Happy Monday. Just stopping by to share a layout I created this weekend about my niece Mackenzie turning 9. This LO did not come easily... I had the design in mind before I started, but I really struggled getting the colors right. I was sticking with turquoises and yellows and white, but then when the title came along, the pink entered. I had to go back a few times to work in that pink throughout - even reworked the circle flower 3 times. I think I'm ok with where I ended up. I also want to thank Piradee Talvanna, who posted so honestly on her blog about how she was struggling with a LO of her own. It is so comforting and encouraging to know that even professional scrappers sometimes struggle with getting a page *just right*. So thanks, Piradee. :) And Happy Birthday, Blondie! Love you!
