Scrap Whispers #64 - Scrap your scrap

I LOVE this one! Last year at Scrap Whispers we had a challenge to snap and scrap our scrap rooms without tidying them up - now that was pretty scary. This year we're allowed to make our spaces respectable first, which was a relief! I found it very interesting to look back at last July's LO As Is and compare how I had everything in a different room in a different country.

And 10 months later...

As you can see, my stash has grown somewhat, despite my no-buy challenge. Ah well, a girl's gotta have a hobby, hasn't she? It keeps me off the streets as DH so delicately puts it.

I used a sketch this week, from the Inspired Blueprints site which I just discovered. I didn't have papers which matched or even complimented my photos of the scrap room in the strange, shaded light of an autumn afternoon, so I made my own by punching 60 little squares out of various scraps with my EK Success punch and gluing them down. The title was cut using my Silhouette using the same font as myspace ;-) the giant flower is Petaloo and the brads are from the Paper Studio.

I love that LO with the 60 square scraps. That just turned out so well! You are so very right when you say a girl has to have a hobby! :)

Love your post and made me think of my home having a different theme in each room e.g sitting room is egyptian bedroom oriental bathroom nautical. Your post has inspired me to do some scrapbooking pages. Thank you for sharing!

Happy crafting!
