for a few days now and I think I just need to leave them both alone, and come back to them some time from now... and we'll see which one I actually end up printing!!! :) Maybe I'll change them altogether! That's the fun of digital, you can change anything!! But not always good for me because I have such a hard time making a decision at times!! And really the two pages aren't too different from each other. Ones just sideways and the other horizontal with a little more simplicity.
I guess because these pictures are of our wedding, I am really picky at how I want them to be. So that's part of my problem.

For both of these pages I used:
And for the top page I also used:

Here I am with another layout! Using most everything from different kits from Greener Grass Designs and some fun stitching I got free today from Little Dreamer Designs.
I had a hard time with this page. I was afraid I was loosing my steam for creating already. But after a few "facelifts" later, I finally came up with this. I guess I like it, but I'm not totally sold on it. Sometimes I just have pages like that. Where something about it bothers me, but I'm just not sure what!? Anyway I like the fun bright colors and the lazy summer feel it has.
