Back from the dark!

Well hello! I hope you're all fine and dandy, and that your lives have been treating you well.

It's been (shhh) since I was last here, and far too much has gone on for me to fit it into a quick post. Suffice to say, I have a craft room now, and so am finally back to scrapbooking after almost two years off. Two! So I decided a really good start would be to join in with Shimelle's online scrapbook crop this weekend, and see if the mojo has left or has just been hiding under a rock, out of sight.

Here's the first challenge, to scraplift or take inspiration from a totally gorgeous layout by Jaime Warren. And here's my take on it. I don't usually use green and pink, which is probably why these journal cards from Prima have sat around for about 3 years. I am a definite convert though.

Doing this has really re-ignited my love for paper-scrapping, reminding me why I enjoy it so much. It's all the teeny tiny details, that you wouldn't notice at first glance. Like the fact that the teeny tiny leaves have been creased where the middle vein would be (and how that teeny heart above has actually moved down by an inch in the finished layout - shh).

And the way that you can link things in threes, like the hearts, and the three areas of embellishments. Oh, and the pretty pictures of course!

Let me know if you're joining in, though I'll probably find you through the links on Shimelle's posts, if you've shared there! Looking forward to seeing what you all have been up to...

Love all the embellishments on this, especially those scattered pearls.
