Here's Lisa's great layout:
I knew I had some 3 x 4 pics recently printed from Snapfish, so I looked through that stack and found some of my daughter and her boyfriend on the trip they took out west last summer. Here's my lift:
Although Lisa chose plain cardstock for her background, I went with a paper that had a subtle dot pattern to it. My colors are really different too, but otherwise the design of the layout is pretty much a copy. I had fun adding little embellishments throughout the layout, but I tried to stick to a basic triangle pattern to create unity.
I really liked the movement on Lisa's original layout, so I tried to mimic that by using the overlay in a tilted way and by tilting my embellishment in the bottom right corner. These chipboard letter stickers were the perfect color blue, so I used those instead of the title treatment that Lisa chose. I like hers better, but I was trying to use what I had. I wish my journaling were more profound, but I didn't take the trip. That limitation meant that I didn't have that much to say. At least it gives the basics, and I do like these pics of Kelsey and her boyfriend, Jake.
One of my favorite things about scraplifting is that simply choosing different colors and theme of pics can totally change the feel of a layout. Even though my design is pretty much a copy of Lisa's, I think it feels totally different because of color. I liked using the PL cards on my layout too; I have so many that I feel like I'll never use them all. I purposefully didn't round the corners on my photos, mainly because my corner rounder broke a couple of days ago (horror!) but also because I liked the contrast between the photos and the embellishment pieces.
Here are the layouts once again - Lisa's original first and then mine.
Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you'll check back tomorrow for challenge #3. :)
