12/07/16 - "Baby, It's Cold Outside"

The layout I am sharing today was inspired by a few challenges...
One of them was the "December Scraplift Your Favorites" Challenge.
For those that don't know what scrap lifting is, here is a definition:
Now that you're all educated, it's time to share some layouts!
 * * * * *
First,  the original...the inspiration... created by 'Scrapanda' :
"Happy Days"
Link to the layout and her gallery:
And now...  my version:
"Baby, It's Cold Outside"
Journaling: Hamlet, warm and cozy inside on a cold December Day"
"Friday, 12.02.16"

I think the parts I lifted are pretty obvious so I won't go into detail.
It's been a while since I participated in the (monthly) challenge, and lifting such a wonderful original reminded me how much fun it is.
It's a great way to create without thinking too much and sometimes it forces you to step out of your comfort-zone, but in a good way!
Do you scrap lift?
I'd love to know and if you have any examples of it I would love to see also.
You can include a link in your comment.
Just for FYI -
