Falling In Place

Yesterday I posted a layout that sat on my work table almost a week while I moved the pieces around.  I just couldn't get the look I wanted.  Finally I got fed up and stuck everything down - and I liked it, but I didn't love it.  Every once in a while I get stuck and can't seem to get a layout together.

And then there are the days when things just fall into place.  Artful Delights is having a sketch challenge.  I liked the sketch a lot, but the deadline is June 23.  I'd spent so much time on the previous layout and we are planning to visit family this weekend, so I didn't think I would have time to finish a layout.  But tonight all the pieces fell in place. I got my layout done in about an hour -- and I really like it.

I used lots of different lines - coredinations, bo bunny, little yellow bicycle and pink paislee products are all mixed together.  I went way out of my comfort zone and turned my journaling on its side.  And I think I ended up with a fun layout for the first day of school (2 years ago, but I never said I was caught up.)

Why are some layouts such a struggle when others fall into place?

(Sorry this picture is a little fuzzy; its raining out and I am having trouble getting a clear shot.
