Taking Up The Challenge!

Daphne from Scrapbooking Insanity has challenged us this week to create 'twin layouts', as in two pages that do not lead on from one another like a double page often does but are very similar to each other. (Daphne explains it better than me!).
Click HERE to see Daphne's example.

As I had my scrapbook club last night I decided to take up the challenge and use some older photo's from my 2013 holiday that I discovered unscrapped!
The photo's were from the same beach but I wanted to keep the ones of just my girls separate from the group photo's so it worked out perfectly for this challenge. 

Here is my twin layout and I think as long as you use the same papers but a different design they go together nicely.

Here is my first layout with my girls exploring the rock pools in a small cove in Ibiza.
I know the spelling is wrong! I have rectified it!!!
The papers are all Echo Park For The Record apart from the paper I cut the sea critters from.

I kept my embellishing and title clustered together.

For the right page I simply took more of the same papers and just changed the design so it looked different but connected by the colours.
Did you spot the cute fishy above the letter D? I had cut him out but he didn't go with the other shells and I didn't want to not use him! 

A similar embellishment cluster but the title was placed along the bottom as it was quite long after cutting all the letters out (and I wasn't going to re-cut in a smaller font!). 

There you are another challenge met and I will definitely try this with my multi-photo designs again.
Thanks Daphne for the awesome challenge!
If you would like to play along pop on over to Daphne's blog and catch the details there.

Thanks for stopping by and I really should get on with the gardening now!
Bye! xx

  2. Fab pages. Well done for keeping up with Daphne's challenges. I read them, think about them and don't get round to doing them before the next one pops up.

  3. What a great set of layouts Kerry! I especially love all the beach themes things you cut out, they fit really good with the photos and the rest of the papers!
    Glad you like my challenges and thanks for taking part!
