Another challenge from the Online Scrapbook Weekend. This one is called 'Starting Point Challenge'.  Sponsored by Basic Grey, Shimelle gave us the challenge to create a layout that starts from a set design. Use any papers or colours you like, but before you add any pictures, start with that large box of paper in the background, a wide vertical strip plus a narrow stripe and a horizontal block. Then complete a layout! You can use the page above as inspiration, but it’s not required. See where this starting point sends you!

So with my Basic Grey Wassail papers I started from here following the basic design:

Then added my photo and embellishments etc. and ended up here:

I used Wassail papers - spiced tea, noel, turtle doves and sleigh ride. Although these are from a Christmas collection there are plenty of patterned and plain papers that will work for other occasions.

A photo of Jessica at the wedding a few weeks age. I added pearls, gems, perfect pearls, lace, ribbon roses, BG Chipboard stickers, element stickers and alphas and American Craft alphabet stickers. I also used a journalling block stamp, Memento Tuxedo ink pad and Colorbox chalk inks.


  1. Awww, she's so sweet. Love her parasol. That Christmas paper is ideal for this LO. Who's to say it has to be kept until December? x

  2. Oh, my, this is gorgeous. The papers you used are perfect for this photo!

  3. Great LO, papers match the photo perfectly and certainly dont look christmassy (if there is such a word) at all.

  4. Lovely, really lovely..xxx
