Scraplifting Weekend 6

The sun is shining right in my west facing windows as we head into evening here in Texas. I'm still having tons of FUN scraplifting my favorite bloggers!

Sandra typically shares her Project Life spreads, Project365 photos and progress on updates to their little house, but this layout from a recent uncharacteristically productive crop called out to be scraplifted. I particularly liked how each of the two photos was layered over a "messy" stack of papers with a doily and various embellishments mixed in. On my layout, I was excited to use the "Look at Me!" die cuts because they came from the scrapbook kits I received on the cruise where these photos were taken!


This time I also took inspiration from the theme of Sandra's layout - then & now. While both of my photos are from our cruise, my journaling shares a then & now type story.


This was a FUN layout to put together and a great way to use up some patterned paper scraps.


Thanks for the inspiration Sandra!

I've said it before and I'll say it again - "comparing" layouts are my favourites.

I love this idea of a scrap lifting weekend scrap lifting favorite bloggers (or perhaps all those things on Pinterest I've got pinned.)

Sandra said...

What an honor, thank you. And goodness what a lovely layout you've created ... Makes me want to scraplift yours :)
