So anyways, moving on, I ran the concept past the editor at Scrapbooking Memories magazine (at that time, Vanessa) to see if she might like to use the idea for a feature and she loved it! So I created this layout, provided Vanessa with a materials list and step by step instructions which she then sent to the fabulously talented Belinda Spencer. Once Belinda had created her layout we got to see what each other had done. I've got to tell you, my instructions turned out to be pretty good as Belinda totally got the design of the layout but at the same time, her colour palette and mixed media really made our layouts stand out from each other. The same but different.

One of the things I particularly like about this layout is that I've got four photos on it. That's important to me when scrapping travel photos. Oh and isn't that Scrap FX chipboard pelican on the pier post just sensational? I coloured it with Wink of Stella pens and have to say I was mega impressed with the coverage of the white on the pelican.
Anyways, if you are interested in recreating my 'pelicans layout' you can find the materials list and step by step instructions, together with a copy of Belinda's layout in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 18 No 3.
