Oh!! I scrapped!

Good morning! I hope you are well and enjoying your day where ever you are around the world. Are you having a great weekend? 

Well... I promised to share my scrap layout... and here it is! It is for Magnolia Down Under Challenges new challenge which is up this morning - Stitching and Swirls.   Why a scrap page you ask? Well... my gorgeous Magnolia Teamie Ying, shared a layout she put together last week and I was inspired! She encouraged me to have a go so here it is... I have managed to use a few different Magnolia stamps on my layout... see if you can spot them all... I'll list the details on my Maggie only blog if you want to know which collections they are from.


The year Jeroen and I were married we were lucky enough to go to Europe for a few weeks. One of the amazing places we visited while we were there was of course beautiful Paris. I have been meaning to do some layouts of our travels, wedding and our beautiful boys for a couple of years now but I never got around to it. So Ying, thank you so much for the encouragement, this is the first page of what is going to be a very full scrapbook!

I have possibly gone right over the top with my page, lol. I have so many gorgeous bits and pieces that I haven't used on cards because I'd been 'saving' them... so of course I put them all on the one page haha.

This beautiful crochet flower is made by one of my lovely blogging friends in Holland, Ingrid. Thanks Ing, I told you I'd put them to good use :) I am so pleased to have a little piece from Holland on my layout. Jeroen was born in Holland and we spent most of our holiday there so it was a must have :)

This gorgeous Prima pearl flourish was a pressie from another of my blogging besties, Karen.


The pink gingham yoyo is also from Karen for my birthday last year and the Prima flower is from the very gorgeous and talented Debbie P for my birthday this year. The crochet lace you can see peeking out under the flowers I've saved from a pressie from two gorgeous ladies, Jackie and Kylie aka "The Other One", lol.  I'm very spoilt and I have the most wonderful friends.


The papers are all Girls Paperie. The little wooden bits and pieces are Kaisercraft and the sparkly hearts are Melissa Francis.

I would love to enter my layout in The Shabby Tea Room challenge #67 - "Classic patterns" - use pink and green with either polka dots or gingham - I've managed to use both patterns on my papers.

Thanks for checking out my scrapping. I know I have a bit to learn (like when enough is enough, lol) but I thoroughly enjoyed creating a page. Expect to see more!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend my friends,
Hugs xx

    It´s the first time I´ve had the honor of walking in to your blog, and I´m amazed. You have made some incredible things! The colors you put together is just amazing. All the details are so carefully placed and it looks amazing together.

    I was wondering about one thing. Im from Norway and I´m moving to Australia in just to weeks. Which online shops are good and is there any scrappingsstore I have to see? I´m moving to Queensland! :) Thanks if you have time to answer.
