I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. We had my parents over to our house, and I made dinner. Don't you love how after two days worth of food preparation, about 30 minutes is spent sitting at the table eating lol? And I wish I could say I was relaxing today, but we still had dishes to wash when we woke up this morning and then I cleaned the floors in preparation for putting up the Christmas tree this afternoon. Whoo! So while I take a short break before starting on dinner (re-heating leftovers), I thought I would share a layout I made earlier this month using the November 15th sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.
I'm going to admit to doing something I try not to do...I re-scrapped this photo. The few times I've done that before is because I really, really hated the page I had done. I know that's a horrible excuse, but sometimes the perfectionist in me wins. Anyhow, for this situation I feel like I actually had a legitimate excuse. I had used some crackle accents on a large embellishment that I had also distressed with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink...fast forward a few years later and it had turned the entire embellishment a yellowish color. Booooo! The worst part is that it was the first page of the album it was in, so it pretty much impossible to avoid being blinded by the ugliness. At first I tried pulling the embellishment off the page, but it tore several layers of paper as well as the photo...so I gave up and just re-scrapped it.
