Why thank you lovely readers!

What a lovely happy email I had last week. The lovely Chantalle has passed on the Liebster Award to me, which is a bit spesh... and then another from the (also lovely) Dot! Thanks so much girls... it's nice to know people like my little blog. :)

The Liebster Award is kind of like a pass-it-on blog hopping encouragement thing* to give a shout out to other blogs that you love, and help your readers discover new blogs and new inspiration!

I've chosen all these lovely ladies because they all have a very distinctive scrappy style and a definite personality to their layouts. I love it when you can look at a page not knowing whose it is, but be 99% sure it was created by a particular person because of their strong style.  :)

So in no particular order, prepare to discover new awesomeness...

Lisa Oxley
Love this girl - if there was ever anyone who totally embodies 'zest for life' it's Lisa! xo

Sarah Martin
I met this lovely lady at  Lou Nelson's class last year and I love her splattery-painty-mixed media style!
Kim Price 
Kim you are the queen of perfect watercolour backgrounds! And your layout photography skills are awesome  :)

Anne Patterson
Love Anne's work and her patience and attention to detail, and all that amazing stitching!!

Ashli Oliver
I pretty much credit Ashli as the one who inspired a turning point in my scrap style. You can pretty much look at any of my blog posts prior to about September 2012 and see the difference. There is pre-September shittiness and then post-September confidence - I finally found my own style and stopped trying to achieve the kind of results other scrappers could get but I could never quite manage. (You know - straight lines - shabby prettiness - sparkly girly blingy stuff - I admire these things but they're just not me!). So thank you Ashli for helping me find my mojo!  xo

*The idea is that it's awarded to blogs that have fewer than 200 followers to encourage new visitors. Once you've been nominated, you award it to 5 other bloggers who you appreciate, that have fewer than 200 followers. Leave them a comment on their blogs to let them know that you have given them this award.
**Technically Ashli has more than 200 followers. I don't care, she's on my list anyway because she is amaze-balls. 


  1. Thank you so much Leonie, this was such a lovely surprise and I am absolutely over the moon that you have passed this on to me. <3

  3. Wow Leonie thank you so much for giving me the award. It was so wonderful to meet you at Lou's class last year. To see you scrap was awesome, very inspiring x
