A great reason to scrap!

I swear, if it wasn't for the weekly challenges over at Scrapsidaisy, I wouldn't have scrapped for weeks.....

This week, it's Mel's turn to challenge us (and she now has her very own blog, too!) She's given us this picture for inspiration...

Now, I love bright, but I think this room's colours are a bit bright, even for my house :) For a scrapbook page though? Not a problem!

The colours instantly reminded me of Bo Bunny's Sunkissed range, but I don't have much of it punched squares from what I had, and added some American Crafts polkadots for good measure.

This flower centre is by Basic Grey, but used to be attached to a stalk :) I cut the white cardstock into the shape by first tracing around a diecut paper, then just echoing the shape for the other colours. Nothing too complex on this page, but it sure has motivated me to pull out some paper and create a little more...maybe on the weekend?
Happy Friday

I love the punched squares, it's a great idea for using up scraps.
