A Note from Aly
I started this page over a year ago. I just couldn’t get it right no matter how hard I tried! You can see the photo I took of it when I had things mostly done, but nothing was adhered yet. I took the photo so I could get a bird’s eye view of the page and figure out what I didn’t like about the design, elements, etc. I got so frustrated with it I decided to put it aside and let it sit for awhile (which usually helps me when I’m stumped). Well, after more than a year and one move across the country, I finally dug it out and got it done! The top photo is the result. I changed the placement of the photos, and simplified things by making it a one page layout and using less stuff. While it’s not perfect, I’m much happier with it now and can put that page to rest.

March Fun Fact
After years of swearing by glue sticks, I finally got an ATG gun for Christmas and am so happy with it I’ll never use another glue stick on a scrapbook page or card again.
