One good layout

I am a slow scrapper and when I dont like something about a layout I take off and do something else.. but this situation was different... I tried my hand to join one contest bec it was a previously planned layout -- i loved this flower and sketched its shape and I started sculpting the insides.I wasnt sure of the results but I wanted it dimensional and real looking,..
I am not a contest person -- its not the high I thrive on... I am super happy I finally scrapped my fave wedding photo of me minutes before becoming MRS. JOANNE YAP -- its a photograph with a 'perfect smile'... I knew I was going to a new phase in my life and I knew I was really nervous but it was a smile of longing to experience the rest of my life with my soon to be husband.

Now 7 years later I finally was able to put in a layout -- I had planned a simple cardstock type layout but haaaay I fell into my Basic Grey trap and made a Scarlett's letter page. FOr some reason these papers really make me sink my teeth into it.. I am even finally realising I like this better than URBAN COUTURE..
Oh well -- win or lose -- this layout is a winner because finally the procastinating scrapper that I am did something I wanted to do,.. so one notch off my many to do list !
