Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop - Free Choice...


Good afternoon and welcome to the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop.

This is the first scrapbook hop for this year and I am joining demonstrators from around the World with a Free Choice theme this month.

I must admit Free Choice is hard, where do you start?  If I have a theme or colours/sketch etc then I run with it and see what happens, when I have a free choice my mind goes into overdrive and I have way too many ideas running around my head!!!  So I resorted to good old Pinterest to find a sketch to get me on my way and this is what I came up with.

Hydrangea Hill

I absolutely adore the new Hydrangea Hill suite, one of my favourite flowers.  I do however struggle with purples in crafting, I have no idea why it is just a colour I avoid for some reason!

So my base is more Seaside Spray with purple accents.

Hydrangea Hill

I had to include my gorgeous late mum in my page, I love this photo of her taken when I think she was around 21.

Hydrangea Hill

I also mixed in a bit of the In Good Taste DSP which is a firm favourite and so versatile.

I hope you like my page, Rebecca-Jo is up next who I am sure will have something beautiful to share with us today.

Happy Scrappin'
