Layout of the Day...

Do you ever feel like you get into a grove and you start to see particular patterns emerge everywhere you look, it happens to me quite often (perhaps because of the unusual amount of tetris I played in my younger days). Lately that pattern has been grids, everywhere I look...websites, scrappy mags, online galleries, I'm drawn to the grid. So I decided to try it on a layout myself(yep the layout I've been talking about since I began my foray into digi is the same layout) I also wanted to try out Emily's great tips on making pleated flowers she posted on the Studio Calico blog a couple of weeks ago(how time flies) oh yeah...and...I wanted to work in some stacked frames that I see Paula use all the time. And maybe that's the problem, individually I love all of the elements, together I'm not so sure...but two weeks is about the longest I've ever fussed with a layout and I'd say it's about time to lay down the cards on this one and walk away. Time to start something new, don't you think...

Note to self: I've been spoiled by my work machine with the full version of PS where cropping and straightening is a breeze. Trying to see if 'I can live with' just photoshop elements; definitely need to research how to do the perspective crop at some point.
