Our February Guest ...

Please welcome our February guest designer,  Maria Jolly with her delightful take on our challenge this month.


Is it an activity, a hobby or an addiction?

Well for me it started about 12 years ago as a hobby to make an album for my daughters upcoming 21st and very quickly turned into an obsession.

I can no longer go into a shop like “The Warehouse” without “Checking Out” the craft section “Just in case” there may be something I NEED.

I can’t even go into the fishing shop with my Husband without eyeing up the tackle and imagining how I could use it on a page.

Scrapbooking has not only brought me a whole lot of satisfaction when the family bring their friends home and we sit all sit around laughing, looking through the albums, but I have gained the best bunch of Scrapping Sista’s along the way.

We have awesome weekends away at Scrapbooking Retreats and we have even booked a Scrapbooking Cruise for early next year.

Life feels contented.

I would say that MY STYLE is definitely Symmetrical.

I can’t bare anything to be off centre or angled or god forbid a miss matched colour.

But that is also why I enjoy Scrapbooking so much, because we are all so different and learn so much from each other.

It is a craft that will never die.

We are always taking Photographs and documenting our lives.

Never Give Up.

Congratulations on being the February guest designer! Your layouts are gorgeous. I love your blurb, I think so many of us are like that. For me I will always look in the craft and stationary section of every store just in case there is something on sale or clearance - after all these years it really is a way of life. Even my husband will say for me to go have a look in case something is on sale!
