Pretty is as Pretty does!

It seems that Saturday's are the only days I have time to post lately. I really enjoy viewing all of the other wonderful blogs I subscribe to, but currently I am a little 'stuck' with my scrapping. I am starting to feel like I am hording my stash! LOL!!! I have received the April AND May Unity Kits of the Month and haven't used a single stamp yet!!! I think maybe I am just a bit intimidated due to all of the wonderfully creative girlies out there. I feel that maybe my 'stuff' just won't measure up.....stupid, I know! I have got to just dig in and do it! I know it will turn out fine, but I'm a newbe with all of the stamping and coloring thing. Card making doesn't seem as easy as scrapbooking! Do I use pencil? Or copics? How much layering is good? A little or alot? Insecurity isn't my best atribute.

So I dove into a layout that I started a couple of months ago and couldn't figure out how to finish. I really love how it turned out! I'll have to force myself to make a card and post it this weekend. Please come back to give me some feedback on what you think...and be honest. :) Any tips will certainly be appreciated! Thanks for visiting!!! Many blessings for a beautiful weekend! ~Cheri

I loved it before I got to the close up version because of the swirlies. I love bling swirlies and if you put those on a layout you're getting my vote! The layout is great besides that, though. What made you not like it and leave it sitting for months? I gasped when I read that! LOL

I started it at a crop and it was my last layout that I was working on and just ran out of time. Then, really kindof forgot about it until I was looking for something else and stumbled across it. :)
