Finishing what I started..

I often find myself having to walk away from a layout that's not working for me, but it is rare for me to not go back to it at some point.
I actually find that sometimes leaving it alone (sometimes for weeks!) helps me to focus on where I want it to go. It's a little like doing a crossword puzzle for me, I often find that answers I've struggled with sometimes leap out at me the next time I go back to it.
So here's one I started and struggled with at my last crop, this is my gorgeous grandson Elliott enjoying what can only be a rare moment of sunshine!!

I have decided that this year I WILL get around to all those layouts I have had on the back burner and I WILL complete all those I started and never got back to! (If I say it enough I might actually believe it myself!)
I have kept up with last years resolution to use up all my old stash and make it up into kits and I have found this really helpful and even enjoyable! Although weirdly my stash pile still isn't showing any signs of dwindling, although my albums are getting fuller!
Here's one of my recent efforts:
