Ok, so am I the only blogger who sometimes has a hard time coming up with a title for my posts? I'm just not that clever, lol. Since there really is no point to this post, however, but to share a couple more layouts, I figured the one I came up with will work ;-)
Another Paper Trunk layout for CMK - I used the 1974 paper line this time. Love the colors and these swirls were begging to be cut-out!
This next layout was part of a scraplift challenge on 2peas. I joined this challenge because I just had a conversation at the crop this weekend about how I don't normally lift because it tends to complicate things in my brain to come up with ways to make it different enough from the original that it is "my own" and doesn't look like the same layout. We also had a discussion going at CMK the other day when, for my question of the day, I asked if people scraplift. Most of the answers were that they feel everyone lifts to a certain degree as we are constantly gaining inspiration from others and storing away little ideas we see to try on our own layouts. I think that is so true! I guess I used to have this idea of scraplifting as copying a layout completely, and although I know sometimes people will mimic a layout in its entirety, I do think it's more common for people to take inspiration away and put their own twist on it. So, the original layout that I lifted had a square frame around the photos with one of the photos peeking out, and that is the idea that inspired me that I built the layout around. Ironically, you'll see some similarities to the other layout posted above that I did this weekend before seeing the layout that I lifted! I guess I was already drawn to the frame idea, so it was meant to be that I saw this layout :-) If you are all still awake after my monologue, you can see the layout here, lol:
Hope everyone's week is going well - we're almost at hump day!
