When is a double not a double?

When it's two single layouts designed to compliment each other but created individually with the same products. Well that's my claim and I'm sticking to it. Because I really don't care for doubles!

The story ..

I had the most adorable photos I wanted to scrap of our friends' gorgeous little girl but I hadn't known what size I wanted to scrap them in. So I printed them all in 5x7, 4x6 and 2Ups. I'm also a challenge junkie, and because of my recent battle with anxiety (see HERE) I really didn't want to create a 'mess' with these photos. So I turned to some challenges for inspiration.

The layouts ..

First is the layout I created with the current sketch at Anna's Craft Cupboard, the details of which you can find HERE.

Do you see how fabulous they will look together in an album, but that they're not actually a double? LOL well that's what I'm telling myself because on the odd occasion I have too many photos for a single layout, and I come up stumps for inspiration for a double, I'm going to do exactly this, create two single layouts which 'compliment' each other. Simples! LOL!!!!

I'd love to know what you think. Do you see two single layouts or a double? Oh and if you see a double, which would you put on the left or the right? Hmm??

In the meanwhile if you'd like to give these sketches a go you have until the end of June if you'd like to enter them in the challenges. Otherwise bookmark them for the future. Oh and I highly recommend you visit both of these stores if you haven't already. They rank in my top five favourite stores, for varied reasons, yet both equally inspiring and full of fun products!

Happy scrapping!!!   :)
