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.

Sprinkles and Smiles - Prima BAP September / Scrap Around the World September Challenge

Hello Everyone

Thursday was a Public Holiday and then I had yesterday off too, so it has been really nice to wind down a little and just spend time with my son and spend time doing things around the house.

I did, however, finish a page for the Prima BAP and the Scrap Around the World Mood Board.


I loved the sentiment of the mood board and the beautiful colours, so that was the inspiration for my page.

Those of you that follow my blog might also have noticed that I have not been as active blog wise, as I was before and I think the sentiment of this mood board has a lot to do with that.  I have felt the need to balance more of my time, so that more is spent with the family and with my home, rather than sitting behind the PC. So when I do actually sit down in my craft room, it is to create, rather than do the PC thing! :-)

Anyways, so here is the page I made.

It's been a while since I created a page about myself...and this photo was taken quite a few years back.  It was actually taken at our engagement party...seems like a life time ago! ;-)

I used the gorgeous Garden Fable Collection and did loads and loads of fussy cutting.  For the background I used a super Prima stencil, some gesso and some yummy Colour Bloom Tea Stain and lots of stamps.

Sometimes I miss those carefree days but then again, what would life be without a husband, kids, animals and all the joy that they bring!! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit!
Have a super, scrappy, Saturday!

  3. I had noticed! And good on you for getting a bit of balance going...hope you really enjoyed your 'long' weekend! I do love this one....the photo is gorgeous.....and I reckon Life is all about Seasons....and this is your Busy with Others Season! I'm into the Just us Two [mostly] season & Not having to work [Much!] season.....& it is GOOD!!! But of course, it won't last forever. Nothing does. So I guess it's all about appreciating what it IS about those seasons, eh? Anyways, philosophical clap trap is FINISHED now.....see what your LO did to me??!!!!! Oh, love the design , too:):)

  8. Oh my goodness, Denise! What a gorgeous photo of you! I love how you scrapped it using this sketch and mood board! Your page is wonderful, creative, and just perfect. I know it is hard to balance blog time with family, and family always comes first! Hugs to you, my friend! I hope everything is OK with you!!

  9. Fabulous layout! Love that gorgeous masking job and all those layers!!! All the best from SATW! :)

  10. Stunning page my friend. I also opt to live life in the flesh rather than online xx

  11. Beautiful Denise! Thank you for playing at SATW!! As long as you blog at least once a week I find that people still remember you & visit & it gives you much more of a life!! Blogging & commenting too actively is a time sucker that never ends. Get onto Instagram :) Much quicker & easier to maintain! Although it's difficult to accept fewer comments at first it's best for yourself & your family if you blog what you have to & just return comments when your other responsibilities are out of the way first. My 2 cents!!

  12. Love love loved this when I saw it over at SATW. Love all the little fussy cut elements & I know what you mean about balance. I soooo have to get that one right !!!! Still working on it. :)
