You  may not believe me because it's quite a long time since I shared much here on my blog, but I have been busy scrapping recently - just not over here.

I've been keeping up with the Whimsical Musings challenges but forget to post over here so I just thought I'd do a catch up post.

WM#13 was a challenge to use a triadic colour combination. I decided on an aqua blue, a rich raspberry pink/ red and a creamy yellow. The aqua came out a bit greener than planned but the combination was so bright and fresh that I loved it.

WM#14 was to be inspired by or incorporate maps onto our layouts. I adore maps and atlases and this was a prompt I'd been thinking about for a long time. I adored identifying all the places I'd visited and marking them with a brad. Of course, Europe is much smaller on a world map than you think and not big enough to fit them all - but the general idea is there. I was inspired by a layout I'd seen by new scrapbook hero Rahel Menig.

WM#15 was to reflect on ourselves and think about what aspect we are grateful for. This was an interesting exercise and I was inspired by so many layouts I've seen on Pinterest recently. All layers and papers and stitching - a fun layout to make.

WM#16 was all about birthdays but of course to find a way to record it other than the usual. We had the most amazing November in history and I was thrilled to have blue skies and sunshine on my special day. I chose grey as a base for my layout to reflect what we usually expect for November days.

WM#17 was all about the fun. Take a photo and scrap it - just because. Again inspired by Pinterest, this layout was so much fun to make - all those paint splats and the twine swirly bits.

WM#18 was details of the season. I used a Christmas kit from two Christmases ago which felt good to use up. The paper hats was the one detail that kept coming to the surface and I'm so glad to have recorded this detail of my Christmas celebrations in Germany.

WM#19 was to grab the scraps from our last layout and get creating. Who could resist these pretty papers and embellishments along with that beautiful little face? This was 100% joy to make. Can you tell that the banner thing has taken over my scrappy life at the moment? ;-)

Pam and I would love to see you over at Whimsical Musings for our weekly challenges. No pressure, just creating with friends.


  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. You always inspire me and find the most amazing links, thank you.

  2. You've been more than a little bit busy, haven't you. Such pretty work - sigh! I will make time to get over to WM - soon, I promise.

  3. I loved the reminder of our past challenges. I love how we inspire each other. I love seeing your work. ;) I love you!

  4. Lovely catch up. I finally got around to joining your flickr group, and am pondering turning points x

  5. Another round of gorgeousness! I might steal that travel map layout idea - brilliant! Love the polaroid photo banner too!


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
