When Sylvia (smcloone) posted this lovely page for the Simply Done Challenge, it captured my attention immediately. I love the inviting photograph and the way she pushed it right to the edge of her page, leaving all that delicious white space. The colorful brushwork and simple title and journaling are the perfect finishing touches. Take a look at how the Creative Team lifted Sylvia’s page.
LeAnne (digishoes) used an adorable photo of her daughter that just pops against the dark grey background. In addition to brushwork, she used cut ups, paper strips, and a doily for interest behind the picture. The journaling beneath the photo extends the vertical line of her design nicely.

Joanne (jcaruth910) got out the chalk and had fun with this cute page about her cat Toby. I love how the green chalkboard background paper matches his eyes. The chalked chevrons and arrow do a great job of leading the viewer’s eye to Toby’s picture.

I got to meet my great niece last week and couldn’t wait to use one of the pictures I took for this lift. Like LeAnne, I used a pink and gray color scheme to complement Savannah’s pink dress and fuchsia changing pad. I had a lot of fun selecting and coloring the brushwork to ground the photo.

Sylvia’s great design lends itself to all sorts of inspiration. I’m eager to see where it will take you and will be looking forward to seeing your page in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge Gallery. Take it to the edge, my friends!
