Scraplift Sunday - week 9

Back with Scraplift "Monday". For the last week's challenge we were doing a page about our childhood memories. Lately it has been one of my favorite subjects to scrapbook. I had so many ideas, but decided to make a page I wanted to do for a long time. I was touched by lyrics in one song, and here is my page featuring those words:

I've said it before, and I will repeat it again. I LOVE how working on a page can take you all the way back, not just in miles but also in time! I couldn't afford to buy a ticket and visit Ukraine last week, but scrapbooking made it possible. I really took time working on this project, not because it was complicated, but because I like working slow on this type of layouts.


Lora's page was so lovely this week again. There's just something about our childhood pictures that makes these pages extra special. I love her design with all the strips of patterned paper. She underlined her pictures with alphabet line at the top and ruler at the bottom of her pictures - the key elements for this school themed layout. Tilted frame grabs your attention for the focal point of the page:

And now, for our SS Challenge week 10, we are going to be using a color inspiration. I want you to find something with a color combination that you like (it may come from a magazine, clothes, home decor, flowers, nature and more), make a page with same color choices and send me pictures of both - your color inspiration and a layout.

I hope to see your work soon!

  1. Anya - your page looks so good, and the coloring works great with the black and white. I especially like the background paper and the worded paper, they add something special to the page, like a dream about childhood. You will not believe this, but I was going to use a different set of black and white pictures and my journaling was going to be about wanting to go back to the childhood days....wow! Love the page. Now i definitely have to do my page :)
    Are you the smaller one in the main picture? If so, Liana looks so much like you :)

  4. Thank you Lora! I still have at least three more pages I want to do on the same subject...I guess one of these week we'll do a "free" assignment, then we can share pages in between, like the one you want to finish.

    I miss Anka too! :( Maybe she has finals. In that case we'll excuse her. Hey, Anka, I can still add your page if it's done. Let me know.

  19. And, yea, don't do your scrapbooking layouts at 12:30am cause it seems like you're wacky at that time of the hour, lol. Well, maybe I'm wrong, maybe you're more creative at that hour, who knows?
