August Re-Do Challenge by Alanna

Here is my layout for the August Re-Do Challenge. I have been scrapping since October 2010 and this was my first ever layout. You can probably tell why I'm not happy with it! I had absolutely no clue about scrapbooking. I had a few supplies and great intentions and all I wanted to do was put photos on paper and into an album!!!  My style is still developing, but it's nothing like it was 10 months ago!! I am really proud of how far I've come with my scrapbooking in the last 10 months but I have always wanted to re-do this layout. The only thing I like about this layout is I wasn't scared of stamping like I am now!  As for my "new" layout - I love it! I love the grid design, and I am completely in love with distressing the edges right now. I have cropped the photos and distressed the edges... wouldn't have even thought of doing that 10 months ago! I have kept the embellishing to a minimum on the newer layout, but I do love going over the top with my embellishing normally - unlike in the original layout!  You can see more details in my blog post here -

Thanks :)

Now it's your turn to take the August Re-Do Challenge. See all the details HERE!
