Do you get stuck sometimes, you have a layout to start on but everything goes blank!!
A scrap lift is the perfect solution!! Have a look in all the galleries of forums, blogs on the net, and even magazines. If you see a layout done by someone else use it for your inspiration and just let everyone know who the artist was, so there is no copyright troubles!
I created this layout for Sarah’s Challenge at Home and Scraped! To use a song title and use that on your layout, make it Summery and scrap lift someones work! I was flicking through this months Australian Scrapbook Ideas which is my fave mag at the moment and found this gorgeous page created by the oh so talented Karen Shady!!! Have a look at Karen’s beautiful blog for some more inspiration or drooling! lol!!
I took these pics of dad and my boys yesterday and knew this is what I wanted to scrap!! They were sitting under the trees in the yard and having a chat! The photos are Summery, but I wanted to scrap them a bit vintage! I used Stevie Wonder’s 1966 song title “A Place In The sun’ as my page title! As this was going to be an extra 365 page I decided to make a companion page for it with the rest of this weeks pics!! I am quite happy with this double layout!!
I think they have blended quite well together and thanks Karen for the inspiration!!

I am feeling a bit blah at the moment. A lot going on and it’s doing my head in!! I am so looking forward to a few days break with my sister and family over the weekend. The kids want to get together before school goes back. We thought we would meet in Geelong on Sat morn and do some shop then head back over to Ballarat and stay a couple of nights!! Have a bit of a catchup and may be a scrap and the kids can have some ‘cousin’ time together!!!!
Anyway, I felt like having a scrap last night and had a few pics from my shop trip with my friend Pam last week!! I couldn’t resist taking a pic of all the gorgeous pp and flowers in Chandon Craft!!
I used them to do Bek’s Just For Fun Challenge at Challenge Heaven!! You pic a layout of someone who’s work you like and do your own version of it!! I was peeking in my new issue of Aust Scrapbook Ideas and found this cute layout by Pam Thorburn on page 86 an I new I wanted to do this one with all the distressing she used!!
This is her layout, with a very vintage feel to it!!
And this is mine! A little different as I tweaked the layout for my smaller pics!! I did a lot of distressing and used the Beau Chateau papers from Stampin’ Up!!. I inked, sewed, distressed, paper rolled, tearing, masking ans stamping on it! I am really happy with it and the journal reads – “It would be a lovely ‘DREAM’ to have an endless supply of pattern papers and flowers! I just’ HEART’ them”
