How did that happen?

Happy Spring!   

I know some of us don’t feel like it temperature-wise, but it’s officially here and I’m going to fake it until I make it.  Speaking of faking it… (did you see what I did there!)

I was on a roll finally finishing some layouts from some vacation photos in Key West.  I was positive I had measured everything perfectly and glued my photos down.  You can see where this is going.  My measuring was not exactly what it needed to be.   

I was left with blank spaces that were intended to have two additional photos in them.  My plan had been to have a square of matted photos and embellish the rest of the page. 

Well, I decided to embellish the blank spaces instead!  I simply placed a strip of patterned paper in one and went a little heavier on the embellishments in the other.  Add a title and some simple strips along one side of the square and it’s all back in order.  I actually like this better than what I’d planned.

Hanging Out by Moanica Caston.  Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper, and other embellishments: Cosmo Cricket; Letter alphas: American Crafts.

Remember, there are no mistakes in scrapbooking.  That’s the beauty of crafting and creating.  You can make it whatever you want! 

Here’s to warmer weather!


  1. Nice Job! One would have never known! Cheers to warmer weather, indeed! :)

  2. Great layout...key west is on my list

  3. Beautiful! A great remind....sometimes we just need to "go with it." Things just might turn out even better than we planned!
