Dress Ups - Scrap The Girls

Welcome to 2014!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Do you have any new years resolutions? I have about 50 =/ One of which is to scrap more! So far so good. Which brings me to...
My first layout of the year! I think it is a good one.

Playin' Dress Ups (with nanna)

I love how different Chloe looks in each photo yet it is pretty much just a different hat and minus a skirt.

I was inspired by the current sketch challenge over at Scrap The Girls blog. A scrapping challenge blog that is dedicated to scrappy just the females in our lives!

This sketch went perfectly with these photos as I was able to split the page into two sections which reflect the two different photos, the soft pinks for the 'glam baby' and the wood with cassette tapes for the 'rock chick'. Sad to think Chloe is probably only going to see cassette tapes in museums...

In fact it was the cassette paper in the Websters Pages 'Recorded' line that prompted me to use almost entirely Websters products. All the papers are from Recorded collection and most embellishments from the Postcards From Paris 2 collection.

I played around with the papers for a long long time. Trying different boarder strips and switching the papers over trying to get the straight edge between the papers to work for me. Then inspiration hit. I decided to stagger the transition using the patterns themselves, pieces of wood and strips of 'arrows' overlapping.

So there it is. My first page of the year and hopefully a lot more to come!
Thanks for checking it out!
XoXoX Nicole.
