Scraplifting Weekend 7

I completed another layout early on this beautiful Sunday here in Texas as I continue scraplifting my favorite bloggers!

Amy and I coached together in the last two Finding Photo Freedom workshops at BPC, and we've met in person and had lots of  FUN cropping together at Scrappin' Goodtime several times over the past couple of years. She is a digital scrapbooker who focuses on telling everyday stories through her layouts and photography. She shares her approach to using color on her pages in this post, and I chose her Naked Lady Tree layout to scraplift. I liked the neutral color palette and the placement of the title and journaling together, however I moved my title and journaling above the photos as that worked better with my papers.

This page will go in the Culinary Delights section of our cruise album.

Thanks Amy for the inspiration!

I'm settled in for afternoon of watching football, but I'm hoping to lift one more layout before the weekend comes to an end. Have you found time for creating this weekend?

As you might have guessed, I was drawn to the neutral base on this one, with that lovely pop of red your photo provides.

Thanks Melissa! I'm glad I was able to inspire you and you were able to scrapbook with us this weekend even if you weren't there.

I have to say with this lovely neutral background your photos really shine through

24/7---I love that title. You can use it for so many things. You picked a good topic to use it on!
