I have a couple of layouts on hand at the moment which are pretty much done but in both cases I have the nagging feeling that they need something else. I have gone through my kits and stash and have not found that something else so this leaves me with a question. Do I pop them in my album and call them done? Or do I hunt on forever for that perfect elusive embellishment that will take my layout from okay to wow?
The first layout was one I worked on very quickly yesterday while Monkey napped. I pulled out my oldest Studio Calico kit, Glee Club and some photos from 2011 that I had wanted to scrap for ages. The layout came together really quickly but I still feel like it needs something else in the top right hand corner. There is nothing in the kit that will do the job and nothing much in my stash that would work either.
By the way, if you ever get the chance to try one of these cakes from a Lawson Convenience Store in Japan, run do not walk. They are amazing and I have the extra kilo or two to prove it.
The second layout is suffering from a similar issue but I don't know what is missing. Even my husband thinks it needs something else.
I am embracing using my handwriting on layouts much more of late. It is quick and while not as lovely as a beautiful font, I suspect it will be something I look back on with happiness years from now. I am not in love with the bottom left hand corner. I love the two Sketchbook stickers but maybe not together... I am just not sure how to fix it.
