Pass The Page Blog Hop, Bloggers' Weekend 2015

I was lucky enough to be invited to join a group of other bloggers and papercrafters for a weekend away, to meet up, chat, eat cake (of course!) and craft together.  

We went to the RAU at Cirencester and had a lovely big room to ourselves, for the whole weekend. Before we went, Julie of "JSquared" blog issued a challenge for a Pass The Page.  She sent someone a photo of a scrap page she had made, so that they could create their own page, using hers as inspiration.  That new page was then sent on to the next person in the chain, who did the same - and so on.  It's like a paper version of Chinese Whispers!  


I received a photo from Alison, of "Life in the Slow Lane" - I was number nine in a chain of eleven people.  Below you'll see the page I created, using Alison's lovely layout as inspiration.  


Photo by Keri-Anne Pink of Gingerlillytea Photography.  

The two little girls are my great nieces, on their summer holiday by the sea in Cornwall.  I loved the sunset colours, which inspired my choice of this orange ombre-style paper for the background. 



I passed my page on to Ruth. If you'd like to see what everyone made and follow the whole chain and its progress, go back to Julie's blog and follow the links all the way through!

  1. I was so busy looking at the page interpretations that I completely missed what a gorgeous photo this is. Lovely to see you scrapping Lizzie.

    1. Hello Kathy, nice to "see" you again!
      The photo is what gives the vintagey feel, I think, with the little girks in traditionally styled clothes, in such a timeless setting. Glad you like the colours - I love golden yellows, warm oranges and fresh greens!

  6. Your page is sooo restful Lizzie - and the butterfly has made a comeback!

    1. Yes, Jemma, that butterfly in the top corner - what a co-incidence!
      Glad you enjoyed the page I made. It was very relaxing to create it, so maybe it kind of worked its way into the page.

  8. Hi Lizzie! And so intriguing to see your page and have time to compare it to the previous one - you kept the stripy borders and the lines of journalling strips, along with the single photo, and I am tickled that the butterfly - which has been in at the very start and then got lost - has reappeared here!

    1. Accidental butterfly... It would make a good story title!

    1. Hi Sian! That's a lovely idea. Maybe we should do some more "Pass the Page" challenges from time to time. I did enjoy it and you're right that it encouraged me to both scrap and to blog about a page, for the first time in ages.

  11. Lovely page! I love your title, did you doodle that? I've enjoyed following the Pass the Page, and seeing how the ideas develop! Your weekend sounds like lots of fun. Popping in from Alexa's blog as part of my 300 in 30 blog commenting challenge

    1. Hello Linda, thanks for visiting. Sorry it's taken a while to respond - Life, you know...
      I didn't doodle the page title - it's actually a rub-on that I've had for a while. It just seemed the right thing for that page and it really does work well!
