Now that I've finished scrapping my Seattle/kayaking vacation pictures, I decided to use the prompts from Shimelle's scrapbooking class to work on my Christmas pictures from last year. So, get ready for a bunch of holiday layouts! Today, Shimelle suggested finding one of your own layouts that you liked and using it as inspiration. I chose the layout above (from a previous vacation album). What I like most about the layout is the bold contrast of the colors and the way that bright blue print is featured prominently. I looked through my Christmas papers and found a bold green print that I loved. Unfortunately, I didn't have a full sheet of it. So, I adapted the idea and made the following layout:
I used a more subtle gingham print where I had used the blue flower print and then used the green print as an additional, smaller layer. I love how it turned out. As always, you can click on the picture to see a larger, clearer picture of the layout. The pictures are of my family's annual Christmas baking party. It's so much fun to get together with my brothers and sisters, and my kids love spending time with their cousins.
So, did you do Shimelle's Inspire Yourself challenge? If so, leave me a link. I love seeing the inspiration and what you did with it.
