Given how busy things have got all of a sudden this week (how on earth do birthdays come around so quickly from one year to the next?) I asked to be excused from this weeks' dare. But as I was tidying up my craft room I came across the fabric placemat from IKEA - it was made for scrapping really I think!
So I grabbed my scissors, found out some felt pieces I had die cut for another project and never got around to doing and whipped up a super quick page. Done and dusted in under an hour and a half, including searching my hard drive for some photos, giving them a bit of a touch up and printing them out! That is really quick for me. And you know, not spending countless hours coming back and wondering what to put where (my usual method of scrapping) was really fun and liberating!

The pages everyone has done this week are all amazing, there are some great, fun and easy ideas for getting more texture on the page. I hope you find this week's dare as inspiring as I did and don't forget to add a link in the blog comments so we can come and have a nosey at what you have done yourself!
