Throwback Thursday - 2007 -- My First Published Layout

For the last two Thursdays, I've shared old digital layouts from my archives.  Continuing with that theme today, here's another page from way back in 2007 -- my first ever published layout, in Digital Scrapbooking Magazine, September 2007.

I think this page used Carrie Stephens' papers and elements.  I scanned the map from our trip and created paths we took on top of it.  I also remember spending time creating the folded edge and shadowing beneath and highlights on top to create a curved effect.

How do you feel looking back at creations / photos / artwork from long ago?  Do you ever try to re-create images later?
