Imperfect Photos, and Reused Layout, and Creative Awesomeness

A while back I pulled a layout from a book the reason being is that I had found more photos that belonged together and originally thought when I had done the layout the first time.  As that was the case, I had to redo the layout.  I don't normally do this, but I have been working on preserving the memories of my mother's photos - and well this occasion called for it in the name of posterity!  As a result, I was left with a layout and supplies that I did not want to discard - there was nothing wrong with them, the photos had just been lifted off of it.  So I saved the layout with no photos.  And it sat and sat.  One day, while flipping through photos of me and hubby, I found some we took for Valentines day a while back.  And I thought of the discarded layout sitting somewhere in my crafty mess.  So I went and found it.  The original title was "Valentines Day Art" just as it is now - without the art part.  It had been a simple layout with only 2 4x6 photos.  I have more than 2 photos in varying sizes.  After a bit of playing around, this is what I came up with:

The original layout how the title the same as above.  I covered the Art part with the flower.  The journaling spot in addition to the red flower and the embellishment cluster were also part of the original layout.  I added the pattern paper, new photos, the date banner and the flower clusters.  I was so excited how this turned out, and the fact that I was able to recycle something that would have just been thrown out.

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty filled day!
