    Default frustrated!

    Trying to scrap pictures from our recent Red Rocks concert. Not sure if I'm using the wrong template, though I like the photo shapes, or if I just don't have the right kit. I've looked through all my kits since December. I started with a couple different ones but it's just not happening. What to do?

    Walk away from the computer .......
    walk away

    take a deep breath..
    then return.

    you have all the right "stuff" to make it perfect. If you can't find it, send me what you have and I will help you find a new kit.

    Thanks! I know you are right. A break is in order. Frustration does not lead to good creativity. I'll take a break and see what happens.

    I had a page I was working on yesterday that I just couldn't make myself happy with... so I deleted the whole thing and started over..... liking my new page much better now.

    Was the concert totally awesome?? Just love Michael Franti!

    THanks so much for your support. The concert was AMAZING. I've wanted to go to Red Rocks for over a decade and to see Michael Franti there first was perfect. He not only came out into the crowd, he sang and trotted ALL the way up the amphitheater and down. Afterwards he said, "That's a lot higher than I expected" as the crowd cheered. The vibe at his concert was so great. Full of energy and positive emotion.

    So glad you enjoyed! He was amazing when I saw him too... I even have a photo of his shoulder and armpit as he ran past me on his way around the crowd. He's such an inspiring person and performer!

    Whew! So I was about to scrap the whole thing. I was looking for a new psd to use, when I glanced at the thumbnail of my frustrating one and all of a sudden I saw what to do. Nonetheless, I've been working on it all day! I combined two different Ginger Bread Ladies kits: Goodnight and Boho Chic. My background paper is 3 papers combined with filter and opacity changes. And I had to remove most of the pieces of the template and move one of the photos. But I did it!

    Thanks for all the advice and commiseration .

    The misbehaving layout
