Like and Dislike

I finished two pages last night. I like this first one, but don't like the second one. You know how you picture something in your mind, then create the page and it's nothing like you pictured? That's why I just don't like it. Oh and I don't know why the pics turned out so blurry and the color is really off on both, but anyways, here they are.


Edited to change the picture size. They were way too small.

The journaling on the first page says "While eating lunch with Daddy at work, Mommy put you in the driver's seat and you grabbed the wheel like a natural. The look of excitement in your eyes tells it all! A Kodak moment. July 13, 2007"

The journaling on the second page says "Daddy and Mommy were just discussing how it would not be long before you figured out how to open the cabinets. No sooner had they said it, than you scooted over to one, opened the door and took out the toaster! June 28, 2007 PS. You were probably listening!"

I really like them! But I can see why you were disapointed, I have pages like that too. Its hard when you have something in mind and it doesnt happen. I really love the journaling!

oh, the first one is so cute! I'm always meaning to journal in strips like that, I really love the look of that. and so cute that he's "driving". Wink

the second page is cute too, not sure why you don't like it. wonder if you pictured it slightly different?

Those are great pages! I love them. I know what you mean about picturing something and it turning out different.

ROTFL I actually like the bottom one better than the top! But they are both great! I wish I had some pics of Arwen digging in the cupboards - it was her favorite thing to do LOL But it drove me nuts. I had this one cupboard that had plastic bowls/ lids and some light pans that she had free reign over - but she always wanted to dig in all the other ones! Usually she got away with it Blum 3

HopeMommy, very soon afterwards we had to install cabinet locks. Lol He still persistently will sit there and try to open them for 30 minutes a day probably!! Smile LOL! That's why I wanted to do a page on it.
Thanks Everyone for all the compliments!! Yes, sometimes when you picture something in your head and it turns out nothing like you pictured, disappointment sets in. Oh well.

I like them Charys. I think the only thing that I thought when I saw that second one is that it does not look like your normal style. It is really nice though and I think the layout fits with the pictures. Smile

Those pages turned out cute!!! Charys, I love your work. you are so creative.

But I know what you mean though -- I have so many where the picture in my mind is not how it looked on paper. I can totally sympathize.

But never the less, it still looks cute Wink
