This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

40 - Sketch no.29 - Scrap Africa

Hello Everyone

I have enjoyed a lovely day at home, as we had another Public Holiday today and it was bliss! I did a little grocery shopping, visited my aunt and then had some scrappy time as hubby took Joe to go a watch his older brother play rugby! It has been me and the doggies, scrapping and chatting! ;-)

There's a new sketch up at Scrap Africa here. Juliana Michaels is our special guest designer and there is some wonderful inspiration from her and the DT up on the blog.  It would be super if you could pop over and take a look.

Here's my sketch and then my take on it! LOL

This is another page where I used my stash! I have a load of Kaisercraft papers that have been waiting for me and I finally used this collection. I was very happy with the result.

My sister turned 40 a while back and this was her at her birthday party.

I loved all the beautiful diecuts and they were so very pretty.  So I used quite a few and then added in a few Petaloo blooms.

It was a lovely celebration and one I really enjoyed!

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you will play along!
