Ella's Pink Scrapbook - Challenge 2

This week's layout challenge at TPE is a makeover challenge! We're challenging you to take an old layout and give it a makeover.

I went as far back as one of the very first layouts I ever did! This would have been probably the mid 90's. I had gone to a Creative Memories party and that's how I initially got into scrapping. Back then all you need was some markers, stickers, decorative scissors and some shape templates that you trace the shape onto the photo and cut out. Yeah those were the simple times lol. This layout that I made over is from my college days (early 1990's). Unfortunately the photos are not that great and the weird cuts & stickers on the photos posed a challenge. Here is how my layout started out.


And here is the makeover! After trimming out the photos a bit the ended up being kind of small so I decided to group them together. I enjoyed using my cricut for my layout too, I am loving that machine.
Be sure to head on over to The Pink Elephant to see what the rest of the team did this week and we'd love to see your makeovers!

That is one awesome Scrap Make-over! I love the colors! Isn't funny how most of us seem to have started with Creative Memories?

Love it Trudi!
