Scraplifting

Hi!

Today I have a layout I've completed for the latest Stamp A Memory Challenge, which was to scraplift a layout from their blog.  Scraplifting is where you create a page that copies ideas and designs from someone else's layout, either in full or part.  The layout I based mine on is one done by my upline, Sue Madex.  You can view it here.  I chose this layout because I loved the way the photo told the story, so there was no need for extensive journaling.  The simplicity of the page is really appealing and I hope I have done her justice in my scraplift.


My photo was quite dark, so I wanted to use some bright cheerful papers to lift the page.  I chose the now retired Washington Apple DSP.  The photo was quite a special occasion - it was the first time that these three generations of my husband's family had been all together in the one place for a very long time.  We set the camera up on a timer and hoped for the best!

I think the title I chose tells the story - We Are Family.  However I couldn't resist adding some journaling.  To preserve the simplicity I loved in Sue's layout I hid the journaling on a tag that slides out of the right side of the photo.
