Scraplift Challenge, Take 2

Here is another scraplift comparison for this week's challenge:

My scraplift inspiration -

This is a layout that I had bookmarked at 2Peas by Kathy Martin. (Kathy also has a blog, found HERE). This layout attracted me for scraplifting for three main reasons -

1. Because of it's bright, bold colours and patterns, which are always a hit with me, as well as it's linear tendencies, which I gravitate towards always.

2. Because it used one 4x6 photo with a second 4x6 photo that had been cropped. This appealed to me because I can use the photos I have on hand - no fussy/fancy enlargements or smaller reprints.

3. For some reason, 2 seems to be a magic number with me. I commonly find myself with two 4x6 photos from one moment or event that I'd like to scrap and I sometimes find it challenging to create a 12x12 page with only 1 or 2 4x6's that doesn't end up looking like too much space for too few photos. This layout handles my dilemna nicely!

So, here is my scraplift:

I stuck pretty close to the original design, while obviously using different colours/patterns. Oftentimes when I scraplift, my final result ends up looking very different from the original, but not so much in this case. This layout was particularily satisfying for me to finish because I've had these two photos kicking around for years and I knew that I wanted to note them somehow, but could never quite put an actual layout together. I've decided that I am going to try to use the photos I have on hand, especially the older ones, so this scraplift gave me just the fix I needed to get this layout done.

Thanks for stopping by!
