Page Makeover Challenge: March

Hi there . . . it is Mollie aka readstoomuch I am teaming up with Sarah (sterkeurs) for the Page Makeover challenge. I love the idea of making a page over again . . . I love the challenge of using some of the new and fabulous papers and elements with old photographs to jazz up a layout that you feel might be a little stale . . . . or using new photographs with a page layout which you love and just needs a little tweaking!  Sarah is posting this for me . . . my computer seems to be fighting with me these days.  Thanks so much Sarah!

I would love for you to join Sarah (sterkeurs), Merrilee (digigrandma), & Esther (esther_a) in the gallery for the March Page Makeover Challenge.

We are going back in our own galleries to the month of March in a year other than 2015 and choosing a layout to remake. (If you haven’t been around long enough for March in a previous year, just choose a layout from the layouts which you do have in the gallery.)

Merrilee’s March Redo uses an photo of her beautiful little grandson from a 2010 layout in a wonderfully new and fresh page design . . . she chose a single the photo from the older page and gave it a new life by enlarging & converting it to b/w.

Esther’s Redo of her March 2013 layout “This is You” into the new “Amy Home & Ironing” . . . is not a classic remake, but a layout similar to her older page. She used the same template & added some different photos. Esther added a few laundry style elements to match the page theme, and stitched things around a bit. Both layouts are simple in classic Esther style and equally lovely.

Sarah chose a layout from March 2013 of her darling son, which she particularly likes as an inspiration for her Challenge layout today. Sarah changed very little other than the background paper and the colors  . . . moved a few elements around and added a lovely fresh photograph of her pretty daughter to come up with a striking remake of a classic.
