Second Attempt...a little different

So here is my second copy of the same photo layout. I used a few different papers in similar colors for this one, mainly because I didn't have enough of the same paper left.

The photo below shows the left top of the page. It's very similar to the first one except that the inside of the circle has more green tones.

This is the bottom right of the page. The butterfly is in a different position, and the corner colors have been switched. The flower on the right is a bit larger as well. Everything else is pretty much the same.

What can I say? I like big flowers.......this one has a larger center than the other.

Here are the two of them side by side. They give you the same feel, and yet they're a bit different. Now to decide who gets which one....

In the next few days I will be making up the 8x8's of my grandson. Until then, have a nice week!


  1. Both of these albums are absolutely beautiful Carmen....something to treasure through the generations!

    I'm going to the craft shop today to have a look for supplies and help....I'm still not sure what you are using for paper...yours seem a lot sturdier than regular cardstock.

    Anyway...love the blog, and thanks for posting pics on facebook, it helps me to remember to look in here.....cheers....Maureen:))

  2. Gorgeous! I love them both! I love the flowers and the shimmery look! Fantastic!
