grrrr... wrong kit!

So, I've had this picture of Grandma that I wanted to do a layout with ... and I've had it for a long time (she died in 2003, picture was taken in Dec 02). I'm tired, and I just wanted to start something with her picture. So I used this kit (already forgot the name of it, I should just go to bed :lol:) and I'm not happy with it. Found two more kits in my folders that would work better, so I will try again another day.

But seriously, what was I thinking using this kit with this picture? Do you just see it clash?

I like all the elements, but I am not sure about the background. What a sweet pic though. Biggrin

i love the elements and paper but i don't think they go with the pic. I think it needs something old fashioned/antique

I think so too and a "soft" paper. I think I was just wishing I was productive and started the project without having my brain together. Lol hope to work on it again today. waiting for someone to come by who is buying something from craigslist. if I head to the basement to work, I won't hear the doorbell. I hate waiting!

I agree that the paper and elements should be 'softer'.
The picture is so elegant and the kit should be too.
Can't wait to see what you come up with!!

I think it looks good but understand if your instincts are telling you otherwise!
