How Much is Too Much?

I have been checking this blog out for a little while but hadn't had a chance to play along until now. I don't usually get to scrap pages about myself, mostly because I always forget to have photo's taken of myself. I found this one which was taken whilst watching my son play football, its not exactly the best photo, but I suppose it is me most days.

The Challenge was to scrap about YOURSELF, specifically, journal about your name--do you like it, hate it, have nicknames, etc.? Anything about your name is fair game!

Write down the letters in your name, and use items on your page that begin with each of those letters (could be the generic name of the thing or a brand). Use: 3 - three-word title 28 - items (at least)

So here's hoping I did this correct.

F - Flowers kaiser & Websters cutouts, Fancy Pants patterned paper & Rubons, Flourish chipboard, Fancy Pants covered chipboard banner, Fairy's
I - Ink around the edges of flourish, cutouts and journalling
O - Once Upon a Time papers by Graphic 45, Origins patterned paper by Basic Grey
N - Neighbour Hood banner sticker by Crate paper
A - Acetate

3 Word Title - Fiona or Fi?

I am pretty sure I have used 28 items on my page. I have also used one of the Sketch's from Pencilines this month.

Thanks for looking.

Pin It!


  1. This is a fun idea, FI!
    Actually I sometimes wondered about your name , if it was actually Fi or sth else...Now I know! LOL!
    I can't believe you have so many items crammed into this page and it looks SO good!
    You are amazing!Those cut out blooms look adorable.I have to check out HMTM !

  2. Love love love how you have stitched around the edges in that squiggly way (was that due to copious amounts of alcohol? or are you really that clever! LOL). All those fairies are so sweet and I like how your banner trails across the page great detailing work too
    Overall another fabbie Fi creation. Tx

  3. Fi it is Fab!
    The color combo is beautiful.
    Great page!

  4. What a spectacular page, Fi! Wow! Just amazing. Love the design. So cool how you used that BasicGrey die-cut and integrated it with the whole design. Love how you mixed that whimsical banner sticker with the cut-out triangles. So many gorgeous details--those flowers, the fairies. Just exquisite. And I love that photo--you are a beauty. Loved reading your story, too. Thanks so much for playing with us at HMITM!
