Hello, today I am joining in with the Pass the Page 2015 blog hop.
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of joining with 15 lovely ladies, and a seriously gorgeous baby, for our annual scrapbooking/crafting weekend away. As a part of the weekend, we all take part in a scrapbooking activity known as Pass the Page.
The idea is that the first person creates a beautiful layout and sends it to the second person on the list of people taking part. The second person then scraplifts that layout and creates a page which she sends on to the third person and so on until the final person gets their page completed. At the weekend, all the layouts are laid out in order and we all get to see all those lovely pages we haven't seen.
The fun part is seeing what people pick out from the layouts and how much they are similar or different.
In order to get the full effect of the pages, you need to firstly go to Julie's blog where the whole process began.
This year I received my page from the lovely Jackie.
And here is my take on that layout..........................
I loved the paper Jackie used with the bunting decoration and I knew I had a paper covered in pink bunting so I used that as my main background paper. I cut small strips off the edges and matted it onto a grey cardstock.
I knew I wanted to use this picture of my paretns, and to keep some of the yellow from Jackie's original, I matted the picture on a light lemon background paper, but left only a thin edging.
I loved Jackie's arrows, so I scraplifted those to point to my photograph, then added embellishments and journalling.
I then sent my page to Mrs Wookie so do hop on over to see what she made of my page.
If you get lost on this hop then here is the full list of hoppers in the correct order...............
