Scrapping Escape...

Do you ever 'need' to get lost in scrapping? 
To shut out the world and chill where there is no sense of time or place?
sigh... isnt it good!

I did this today... 


'Day After Tomorrow'
Loved the colour combo - white with a touch of blue which can be seen (very pale) in the book paper
My eldest dd Meaghan




The theme is 'The Hungry Caterpillar' so picked up the colours and kept a garden scene.
I'm not sure how I feel about the background I've created.  I started with a blank piece of white bazzill cardstock and got out the paint.  And now when I look at it, one minute I cringe, next minute I really like it, then go back to cringing again etc etc.   I must be loosing my judgement, cos I cant tell what it is that keeps me questioning it.
