Thankyou BREE!!!!

I’m not sure if I blogged about this before, but while we are on the topic of Scrapping Inspiration, I have to share this website with you all….

Scrap-maps.com by the wonderful Bree Clarkson.

These sketches are AWESOME!

I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this, but I have a real weakness when it comes to fitting in more than one photo on a layout. And then as soon as I try to fit in some journalling too, well, forget it. My layouts almost always look yuck. But I’m running out of single photo *moment* layouts and it’s time to scrap some EVENTS instead. So quite late last night, I jumped onto Bree’s site and started hunting for ideas.

This layout was inspired by one of her sketches…. it’s not the same, but it was definitely an *aha* moment.

Not to mention that it suddenly evolved into a 2 pager, which is a rare thing for me… and most other digi-scrappers I know…. I don’t know what the percentage is, but the vast majority of layouts are singles.

But this was GREAT FUN and I loved doing it and will be doing it again!!

Credits: Papers and stuff from Playtime Maxim by Trish Jones (from the Eclectic Mix CD again). Tag template from the AWESOME new set for sale at ScrapArtist.com. Loving their sale at the moment! Fonts used were Another, CK Mixnmatch, 4990810. As always, created in Photoshop7. I am especially proud of my ribbon that is wrapped around the photo block on page2…. my skills are definitely improving.

On a side note, these photos, were of course, taken with my baby camera…. and seriously, you can’t tell that much of a difference. Canon quality!!

After this was finished, I actually got another layout *done* but I’m still not sure if it’s finished or not, so you’ll just have to be patient a bit longer!! *wink*

So, stay tuned!!

Oh, and BY THE WAY!! How do you like the new look? Let me know, ok??

    Great layout. I’m loving the doubble page too. It is a rare thing in digi land, and seeing this I am inspired to give it a go.
