From chilled out to busy…

So the last few days have been fairly relaxed. We had two days off for snow and then yesterday I just needed to play catch up with grocery shopping, etc.  Tomorrow is our sweet Emily’s 11th birthday! So lots to do today to get ready for her celebration.

I can’t believe our baby is going to be eleven.  It’s quite a milestone to get past being able to see your life on your 10 little fingers. I’m sure she wouldn’t believe it, but I remember this well.

I have this layout to share today.  The challenge this week at Studio Calico was to use ruffles.  How fun I thought!!  So I decided to make box pleats with the paper bags the kits come in.  Loved playing with some of the goodies that came in the Baker’s Dozen kit that arrived just yesterday! 

The only thing is, I had one of those moments with this morning, where I questioned the pink. In the daylight I thought it was a little bright, so I decided to go back and mist it as you see above.  I couldn’t lift the pink matte because the rub one was already on.   Now I’m not so sure.

Here’s the layout before. What do you think? 

Obviously, I can’t go back now but should I have just left it alone? I would love your comments so I can either stop myself next time or trust my instincts.

    i prefer the one with the mist…it's such a slight difference, but it gives it just what it needs (in my opinion) great decision!
