Hi Crafters,

Welcome to another of my monthly Scrapbook blog hop posts. If you've just arrived from Shirley then I'm sure you're already feeling inspired. If you're starting here, then hello and I hope you enjoy your visit before hopping off to see what all the other Stampin Up! demonstrators have been up to.

It's not really a goodbye to scrapbooking, just to the current Stampin Up catalogue which ends this month. The new one has some great new products inside which I'm looking forward to using, but sometimes it's sad to say goodbye to old favourites, so this month I'm showcasing some of the paper I fell in love with over the last 12 months.

I was instantly attracted to the Best Route suite last year. I knew it would fit in perfectly for scrapbooking our travels.

This was a recent visit to Dorset in the UK. We love this area and as it was a glorious day, we opted for a coastal walk. Hadn't intended walking quite so far ... but it was a real achievement for me!

I used Best Route Memories & More cards; lots of punched circles (including ones punched from the retiring 1 1/4" circle punch); Dragonfly Dreams stamp set; Decorative Ribbon Border punch (which isn't retiring) and a small amount of Best Route DSP. I also did a small amount of printing on my laptop!

I hope I've given you some ideas for your future scrapbook pages.  I tend to forget my Memories & More cards, so wanted to concentrate on using those this time

Happy Crafting
