Get It Scrapped CT Blog Hop

 
Welcome to the Get It Scrapped creative team blog hop!  Each member of the team has chosen one of their favorite articles from the Get It Scrapped site and created a layout inspired by that article.
 
I'm a big fan of multi-photo layouts and blocked designs, but I also like having pages that are a little different so everything isn't just the same arrangement or style (no one wants boring scrapbook pages, right?)  That's why I chose this article as my inspiration:

Here's my page incorporating some of the techniques from the article:

Oh wow, I love your take on this. I'm usually all about symmetry, but I like how the uneven blocks on your page still come together into a cohesive design :D

Delighted to be serving with you for this coming year, love the layout and the edging of dark pink. I adore blocked designs and should use more of them.

This is a very sweet page Brenda. I love the design of your layout and the photos are too cute. Loving the washi tape too.

There's always comfort in a good blocked layout, isn't there - always leaves me with a satisfied solid feeling about the page. I'm looking forward to being on the team with you this year.
