The second installment of my layouts inspired by Scrapbook Generation is also pretty much a direct copy, inserting my photos. I swapped the position of the 4x4 with the 4x6 on the lower right page for directionality. It's always good to have your subjects looking inward rather than off your page so that's why I did this. I also had to change the patterned papers just a bit because I had already used some of this collection and didn't have enough left to create it exactly how they did. In the end, really minor changes.
This collection is also Echo Park, Everday Eclectic. I initially was not excited about this one, thinking the subdued colors would never work for anything that I scrap. But once I put it together...I like it!
One thing that really helps on this layout and with this paper collection, I think, is inking the edges. That's what makes the edges look more defined. I do this to all my papers and photos...sometimes the embellishments, too. It just looks more finished...to me, anyway!
