Welcome to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog hop! You should have gotten here from Jemma's blog. If not, you can start over at the challenge blog.
This month's challenge is a fun one! "Scraplifting (taken from the Pebbles Blog) is the the act of "lifting" or copying ideas and/or designs from another person’s scrapbook page to use in your own pages. Designs or ideas can be copied in whole or in part. And most importantly be sure to give credit where credit is due. If you do "lift" someone else's idea be sure to mention where the idea originated."
"Mini Challenge #2: Scraplift YOURSELF
Look back at some of your older work. It could be something that you absolutely love or something from long ago that you wish you could have done better. Now your challenge is to make it again, but using your kit."
Personally, I love a good scraplift! It's a fun way to get ideas, and make them your own. The idea of scraplifting ourselves is even better! It's a great way to appreciate our own work in a new way, and look to it for inspiration.
Here is the layout I've chosen to scraplift. I originally got the idea for this layout from Julie Fei-Fan Balzers blog on this post. Her challenge was to make a layout, where you split the page right down the middle, and use items of equal weight on either side of the line. I did cheat a little by placing an embellishment in the bottom right hand corner of the photo.
Here is what I came up with. I even chose to do masking on the background, use buttons, and the "extra" embellishment in the right hand corner of the photo, as I did on my original. They do look similar, but not identical. I encourage anyone to try this type of layout! It feels a little strange at first, but you may be surprised at how you like the end result!
Your next step on the blog hop is Thomisia's blog. Have fun looking at all these fantastic blogs, and please leave some love for everyone if you get the chance! Don't forget to link your projects to the Mr. Linky post on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, for a chance to win some awesome prizes!
