Saturday Scraplift: CT Spotlight

Today’s the fifth Saturday in March, and you know what that means: time for another CT Spotlight lift. Today we’re lifting the talented Chrissy (kikimama). It has been so much fun watching her darling children grow up before our eyes; I remember when Tom was born! Chrissy has a great eye for color and design, and her gallery is chock full of eye candy. Here are the pages the Creative Team lifted from Chrissy’s gallery:

Kim (KimR+) scrapped a great family photo on her page lifted from Chrissy’s My Today AAM page. I really like the centered, blocked design of both pages and the predominant use of a single focal color.

Jess (jesshunt) lifted Nursery Boy by Chrissy, and again, the design is strong and shows off the photos on both pages so well. I love that the focal photo on the left provides a natural place for the eye to enter and begin to move through the page.

There were so many wonderful pages I wanted to lift in Chrissy’s gallery, but I ultimately chose her tribute page to our dear friend Pattie Knox. I was drawn to the cut out heart which gave me a chance to practice some recently learned techniques about text paths.
