Turkey Troubles




I have been trying for over 2 weeks to get this layout done.  I am not thrilled with it but it is done.  I would love suggestions if you have any thoughts!  

We were making turkey cookies with the kids and their cousins in the photos.   I found this great turkey paper at a local scrapbook store and had to have it! However I didn't think about the busyness of the paper or how I would use it.  So  I struggled even after I had a layout idea on how to make the pictures stand out from the busy paper.  I wanted to border the picture with turkeys and it worked but I had trouble figuring out how to make them truly look like turkeys.  I then had nowhere to put the journaling to a title, thus the gobble, gobble.  I may have to try hidden journaling because it could use a little explanation!

So the moral of this is, sometimes our best intentions don't work out so great and we have to make the best of it and move on!  The good news is I have one more piece to use in the boys' book so I have a chance to redeem myself!
