Two of a Kind - themed challenges..

hi.. this last weekend was the challenge weekend for Scrap of Difference.. and the theme was TWO OF A KIND.. we have a sketch, a color and a technique challenge..using the theme to inspire the layouts..

 the layout called "a special bond' is about my daughter and her special friend Eloni who shared their lives together in Treasure House Childrens Home Fiji before they were both picked up by their family's on the same day in January 2003.. what a wonderful opportunity to get each others details and stay in touch for the sake of these two girls and the bond they have..we were able to re-unite in January 2010 and the girls were able to just get to know each other again.. so definitely a very special two of a kind..

i used lots of die cuts and layered them with foam tape for dimension..(now sorry for the gap...dunno why!!...still learning about these bloggy thingys!!)
scroll down please........

the color challenge was to use lime green and for this layout i used a photo of Hannah and her bestie Jess.. they have been close friends since grade 8 in 2004, so as teenagers they are two of a kind.. you know ... the teenager kind!!! i am lovin bows at the moment.. and used a soft gorgeous ribbon for the bow in the corner..

the technique was to do a double layout.. i don't usually do doubles.. so this was a good challenge..

this is of course of my two daughters.. two of the closest kind... sisters...(now for some reason i cant seem to put up the double, or get the two layouts  side by side.. but you can get the idea.. the pages are like a mirror image.. ) I will put one layout in each of my daughters albums.. and just a closeup of the flowers which include the new kaiser paper blooms and kaiser dress form..(which i LURVEEE!!) thanks for popping in today.. hope your day is going great!!
