I am alone in my love of scrapbooking. Well, not *completely* alone. I have the incredible online scrappy community. But there is no one here to look at my work and give me a suggestion or two. Normally it isn’t too big of an issue. I’ve often figured out how to “fix” a layout in the middle of the night.
About 6 months ago I put together a layout. As I was beginning to shuffle pages into my albums the other day, I realized there is just something missing with this page. I’m a pretty simple scrapbooker, but it is too simple even for me.
I started with the photo and then immediately pulled a piece of paper from the True Stories collection from Shimelle. I used it to fussy cut the espresso cup. That’s what helped me choose my paper colors. I picked a few embellishments, loving how the burlap and wood worked with the wood of the bench in the photo.
Now I’m just stuck. I know it needs something. I just don’t know what that something is. I think the issue is the amount of teal paper on show to the left of the pink paper. If you have any ideas, please leave me a comment. I would be happy to try a few things out to improve this page.
