Pass The Page: The Hop

Wow, it seems like quite a while since I spotted Julie at Letting the Days Roll By's post about playing Pass the Page! It's Chinese Whispers for scrapbookers - one page design passed along a chain of scrappers. The catch? You only get to see the page created by the scrapper immediately before you in the chain..

So, back last year, Julie sent out her design. And Julie's is the best place to start if you'd like to see how this one has progressed. It came to me from Lizzie of Lizzie Made and, after a lot of thinking, I turned it into this:


Then I passed it on to Clair at Obstinate Pursuit and that's where I'm headed right now. How has she changed it and made it her own? I'm looking forward to finding out...

and pssst! if you check out all the pages, leave a comment. There are prizes involved and you'll find out more as you go round..

Many thanks to Julie for organising Pass the Page - let's do it again sometime!

That is such a fab idea!!! I keep missing all these great things and then wish I had seen them earlier on my blog return. Sounds like soo much fun!

Fab layout Sian :)

Lizzie said...

Wow, another major overhaul, from one to the next! I wonder if we'll end up having gone all the way through the various layout possibilities, then coming back to a vertical strip, with 8 small photos on top!
Love the bright colours - esp. the yellow. Such an interesting subject, fun photo and, as ever a great story. It's fab, Sian!

Rhona said...

I love the wood effect paper you've used....it goes so perfectly with a book page.That looks such a wonderful place to sit and read.Until I read the journaling....I thought it was in your home.

I'm amazed by how much this LO is changing as it progresses....I can see the basis of my version starting to appear now!

I love how you've interpreted the previous LO to make yours, and its so colourful! :)

Emily said...

Awesome page!! Great interpretation!!

Lea said...

What a fun colorful layout and such great attention to detail. Love the little cloud above the title, the lace tucked under at the bottom and all the different journaling spots!

Margie said...

I love your papers, and stunning photo!

Kirsty.a said...

This is a great page inspired by another (completely different) great page. I'm really enjoying this Blog Hop

Twinkle Star said...

What a fun idea! I love the colours on the layout. I am off to check out the next page version x

Scrappi Sandi said...

Isn't it a great idea! I'm taking part in a 'Chinese Whispers' which started on Jan 1st & I can't wait to see what the next person 'lifts' from my LO!!! I think this LO is just gorgeous & perfectly balance with all that colour & the lovely beige bark PP...perfect!! :)

K said...

so different yet again! really enjoying this blog hop & seeing everyones interpretations

alexa said...

Such a glorious burst of colour, and a clever title for this delicious place - books and tea/coffee is just my idea of heaven on earth. That glorious background paper, the curled edge of the woodgrain, the happy-go-lucky lettering: makes me happy just to look at it. I want my house to look like this!

Jennifer said...

Such a fun idea! Your LO is lovely! :)

Jessie said...

Beautiful page and photo!

Nathalie said...

I LOVE your page Sian!!!! Love the bright colors, the patterns and the design! It is stunning! I am off to hop now!

Sandie said...

It's good to see you have made this page your own Sian. Love the wood grain paper again, and the lovely bright colours. I;d like to sit there with a book anytime!

Lisa-Jane said...

Ooh love that suffolk punch flower. I can't believe how it has changed from just a couple of "hops". This has been such great fun!

Jimjams said...

Another big transformation although the warmth and textures have carried over. Love the layering!

S said...

Oh it is so much fun to see the transformation by each scrapper - love your page!

Sandra said...

Great idea, and a gorgeous page, but oooohhhhh how I so want to visit that shop :)

Helen said...

I love , love the colours here - and how you calmed it with the lovely woodgrain. I have that background paper and now I can see how to use it! Beautiful :)

Amy said...

Great changes Sian - I can really see how you adapted the page to your style.

DebiJ said...

Just love how each page has such a personality of its own! Fabulous LO Sian, & love your colours & intensity, plus what a wonderful book nook...I want one too now!!
Thanks for hopping along together..xx

Ginger said...

Wow! this is just so much fun! Sian i love how you made this your own with the stitching and little bitty bits and the colours are so fresh and bright!! So completely different from mine - I am loving everyone's interpretation!

Karen said...

Love, love, love the colors and patterns in this layout! It's a bright spot in a dreary, gray, and rainy Oregon day!

Alana said...

Fab layout Sian. Love the colours and the woodgrain paper.

Denise said...

What a great idea,I've missed all the fun lately- am off to have a hop now!

Wanda said...

This seems like a fun project, but then you are always knee-deep in the very best stuff! I've checked out a few of the other pages, and it was quite the transformation from beginning to end.

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

I saw your page when I visited yesterday, but have only just had the chance to start the hop proper! It's amazing to see how much the design changes from one page to the next and I love your take on it. What a wonderful book nook. Like Jacky, I first thought it was in your home!

Beverly said...

Love your take on Lizzie's layout, great scrap inspiration :) The colors are great and the topic of choice is a wonderful one.

This has been a really fascinating process to watch!

Louise said...

Oh Sian, a wonderful page full of colour. Great photo and i love the title and stitching.

Missus Wookie said...

Ah - I do one of these every month and it is fascinating seeing where inspiration takes people. One of my favourite things to do - scrap with friends albeit remotely :lol: Got to scrap in person in November which was even more fun but the plane tickets do get expensive :)

Becky said...

Great page! I've been having a look at how all the pages are changing - fascintating!

Julie J said...

Thanks for joining in. I love all your bright colours and little touches and you seem to know the most wonderful places. And yes we must do it again sometime.
