MDS Monday #3

I'd planned to work on a few projects last week - I have some new stamp sets and paper that are screaming to be used - really, I can hear them all the way from the basement - but this was a tough layout for me. I found the idea somewhere in cyberspace and I just had to try a version of my own. It was an easy layout, but I think the problem started when I couldn't let go of the original design. Yup - I was so focused on recreating the layout that I kind of forgot to tap into my own creativity. Strange how that happens...

Really, if I'd been smart, I would have set it aside and come back to it, but I just couldn't let it go. I worked on it all week, tweaking different elements, rearranging, adding and deleting. I think I finally have a page that I can say I'm happy with. And I'm done tweaking - PROMISE!

So, drumroll please...here's this week's UDI MDS Monday Challenge:

What do you think? Is it worth a week of fussing? Maybe, maybe not - but I like it and I doubt Andrew will be as critical as I am when he's looking through his scrapbooks. :)

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the awesome UDI ladies created for the challenge!
