Same, Same but different

You hear this constantly in SE Asia, when one stall holder is trying to convince you to buy from her instead of the identical stall next door.

My same, same is the same photo - two Lo's, two challenge sites but essentially the same challenge.

Black and white with one colour.

The photo is one I borrowed off facebook, with permission, form Meaghan of her and two of her closest friends. (on a side note, one of my LO's of her and her friend has been accepted for publication and they are so excited and keep asking when it will be out - they have a fair wait - not until Nov..)

The first interpretation is a paper LO, for Scrap the Girls -


Still not confident of my paper scrapping LO's yet - lacks something... (and let's face it, pink and flowers are not my strong points!)

And then next is my digi Lo for Lasting Memories - ok, I really like this Lo-

Isn't that the best photo as well, they are beautiful girls.

There is an interesting post on Sahlin Studio's site by the very talented Emma Stafrace about digi and paper Lo's, she has done near identical Lo's, one digi , one paper and you cannot tell which is which - pretty cool. (go check out her blog, Just a Girl with Ideas for one of the best digi freebies i have seen, am looking forward to playing with this lot, thanks Lizzy for putting me onto her).

Onto boring news, more delays and our old house is freezing us out, downstairs refuses to warm up, our heating bill is going to be hideously expensive. Geoff is working from home and has taken to wearing a beanie all day - I had to resort to cooking in my puffer vest last night as the heating was  accidentally turned off and forgot about until way too late in the day - Looking forward to double glazing instead of great big gaps between door frames and outside.

Please let spring come soon...

I'm glad you 'found' Em-- her stuff is 'cool as'..bit like your house by the sound of it....you'll sure appreciate having a warm space...one day! I LOVE your digi, too....I think [& this is purely subjective, so toss the idea away if you wish] you need some doodling or stitching on the paper LO...maybe???? I reckon you could doodle. I can't! And CONGRATS on being published - the girls will LOVE being 'stars':):):):)
And I'm in need of some nice gentlemen with cute jumpers or cardi's on to make my long journey home by train bearable....!!!!!!!

Hi Karen can you believe I tried to link up on your Lo subbed for BITW but it told me your post was removed. Anyways decided I'd stay and have a looksie at your blog as I noticed your header had Sahlin Studio elements in it and wolah, here you are talking 'bout me tee hee! I am so glad you liked the free kit I would love to see what you do with it so exciting and am loving your digi page too all that Sahlin goodness tee hee!
