Pass the Page Blog Hop.....it ends here

Welcome....welcome.....this is the last stop on Julie's 'Pass the Page' Blog Hop to celebrate her Blogversary.....it's a bit like chinese whispers for scrapbookers.....Julie's initial page has been scraplifted and changed as its come down the line......with every participant only seeing the page before their own........until you get to the final version on my post.....which I'm sure is very different from the first page.
This is the lovely page I received from Jo
and the first things that immediately caught my eye were the beautiful hexagons and the title......and my own title immediately sprung to mind........because I already had some photos I wanted to scrap........and 'A patchwork of people' was the perfect theme.......and I've probably never started a page with a title before.......usually that is one of the last things I decide on!!!
But in March I was lucky enough to attend two events with fellow bloggers......first a Bloggers Crafting Weekend [and most of those lovely ladies who attended are taking part in this Blog Hop]......and then a lunch in London to meet Deb [over from Arizona] with nine other bloggers.
It was that second event that I had the photos all ready to scrap.
Because my first thoughts on seeing Jo's title were just how like a patchwork quilt the blogging community is.......
bright,colourful interlocking pieces......that join together to make something warm, comforting,secure and creative.
If you haven't arrived here from Jo's lovely blog......do pop back to Julie to start the hop and see all the twists and turns as the page progresses......and don't forget to leave everyone a comment.....there's a prize from Julie involved!
Thanks so much for joining us today.

I have really enjoyed this hop and your page is stunning. A great way to remember a special day x

you seem to have captured that day so well in both pictures and sentiment. Wow how different is this from the original! The final page with 4 photos and a completely different look what a great blog hop! xxx

This is amazing! Lovely layout and I love your comparison with the theme of a patchwork of people.

Chidkid said...

That is SO apt.. that's how I feel about this great community of ours!

alexa said...

What a superb way to end, with sentiments like these! And it is really interesting just how your page links back to Mel's in the placing of the hexagon pattern, though you couldn't have known that at the time. I'm glad that your lovely day in London has found such great expression here ...

Sandie said...

What a perfect page! It really does end the hop beautifully with the focus on blog community and friendship. I love how you used the hexagons and Jo's title to recall happy memories of those encounters.

Jimjams said...

A perfect theme to end the hop with ... and how great to take inspiration from the hexagons in that way. A lovely cosy page!

JulieJ said...

It started with a group of crafting bloggers, meeting in Milton Keynes and getting together for a blog hop. and has ended with a page about a wider circle of like minded crafty bloggers getting together in London. What a lovely page to end on. Thanks for joining in the celebration.

I love how my page gave you a jumping point to your own, this is a beautiful layout. I agree with the sentiment of bloggers as patchwork too and I love how perfectly the page has come together,

A lovely page recapping how it all began...

Abi said...

A perfect page and what a great analogy for the blogging community.

Gail said...

I love how you've tied the hop all together by making your page about the patchwork quilt of blogging friendships.

humel said...

I love it, Jacky - it's a fab page, and it was a wonderful occasion. Just perfect for finishing up this blog hop! *happy sigh*... xx

Angelfish said...

What a great take on Jo's LO and the perfect subject :o) I will have to go back to the beginning when I have time to see how it all started. I began with Mel.

PurpleJet said...

Like your journalling about bloggers - what a lovely thought.

Missus Wookie said...

Oh now this is the perfect page and sentiment to end the hop. I like the white pen stitching around the hexagons and the fitting together of the photos. Isn't it interesting how sometimes one aspect of this creative process jumps and we end up doing something a completely different way around?

Sandra said...

I really love your take on jo's layout, it's great that you've made a patchwork quilt almost of friendship in this lovely, lovely layout

Karen said...

What a lovely page and it brought back such a happy day.

Ginger said...

Love it Jacky! I love the hexagons and that you journaled directly on the page.

Maria Ontiveros said...

Love what you did with the hexagons and title. Great color choice, too.
