The Rehearsal--the process

There's been a few times I have posted about the process of how a page can change until you get to the final draft. I wanted to show that again today for the page I created for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's wedding rehearsal.

This was my first draft. I liked the colored pictures, but I think Nate's flannel shirt (gotta love Alaskan!) was making it challenging for me. I liked the hearts, but they weren't doing anything for me on this page. I liked the green background paper, too.

So then I created this page. I wanted to use some of the new papers and tempates from Little Dreamer. I wasn't really in love with this page, but I thought I would just stop. But each time I would see it on my blog or in my Picasa files, I would like it even less. So I knew I had to change things.

And so this is what I came up with. I like it much better! It's fun, bright, and I love the stitching on it. I'm really into digital stitching these days! For this layout I combined part of a template from Christine Newman from Little Dreamer, some stuff from Designer Digitals, and my own designs.

Happy Friday!

You did a great job spacing this post. I scrolled down and did not care for what the first 2 were...Then here comes the third and it is like day & night!!! I started laughing! I can't believe the difference! Amazing job!!!
(Don't forget, my opinion is just that...MY opinion)
Love you!

I love them all, but the last one looks more like your style! I asked on your previous post if that was real stitching, but I see now it isn't. It really looks real, I love it! :)
