Lifting Maggie

Happy NSD!! I hope you all are having a great time scrapping the day away. There are some great prizes and awesome challenges, so be sure to get your layouts posted for a chance to win. :)Maggie and I are continuing with our "lifting" theme this week and I have a layout to share that was inspired by one from Maggie's gallery. I love Maggie's fun whimsical style...I can always spot her layouts. She is so creative with patterned paper and I had a really tough time choosing a layout to lift. But ultimately, I chose this one from the Garment District gallery...

I love the fun paper simple, but what an awesome eye-catching design! For my lift, I stuck pretty closely to Maggie's design with the large base of color (I used the artistan shaped paper as my base) and then the strips. I love how the journaling strips down the middle really bring it all together.

It took me less than an hour to put this page together. Coming up with a design is often the hardest part of scrapping, so lifting is awesome if you want to get some pages done quickly and easily. Happy scrapping!
