Club Scrap Woven Strands Blog Hop

Welcome to the Woven Strands Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Marya's Blog you are in the right place. If you have gotten lost you can return to the Club Scrap Blog and start from the beginning.
The past month has been quite busy at my house as we prepared for my daughter's "Sweet 16" party. I spent all of my free time crafting for the "under the sea" themed party. One of the things I did for her party was to print over 200 square prints of Catie over the past 16 years and then I hung them from a fishing net. (Keep your eyes out for the party post).
After the party I am left with all of these awesome pictures through the years so I decided to start scrapping them for the hop!
This first picture is of my brother with Catie and her cousins. I LOVE the artwork of the Woven Strands collection and did not want to cover it up.

The more time I spend scrapping the more I am able to accept that I like simple, clean layouts.
I added a few embellishments from my stash and some  pieces from my Woven Strands HPOP. It is so nice to have smaller pieces of the kit cardstock to use and not have to cut up the larger sheets.


My second layout is a great picture of Catie and her dad.
I used the embellishment cutaparts at the top and bottom of the layout.
Have I told you how much I LOVE this art work?

Thanks for stopping by today! Next head on over to Lisa's Blog!

Today we are remembering Lily Chilvers a truly beautiful artist and soul taken from us too soon.
To honour Lily we are sharing projects we have made in her memory using the wonderful, whimsical and wacky art she shared with us all.

Blog Hop List

I made this tag a while ago after my brother Richard died. He wasn't just my brother, he was my friend and losing him was devastating. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about him.

 But no matter how much I miss him, the reality is that time goes on and so must those of us left behind. That was the inspiration for this tag.

I used Lily's tree and grass stamps and to create the top of the tree I used the hair off of Steampunk Violet.

Lily was such a talented artist and a beautiful person. She will be greatly missed. But she will live on always in her Octopodes!

Thanks for stopping by. Please follow the links above to continue on the hop.
