Pass the Page 2015 x

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...............

Mrs Wookie:


  1. Love how you interpreted my page,Jo......the black and white photo works brilliantly.

  2. Such a pretty page, loved the complete change in colour but still with lots of elements of Jackie's page.

  3. Smashing, love the colour change and bunting


  4. really pretty page and I love those gold alphas!

  5. It's great to see how different people take inspiration from another's page. Love the B&W photo against all the pink, brightened up by the gold & grey. Super page.

  6. Great use of the background paper, the whole thing is so pretty

  7. Cool to see what you picked up and reused. This was a fun page to lift as well :)

  8. You've really exploited the banner feature with your paper here, and subtly shifted the yellow to gold - very nice! The black and white photo looks great here, but wasn't followed through by others, I think - off to look! Lovely page ...

  9. Okay, I'll have to head back to see the beginning before I read any more out of order! But I just love seeing these progress. A lot of fun.

  10. Lovely page! I like the bunting paper, a nice prgression from Jacky's page. I am loving working my way through your Pass the Page! I bet you had a wonderful weekend!!

  11. I like how you've used the bunting from Jacky's page as your inspiration, changed the main colour but still have a bit of the yellow and grey in there. It's really interesting to see what everyone picks up on as their inspiration.
