Check this out!

The fabulous DT gals did something really fun and unusual this month!  We did progressive layouts!  What does that mean?  Well, it's a concept that Heidi Kelley and I (Alyssa) can up with nearly a year ago.  We were joking about a layout Heidi was stuck on, and she remarked that she should just send it to me to finish.  The idea stuck, and we completed out first progressive layout soon after.

The basic idea is that one person starts a layout, and sends it off.  Then the partner finishes it.  It's so much fun to see the end results!  Today, I want to show you a few of the layouts the girls created, and next week I will show you the rest.

The first one I have to share today was started by April and finished by LG. This is what April created:
And this is how LG finished it:

How totally cute and fun is that??  :)  April send LG a gorgeous framework, and LG's materful touches brought the whole thing together beautifully.  I love how LG choose to use two photos and how she worked with the gorgeous vine April chose.  The pair used a combination of BasicGrey, Jenni Bowlin, and Making Memories, available in the store!

Next up, Sue sent a layout to April to finish.  This is what Susan sent:
And this is how April finished it:
So many gorgeous details in this layout.  Sue chose a great color palette, and a clean design, and April added complimentary colors and completed the layout perfectly- in her unique style.  So beautiful!  These two ladies used October Afternoon, Hambly, Maya Road, and AC Thickers, all in the store!

Finally (for today), this is a layout started by LG and completed by Sue. This is what LG created:

And this is how Sue completed it!
Wow, so many stunning details in this layout.  I just love all the feminine touches and the layers that both Sue and LG masterfully created.

Next week I have 3 more progressive projects to show you!  What do you think?  Gonna give this a try at your next crop, or with a friend?  Be sure to post your layouts in our gallery and let us know how we inspired you.
