Just the two of US

This layout is kind of special to me as it marks my 50th layout since I started last January! When I looked back at my crude and very simple initial layouts, my style has changed a lot, and I guessed that it will continue to evolve as I scrap more.

This layout is inspired by a few challenges (hope that's OK.. ). First is the Scrap, Create & Inspire Pick & Mix challenge for September. We have to choose a theme, and pick one item from each DT's list of things to include in the layout. For this one, I chose a circle theme, with distressed ink, ribbons, laces, and butterflies to include into my layout.

Again, this layout is inspired by Creative Scrappers Sketch #68, which coincidently has a circle element in it.. here is the sketch by Kristine.

The colors and the 'feel' of the layout is inspired by Basic Grey poster challenge. We have to let our imagination run wild and scrap something out of this photo. I think it is a lovely photo, with a fresh and lively feel to it. That is what I want to convey in my layout.. Oh, and of course, we have to include something from Basic Grey in it too. I used Lime Rickey papers as the background and underlying green & yellow paper beneath the circle.


So here it is... my take on the challenges.. This is a picture of my sweethearts during a photoshoot at Amru's studio. They just look so sweet, especially Zareef :)

Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
