Inspired by Challenge: Hey Cutie Layout by Stephanie Buice

Hey everyone Stephanie here today to share my Inspired by Layout,
for this assignment I chose to go with this layout created by Melinda Spinks found here: 

Melinda and I have very similar design styles so it was an easy pick for me.
I love her layout and the colors she used, it's perfect!
Although I loved her color choices I chose to go with a little more neutral palette to fit my picture.

Here is my layout:

Some of the reasons I chose her layout were the clean simple design and I really liked how she did the circles drawing your eye from the top to bottom of the page. Such a great design.

Melinda added way more detail and embellishments to her layout which I also really liked, however I chose to keep mine a bit more simple to fit my style.
I think that even when using an inspiration layout or sketch it's important to always try to keep it as true to you as you can. 
I added my journalling and title underneath of my pictures to keep the focus on them.

I always find that pulling out a sketch or other layout is an easy way to break me out of a scrap funk, it allows me to easy back into my creativity and get the ball rolling again. How do you solve your scrap blues? Do you use Pinterest for inspiration?
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
