Another Scrapbook Page Redo

I am proud of myself! I did 4 scrapbook pages this weekend! This one is a re-do. All of us evolve in our craft, whatever it may be. Sometimes I look back at previous pages and think "Ugh! What was I thinking??" Other times, I'm happy with what I've done and the feeling I captured on the page. This time, however, I felt I needed to add more than just the date, place, and event as I did originally. I also feel I can give a different perspective to the photos now than I could "back then." For example, these photos are of my oldest son when he was 5. Now he's almost 16. As his mom, I look at his precious face and think about the young man he's becoming and how much I treasure moments spent with him. I just added a little more journaling, but I like the vellum sentiment that says "Happy are the pure in heart." I think it conveys meaning about the pictures.



The background paper is from Paper Studio; the journaling block is Bo Bunny. The "E" monogram stamp is from Studio G. Thanks for looking and have a good day!

Totally understand the "redo" mentality. I look back at some of my first pages and so want to go back and "redo". Then I'm reminded that my older page styles also tell a story about me and I leave it alone.
