My First Time!

Good morning!

A few weekends ago I packed up my kit bags, loaded the car and headed down to Gloucestershire for my first time on the Bloggers' Weekend Retreat organised by my friend and fellow Master Forger Jemma.

Another first for me was a little pre-retreat Pass the Page scrapping organised by Julie

Thank you Julie for your explanation as, although I had heard of Pass the Page before, I had never taken part so for the benefit of those in the same boat as me, the idea is that the first scrapper creates a layout and sends a photo of said layout to the next person on the list who then takes inspiration/scraplifts to create their own layout before sending a photo to the next person and so on.

At the retreat, the layout were laid out in sequence and it was quite intriguing to see which parts stayed, which parts skipped a layout or two (how did we do that?) and which parts just never made it!

If you want to see how the first layout by Julie morphed into the last layout by Jo then you may want to follow the running order by starting with the creator, Julie.

Here is my layout which followed on from Claudia's. I used my Cameo to create the circle cutout and printed my journalling before I started (we all know how much I hate my handwriting!)

So there we have it, isn't it amazing how we all interpret things differently.

It always intrigues me and I'll never know the answer!!!


  1. It was lovely to meet you Lesley, and I'm really looking forward to next year! I've really enjoyed seeing again how the layouts changed (yet kept so many original elements) xx

  2. I really was inspired by seeing how you used your Silhouette and came home determined to sort mine out so I could too. That circular journalling is such a nice touch too.

  3. It was great to meet you at the weekend....and love your take on the page.

  4. Very cool layout. And I envy your getting to scrap with that great group.

  5. Your pages are always an inspiration - SO happy that you were able to join in with us all!

  6. Perfect inspiration :) and what attention to detail! I admire and congratulate.



Thank you so much for leaving me some love!
