The layout above is from my very dear friend Mary, from Australia. It is so lovely that we can stay in touch and share scrapbooking layouts over the internet! Miss you! x

The layout above is from Hinke, my previous 'boss' from Dare to Use Color. And the layout below is from Gwendolyn. She is a new Creative Team member at Scrappassion and I cannot wait to meet her in real life in a few weeks time!

I'm a 14-year-old-girl from Finland, and I love to scrapbook, make cards and other crafts. I was reading my friend Elina's blog and saw her entry for your challenge, and I wanted to participate too! So here's my layout, hope you like it! :)

I just love receiving emails from people all over the world. Ciili has her own blog too, you can visit her blog HERE.

A layout from Maja ...

About a week ago I mentioned i hadn't received many Dutch entries this month. Clearly I had spoken too soon, because I have received six Dutch layouts in the last week! This is another one, made by Maja:

An entry from Finland!

For the first time since I started this blog I received an entry from Finland. Elina sent me the following email:

Hi Ingeborg,

Thanks for the great July challenge! I posted my entry in my blog HERE. Title of the page is 'Muru' which is Finnish and means 'Sweetheart'. This is what I wrote about the page in my blog:

I'm getting more and more addicted to PageMaps lovely lay outs and decided to make a page for a PageMaps challenge. This is a page made for Ingeborg's Scrapbooking Competition I'm participating for the first time! The beautiful papers are from My Mind's Eye 'So Sophie' collection. Don't you just love these colors! The swirl on the bottom of the page is made from paper yarn and the title ('Muru' - Sweetheart) is cut with Slice (International Travel card).

"During our hot and sunny summer journey we met the lovely Moomins and went swimming several times each day. How nice it was to stay a few nights in a hotel, eat cookies for supper, drink juice from a juice box and jump on the big hotel bed with your sister. What a great summer trip!"

Best regards and greetings from the sunny Finland!

Thanks for participating, Elina! I hope you come back for more visits and competitions many times!
