Geometric Shapes for our Scrapbooking Blog Hop!!

Hello and Welcome to our amazing Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - the people in this group are so extraordinarily talented!!  

This month, the theme for our pages is Geometric Shapes and presented by Mai - who's projects are always amazing.  

To be honest, I really really struggled with this theme - I'm just not a structured geometrical scrapper!! 

The way I dug myself out of the creative slump, was to create a 2 inch grid on my white 12 by 12 inch using my Simply Scored scoring tool and then created a checker board using the black design of the glimmer & metallic paper.  The photos worked well for the geometric theme as they are from a photo booth and they allowed me to line them up perfectly.  

And then, after I made my checker board, I then just HAD to add some flowers to soften all those geometric shapes!! And I HAD to use my new supplies of the Fitting Florets bundle - these are coming very soon for you!!  I coloured the flowers using Stampin' Blends in Shaded Spruce, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.

I created the title using the Alphabest Bundle of stamp set and punch and I think it looks pretty geometrical!!  

All of the journalling pieces were cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies which looked lovely atop the metallic paper!  

So, I think I've fulfilled the geometric shapes brief!!  After all my angst, this page actually fell together quite easily.  

I hope you'll keep hopping around everyone to see lots of brilliant inspiration!!
