It seems that scraplifting is a love/hate thing. Some swear by it; and for others it's just not their cup of tea. I usually fall into the latter half, but I find that sketches and scraplifting are a great way to jump back into scrapping and get out of a rut.
It's also a great way to get a tone of pages done fast. To get myself back into the swing of things, I've been on one long scraplifting marathon. And you know what? I love these layouts because of the memories. I'm glad to have these recorded and am not wasting time worrying that I wasn't creative enough.

If you check out the originals, you'll see that I followed the inspiration layouts very closely. If I'm inspired by another layout, it's usually to try a technique or photo placement... not to all out scraplift it. This was an interesting change of pace for me. Just the jumpstart I needed!
What's your take on scraplifting? Love it or hate it?
