Just going with the flow.

Hi folks. Jen G here again. I'm going to be up to my eyes in electricians and decorators for the rest of the month so I'm squeezing in an early post now.
Just before all of the lovely new CHA releases arrived I ordered a Fancy Pants collection pack of the "Hopscotch" range. It was a range I hadn't really paid attention to before, but I'm glad I spotted it as I found it quite easy to use. I had no plans when I started putting any of these pages together, I just "went with the flow". I like to scrap quickly and simply - so I did. Along with the Fancy Pants papers I used some Simple Stories "Snap" stickers and Bakers Twine on each page.

For the first page I had two 6x4 photos that I wanted to scrap on one page together. Being an A4 scrapper that didn't leave much room for anything else! I trimmed the photo on the left slightly then embellished straight onto it with the word stickers from the "Hopscotch" pack as well as some from the "Snap" range. By positioning the raised circles and the main title at triangular points with those word stickers, my eye is drawn to that cheeky smile of Josh's - a good thing to be drawn to in my honest (totally unbiased) opinion.

On this second page I only had a small 4x4ish Instagram photo to use. I decided to cut the photo into 3 sections then I mimicked that in the strips of patterned paper. Those thin lines of the yellow paper intersecting the photo help to keep the focus on yet another gorgeous boy (see I'm still unbiased.) James himself asked me to use the title "so cool".

The third page is quite girly for me, but since I am on the photo I can be forgiven for the pink and the flowers. Yet again I have kept it simple, but those papers are so pretty I wanted to let them be seen. The "live, laugh, love" banner came in the "Hopscotch" collection pack - it fits this page perfectly.
I hope you like the pages I've shared today. Don't forget to leave us links to your latest work in the comments section or on our Facebook page.
