Scraplifting Myself...

Yep I scraplifted myself!!
Why?
Well it's not the first time I've done it, sometimes if I'm lacking mojo 
I will look at previous layouts and pick a favourite and copy it.
I guess it's sort of going by the adage of, 'if it aint broke don't fix it'!
Well if it's a page I really like I will use it as a base to start 
a new page and they usually end up slightly different anyway.

Years ago when I was scrapping the twins baby photo's and because they were invariably both in the same photograph I would scrap two near identical layouts, one for each of their albums!  
So yes I've scraplifted myself plenty of times before.
This time it was because I created a layout for someone else and totally loved how it turned out.
I knew I was going to create the same or similar page for myself one day.

Here's the original I created for Lisa Oxely.
the original post is here.


And here's my scraplifted version.


This flower started out bright yellow but with enough Dylusions sprays I guess you can cover anything!


The title is a quote from my daughter.  Totally random, out of the blue 
but very sweet and cute.  I had to document it. 


The background is done with a Prima Finnabair butterfly Stencil, Crayola watercolours 
and random rubons.

Do you scraplift yourself often? sometimes? ever?

Thanks for stopping by. :)

  2. I loved the first layout and I love the second one too.. the back ground looks wonderful.. and I reckon I have a design that just seems to happen over and over sometimes.. and if it works then it is a great idea to use it again!
