#162 - inspired by being pampered

For challenge WM#162, Lynnette asked us to be inspired by being pampered which was in turn prompted by hosting a spa party for her gorgeous 8 year old daughter and for pampering herself with a manicure. Sounds great, doesn't it? I think I need one of those parties for myself.

I thought about it for a few days and then realised that just being in my own room, pottering about at my scrap table, surrounded by all my gorgeous scrap stash and happy memories, while listening to music or podcasts relaxes me so much that it could be considered spa time! I used the Scrapabilly April kit featuring the Happy Day collection by Pebbles for a simple, feel-good layout.

I messed up the journalling a little and think the title might need a tiny bit more of a sub-title so those details might be tidied up but I wanted to post it while I had the photos at hand. If/when I change the layout, I'll just change out the photos here.

I've scrapped about my room and space before but this little aspect of my time standing there, creating has maybe not been so explicitly stated. That's what I love about the challenges here at Whimsical Musings. They get you thinking in all sorts of different directions and help fill in those little snippets of my life. Thanks Lynnette for a great challenge :-)

We love to see how you interpret these prompts and there are already a couple of pampering layouts in our Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery so why not join us and share what you make with the tag WM#162.


  1. I agree that prompts can always help us pull more stories from our photos, even if we've scrapped them before. It's nice to think that we won't run out of things to scrap right? Such pretty colors on your layout and I just adore that sweet banner! I listen to podcasts too while I scrap. It makes it seem like someone is there scrapping along with me. Thanks for sharing a glimpse of your space!

  2. Love the happy bright floral & the pops of blue. I have been missing blue with all of the teal/aqua tones of late. How right you are that your happy scrappy place is a special treat every time you get to settle in for awhile & create!
