This Little Blog of Mine

Right-ho. What's it for then? Mainly for self-aggrandisement, egotism and arrogance. But I'm being modest...

I wanted a blog mainly because I saw that other scrapbookers had a blog and that meant that they could share their work with others, get feedback, comment and just generally get inspiration and ideas. And I wanted to get in on that. That simple.

More recently it's been a great place for me to write my journalling and pair it with pictures. Then when I'm ready to scrap: hey presto, it's all there, fresh and detailed and ready to go.

And y'know what? I LOVE to get comments, it makes me smile. And I LOVE stealing ideas from other people because of my self-aggrandising, egotistical and arrogant ways. Which sounds better if you call it inspiration ;D So I'm going to stick at the blogging lark and carry on with Shimelle's Class, Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers.

In the spirit of sharing, here is a sneak of my page for this week's Scrap Factor over at UKScrappers. The theme was a colour scheme of blue, pink and green. You can hop over there, see the entries and play along - fabcakes!

P.S. Washi tape is like masking tape only really, extremely, terrifically, very pretty with patterns on it. And if you're in the UK you'll be chuffed to discover it can be found in Paperchase! Certainly the big one on Tottenham Court Road has lots. I'll announce the giveaway winner tomorrow - thanks all for stopping by to play BlogHop. It was brilliant!

  7. Just because you said you love comments - I thought I'd leave one! I've meant to keep up with Scrap Factor but I've been busy been away and now I must hop over and take a look. You see I have a friend in your group and I hope she's still there...............but she did say I had to vote for the best page and not just hers!
