Gotcha! Digi Layout!

Oh Boy! Am I feeling rusty with the digi scrapping. But at long last, I finally made a layout. What do you think? I'm not 100% convinced I like it. I know I'm not supposed to compare my work with others' creations, but a part of me wishes I could come up with some layouts like those I have seen. Does that even make sense?

It's been a long time since I have created a layout. I ended up having to re-organize all my digi supplies in my ACDSee program-I had lost all the tags. That's the main thing I've been working on since I messed up my ankle. Unfortunately my tush bugs me after too short a time in the chair, so I have been doing this in fits and spurts. I didn't feel like I could (read-should) digi scrap until I got that chore done. I knew if I let it go, I wouldn't go back to it. (LOL) I finished earlier this week (yea) but then had a fit of nerves about creating. Go figure.

Remember how hot it has been in Denver this summer? We broke a record for the number of consecutive days in the 90s. It was in the 100s right after I broke the ankle. Well, just to show how fickle the weather is in my neck of the woods, today it rained ALL day, but the kicker is that the temp was in the 60s. HUH? In the middle of August??? Yeppers. I've had sweats on all day. I have been in the house all day. So what better way to spend the day than to dip back into digi scrapping? Ü
