      I had the hardest time with this template challenge! I hated everything I tried, left it alone for about a week, came back and was going to dump the whole thing, but thought, eh, I'll just add some embellishments and maybe it will be alright. I like it more now - and at least I didn't have to start over!

      Supplies used:
      Papers from Clementine and Happy Go Lucky
      Embellishments from Carousel, HopScotch, and Yours Truly
      Grandma Alpha from Blossom
      "with" is Sahlin Studio Glass Pebble Alpha
      stamped brackets are Sahlin Studio Foam Stamp Alpha - white
      (I think that's it!)

      I know you said you had trouble with it but I think it turned out great! The photos are really nice and I think all the colors in the layout and your clustering look really good.

      Aren't we our harshest critics?!!!! I often have that feeling in the pit of my stomach that something is not quite right... but you know what, I've come to the realisation that imperfection is the way to go!!! And as my beautiful fellow shabby artist, Beckie, always says... "scrap with your heart and the rest will follow"... and this little piece of advice always gets me through the doubts (although that doesn't stop me from pressing the big "DELETE FILE" button from time to time, lol)!! I say all this because when I look at this wonderful page of yours there's is no way I would have thought that you'd struggled. The photos are the stars (as they should be!!) and I LOVE the eclectic mix of elements - and your title work is fantastic!!! The whole combination is lovely - especially how the dark background paper and frames balance all the fun of the papers and embellies! You are such a talented digi-scrapper and I want to THANK YOU so much for sharing your challenge entry!!

      I love love love it!!! Don't be so hard on yourself! That photo with the kids and Grandma is so especially SWEET! She will cherish this layout as will your kids! And isn't that what this hobby is all about. I would love to have a layout like this of me and my sisters with our OMA! I love the way you have used the template for the Easy-As-Pie Template Challenge {13}!!! I especially like your title and the "life is good" is my favorite part!

      What a beautiful layout! I love the title work, cluster of elements, and the photos are precious! I too struggle with some layouts from time to time! Sometimes I make a couple versions and have my daughters choose which one they like best to put in their photo albums.
