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.

Sketch no.58 - Scrap Africa

Hello Everyone

We have a new sketch up on the blog, for the new month, at Scrap Africa.

I had recently gone with 2 friends, sisters, to a ladies tea and we had the best time! We had such a laugh and it was just so very good for the soul! ;-) My friend took some photo's with her camera and so I wanted to scrap them.  The photo quality was not so great, but I scrapped them anyway.  I wanted to remember and document that morning.

I created a canvas.

I used Prima Garden Fable papers and accents, along with a Blue Fern chipboard .

I recycled a delicate scarf, that after much wear and washing, just started to fall apart.  So the white lace used is from that beautiful scarf.

These rose clusters from Prima were perfect for this design and page.

There had to be some fussy these pretty roses were perfect for that! ;-)

Maybe you can play along....we would love if it you could.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a super evening!

  1. What a happy canvas! Great idea of using the lace from the scarf. Reduce-reuse-recycle,,, how they say!!!!;);)

  2. Oh, you have done a stunning job on this page.....& I am so with you re: scrapping memories. So what if the photos aren't perfect, they still bring back those fabulous memories, which is the whole purpose, as far as I'm concerned! LOOOOVE that you've used an old scarf.....adore the round chippy behind it all.....just think you've done the BEST job here:))

  3. what a beautiful photos! no matter that quality isn't so good - it's a memory! and so great that you scrap it! ))) the soft colours you used here are absolutely wonderful!

  4. No matter about the less than perfect photos - it's all about the memories and you've displayed them so beautifully. Love the pink frames and the clustering. Gorgeous work.

  5. I love the effect the lace of the old scarf gives this canvas...and that photos don't have to be perfect to create a perfect memory. Stunning work.
