Changing the Plan
I often start a project with some specific objectives in line. For example, sometimes I start knowing I want to use a specific photo, a certain stamp set, or my new favorite paper. I almost always know if the project is going to be a card, layout, or mini album.
For this project, I saw this great My Little Shoe Box Simple Life paper at the store, and just knew I had the perfect pictures for it. When I started work on this, it was going to be a layout. However, no matter how I mixed and matched the paper and photos, I just wasn't happy with my design. I decided to change the plan a little, and instead of the layout I started out creating, I ended up with a great little accordion album. Even though I ended up far away from where I started, I couldn't be happier with the finished product.
