I wasn't sure when I saw Shimelle's sketch this week - it's a lovely simple layout, but I wondered if this simplicity would make it hard to create my own original interpretation. Yes, these are the things that keep me awake at night. Forget the recession and banking crisis it is scrapping dilemmas that get me worked up!

Anyway, after staring at her layout for an age, I finally had inspiration :)

Shimelle's Sketch and her layout

I felt that the placement of the orange paper on her layout reminded me of a pinwheel/windmill. Once I had this I was off! I know it's cheating a little to get my inspiration from her layout, rather than from the sketch itself. But hey, the scrapping police might just let me off with a caution this time...

So, here we are...

Am I allowed use the Americanism of 'bangs' instead of fringe? Sounds a lot better for my title!
