"The best laid plans of mice and men." or in this case scrapbooker. I made so many mistakes with this layout. I did not estimate the amount of hexagons on the page correctly. I didn't like the original plan of embellishments above the photo. I tore the background paper several times. I did not measure the proper cutouts for the hexagons. It was crazy!
So how do you fix mistakes? Some of it you just live with. Some of it you hide and at times it throws off the balance of the page. Misjudge something, adjust the design. How do YOU fix or hide your mistakes?
Rock-a-bye: I seized an opportunity of a special moment with mom and daughter sleeping to take a photo for Ali's baby book as well as her scrapbook.

What started out as a simple, straightforward page ended up a bit of a nightmare. Once I placed the hexagons I had planned on cutting out some of the smaller images from Little Darlings paper. I estimated wrong. Most of the cutouts were too large. I ended up cutting out the tiniest of figures. It was hard but well worth the effect.
I ended up satisfied with the results with the exception of the tag at the top of the paper. Maybe you can give me a tip on how to fix torn paper.
It never hurts to share your mistakes. It hurts to not share and not get help. It works for me!
