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.

Mom - Prima BAP October

Hello Everyone

I hope you are having a super Saturday.

I have been cooking a pot of curry for a family dinner later on and also just pottering, scrapping and a game of 2 of UNO in between, with Joe! ;-)

I loved the Prima BAP sketch again this is super.

2014 October BAP Jennifer

Here's my take on it, using the Delight Collection.

I loved this quilt type patterned paper in the collection and so definitely wanted to use it for my background.

I crackled and distressed the title.....along with the chipboard oval, which was then halved.

My Mom was 21 in this photo and she really was very beautiful! So my journalling above, tells you a little bit about her. My Mom has never really spoken about what her life was like, when she was young....she's just never been that open about it.  Maybe someday she will share some of it with me.

Thanks for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit!
Have a super, scrappy day!


  1. Gosh! Another all works so perfectly together, & you're right, that pp is something've made it sing:):) I hope ur mum talks about it before it's too late....I was chatting to a friend just the other day who is now the eldest in her family - & there is now no one left to ask about the family ---- she wished she had more info. It's simply too late for her! It was a sobering thought....but I digress. As usual!!!!

  2. So pretty Denise! The background looks terrific and the photo os lovely!
