Give Yourself a Lift....

This was a first for me.  I did a scraplift of myself!!!!! 

I created this page last year and it was one of my most favoritse ones that I did all year.  I had actually done it for a DT call at My Little Shoebox (which I didn't make!  :)  ).  But my page was in the top 3 a Two Peas for a day, and that made me happy! 


I love it so much and I was thinking about it a few weeks ago and decided to recreate the photo shoot and the page! 

I used the May Kit from Magpie Club, and tried to stick to a similiar color scheme.  



I had to flip the sketch becuase Charlotte was looking to the right this time, and I always orient my photos so that the subject is looking to the middle of the page (if I can).

I love all the layered pieces I used on the page, and I lifted some of the original elements like the black stitching around the border and the photo, and the pen lines around the scalloped circle.



If you have a page that you really love,  or perhaps even a reoccuring event that you have already scrapped about before, try lifiting yourself!  If you liked it the first time, you'll probably like it the 2nd time around, too!  :)

Such a great idea! And I have no idea how you narrowed down your choices. All of your pages are amazing to me! :)

Those are both really pretty layouts! I think it's a great idea that you recreated the photo shoot and did the same layout! It's things like that that really bring to your attention how much your child has grown!
Thanks for visiting my blog and the nice comments you left on my "Sweet" layout!

O.M.G. what superlicious layouts, hope you don't mind if I scraplift your pages!!! What a great idea about recurring photos, am going to have a think about it and hopefully I will find a subject to keep track of. Thanks so much for sharing.
