Scrapology December Challenge

Each month we scraplift one layout and I am continually surprised by how differently our layouts turn out!  December's layouts are no exception.   Here is a link to Scrapology, with all the layouts. 

This month, we have scraplifted a fantastic layout by Wendy McKee.  I love all her elements - the different colours she has used which all coordinate beautifully and the linear but complex design, and this layout showcases what a character her son is. 

My photos tend to be more of holidays and events, so doing this type of layout I usually find a struggle.  However, after an obscene amount of procrastination and undue faffing about, I eventually pulled together this layout of my lovely niece, Asha. 

Once I'd gotten over the fact that one photo was a different orientation and I was still going to use it, I think it made it easier to break away from the strict grid idea and get a bit more free form movement into the layout.  All the papers and chipboard embellishments are Crate Paper, Brook - which is my favourite range to come out in the last year.  So much so - I believe I bought every matching doo dad and frippery in the range, which is very unlike me.  

It is also very unlike me to use so much product on a layout, as they are usually more technique based.   But now that I've bought all the furbelows and doo dads, I had better use them, and I really like how this layout turned out.  Why don't you go check out Scrapology and join in?  Once again, Jill has a fabulous prize on offer - a little something for you this Christmas, instead of the rest of the family?  Join us.  :)
