When I Was...

Not only is the April scraplift challenge about to go up over at the True XOXO Girls blog, the blog has also had a facelift and will soon be featuring posts from us Lipstick Chicks throughout the month to further inspire you.

My page for scraplifting this month is made - finally - from a kit supplied by the lovely Sandra at GottaCraft. The photo is from a couple of years ago, when I was interviewed by the BBC for an event I'd organised. My mum, of course, scrapped the photo straight away, but I kept it, not knowing how to. Then 'For the Record' came out, and suddeny it all made sense. I put the two together, and this is what I got:

I've included lots of close-ups, because I love this collection so much, and to show you how it has inspired me...

The gorgeous reds, yellows and greens are offset so strikingly by the black and white. I paired this with bakers' twine, painted flowers, a doily and a transparency.

I can't get enough of this collection. It's  a good thing, then, that there's still quite a lot of it left in my scraproom!

If you play along at True XOXO Girls, you are in with a chance of winning a yummy kit, as always, so get on over and get lifting! 


  1. "For The Record" seems so completely appropriate for this page - I love that! (and the page itself which has so many details I admire about your style. That little banner for example). Wonderful stuff!

  3. That is a gorgeous page, I love that kit too :)

  4. This is awesome!! Love all the layers and elements you used on this LO!!

  5. I really wish I had that collection, I just love it. Your page is fantastic, I love all the details and how you group items together. Did you paint the flower yourself. I really love it.

  6. Love it :) That is one of the collections I've been *trying* to get my hands on for the same reason! It seems so versatile!
