Not My Style BUT...

...I do love how this heritage page has turned out.

I find it quite interesting to see how differently I and others can scrap sometimes.
As you know, my backgrounds are 98% always white with quite a modern feel so when Jen sent me some "French Country" papers from the Graphic 45 range I was very unsure whether I would actually be able to use them.

I had this copied photo of my Mum as a baby which I had wanted to scrap for a while but all my modern papers with their chevrons and bright colours just didn't do it.
Although I have used modern items on my page, the layout still has a heritage feel to it.

Do you use papers that you wouldn't normally use?
Do you stick to buying the same things over and over because you're not sure how you would use something different?
Maybe this is the time to use something different - go on, challenge yourself!!!


  1. Sometime I think it would be nice to have a "style" but I think I just scrap as to what I have at hand or how I'm feeling that day. But I think you're right to have gone this route with that photo :)

  2. Looks good to me! You Rose to the challenge! I love G45... You did us proud petal, jenx
