Here is an interesting comparison...I have been trawling the net finding different challenges to get my scrapping started. I found lots. One (which I missed the deadline for - doh!) was to scrap with the theme "Royal" to coincide with the Queen's diamond jubilee etc etc. I used the same pic of Alexa and decided to use up some older papers, and chuck a heap of flowers on it. One thing with getting kits is I end up with lots and lots of flowers, as they usually don't end up on many of my layouts!
Another challenge is the one over at Aussie Scrap Source for their Readers Challenge Design feature, this week on Contrast / Visual Hierarchy. They have a sketch from Page Maps to follow, and I used some of my fantastic prize win from Pink Paislee.
I will show you this layout first, as it is definitely more my style and without doubt my favourite:
And to compare:
