A Tale Of Two Christmases


I do have a story to tell about two different Christmases, but as it involves somebody else I don't think it's fair to share it here. Here's the page though:


I'm not thrilled with it, I have to say! I messed around with the compostition of it so many times, moving things around, adding extra bits, taking bits away again, and it's still not right - but I've decided to just stop and call it done.


It does have the 'split page' idea to convey the sense of two contrasting Christmases, and I know I'll love my album as a whole, so I'm not going to stress about it any more! It'll do just fine :-)


(By the way, I'll let you know which Advent calendar is whose tomorrow so if you haven't guessed yet there's still time!)

Love the happy Christmas Stockings paper - such fun!
I also like the way you've cut the circle from your background and raised the number up above it. It looks smart.
I haven't even started my JYC stuff yet - I'm just so snowed under with work and wasn't well all weekend... bleah... But I've had fun looking at other people's stuff!

I think the page looks very nice and remember the whole is greater than the sum of the parts in this project (no matter what you maths people might say!).

I have to say, if it were my page, I'd be over the moon with it ... I really like it. Maybe look at it again tomorrow, and you'll see how lovely it is.

Actually, I love this page! Your layering is wonderful and yet there's lots of space too.

I think it look snice but there are more than a few of my own pages that I had to stop and call 'good enough' so I understand the feeling

Amy said...

Well, I like what you have done - stick with it I say! :-) Rinda is right by the way :-)

I love it Mel but it is up to you how you feel about it maybe if you look at it again on another day you may of changed your mind x

Giselle said...

Nothing wrong with that! I like the way your page turned out & you are so right about NOT stressing over it :)

Sian said...

Stick with it! And I applaud your decision to keep some of the story private too. It's good to stop and think about what we are sharing every so often.

Your page turned out pretty cute. I don't know how you do it- full time job, blogging, and family. I keep wishing I could get to my scrap room but something else seems to take that time.

Maybe for your page if you off set your top print circle to the opposite corner on the top. Directly over the red circle on the bottom to create a triangle for your eye to follow with the circles. You may have already tried that. Just a suggestion

I like the split look Mel and your use of circles :)
