Well, I pushed through. I found a sticker with the words “Lower Falls” on it in a rusty color and figured out that the pages I was having trouble with just needed a little pop of color.
Uh oh! Now that I’m seeing the photo up close, I’m thinking the rust circle is a little too off for my anal-ness…that’s going to have to be re-done! Heeheehee!
I added rust backing to 3 areas on the layout, and now I’m happy. Well, except for the goofy circle. That doesn’t make me happy, but it’s a quick fix.
I freaked a little when I discovered I didn’t have enough of my main paper to finish the entire layout, so I made some adjustments to stretch it…It’ll take a few days to complete the whole layout, as I’m looking at 8-10 pages on this one section, but I like the direction it’s going, so it’s all good. I only have kiddles for an hour tomorrow, and not too awful much to do to get ready for Thanksgiving, so I’m hoping to get the majority of this layout done.
I’m so very grateful that I have a life that enables me to spend so much time with my family. There are times when I wish I could be young again, but then I’d have all the obligations that go along with “getting ahead.” One of the blessings of getting older is having all that behind you and being able to live in the moment. And living in the moment is a VERY good place to live.
