After nearly a year and a 1/2 of occasionally posting LO's to my fave scrapbook site I was invited to join a critique group. I have to say I've never really wanted to put myself out there like that for the harsh reality of what people really think of my schtuff but this has already been an eye-opener for me. The original of this LO is below but after taking my group's comments under advisement and banging my head against my craft table for awhile (never recommended) I made some necessary changes to this and I'm so much happier with it now.
I'm thinking this is the start of a fantastic learning experience (or the start of a severe frontal headache) but either way I'm hoping to churn out some great stuff this year! Another special thanks to these ladies for pushing me to produce the best that I can!
