I was so glad to get these photos, since I love this little face that Sirius makes, but I had a hard time finding the right papers and mood for this layout. And, of course, after I made it I found that I have a blue piece of paper with raindrops on it that probably would have worked better.... But, despite having issues, I went ahead with this layout using paper from my March Gossamer Blue paper add-on. I wanted raindrops, but I don't have the grey Dylusions mist, so I tried dripping some alcohol ink on the paper. It worked up at the top, but I had to cover a BIG "oops" with that flair button, which is why it's kinda random up there. There's a reason I don't use mists and stuff on my layouts, and this shows why!
Do you ever have a hard time making a page when you haven't scrapbooked? What helps you get out of it? I feel like I forced these layouts a bit too much and that didn't help the situation.
