have you ever been intimidated by a photo?

I am struggling at the moment to complete this weeks challenge on UKS. WHY?????? Because I'm a bit scared that I don't do the photo justice.

Sounds crazy doesn't it, but it happens to me quite often. Although, I have to admit mostly with heritage photos. Yesterday I scoured my stash looking for that perfect paper to use with the baby photo.  I have some lovely baby sheets too! However, they either make the blanket look dirty, or the pages look dirty against the photo, or they are not babyish enough..... OR.....OR.....OR.....

Does that even make sense?? I'm reading as a type, thinking 'What on earth are you blethering about????' .... but the fact remains....I have lost my MOJO. Maybe i should offer some blog candy of my own as a reward if anyone finds it and sends it back to me.

I can't even decide on usng a sketch because I need to find papers that I am happy with, as well as a sketch for inspiration. Well, back to the drawing board...wish me luck

I know how you feel...it can take me all day just to find the right papers to use with a photo- frustrating, but a good feeling when you eventually get it just right!

oh yes I have very definitely been intimidated by a photo - it was a beautiful black and white shot of Willow and I ended up asking Beckie Dreyer for some inspiration, she then made the most gorgoeus layout for me - will have to find you the post on my blog
