    Default I need to vent about this LO

    I started this LO for the edges challenge and I thought I was going to lose my religion before I finished it! And you all know I teach 1st grade so I have an abundance of patience!

    I just couldn't get one thing done on it w/o something else messing up. The title started as rub-ons and I got them almost all on there and realized I had miscounted letters and was missing an "e".

    I had no other letters or anything the right size to cover it and had already glued the ribbon flower down (which I stapled my finger while putting together ) so I was determined to salvage the page!

    I read either Carrie's or Charys' post about typing letters out and cutting them apart and thank goodness b/c nothing else was working.

    I ruined one pic trying to alter the edge of it! So now my edge stinks! Everything was just messing up and I couldn't help but get mad.

    And the straw that broke camel's back:
    Ever had this happen to your ribbon glue?

    So, today I woke up sick. That's probably why I got so frustrated in hindsight. I worked a half day and had to come home. The flu is going around our school and I've had a flu shot but I feel so achy and yuck. I thought the card swap was to be mailed by Sat. and now I'm home with some kind of funk and I hope I get to mail my get well cards ( how's that for irony). I still have to make the envelopes for them and maybe DH can mail them for me.

    So, here's the LO, which I don't like BTW b/c it ended up looking like something from the Disney store and its going in my wedding album for goodness sake!

    journaling: We spent the day shopping for dresses for Jessica and Morgan. The girls loved trying on all the fancy dresses and playing dress-up with me. They pranced around and like princesses. The girls, Casey and I had smiles on our faces and loved being there…
    And then there was Logan!

    oh man! I've never had my glue explode on me like that. what a bad day! Sorry! And that is ironic that you are home sick making Get Well cards!

    BUT, I don't see one thing wrong with your layout! Infact, I LOVE IT!!! I love your distressed photo edge! wow, and the ribbon flower is fantastic! This layout rocks.

    Ugh... those are the days that make you want to cry, or punch a wall, and sometimes both.

    I get what you're saying about Disney store-ish and in a wedding album that may not fit, but if you hadn't vented your frustrations, I wouldn't have known. The page looks really well executed.

    Awww that is so frustrating!

    I love the page though - it may be kind of bright, but I think it really fits the subject matter with the kids and dress shopping and all. Hope you are feeling better soon!

    I think that is my favorite LO of yours. It may seem sort of disneyish, but it totally fits the kids!

    I'm going to have to steal your flower

    When it rains, it pours, eh?

    I think the LO came out very cute! I agree with pps who said it fits the kids! I wouldn't want all your wedding pages to be frilly and feminine. This captures a fun moment!

    Hope you're feeling better!
