Blog - tember Day 6 - Top Trends

Afternoon all. As I said in yesterday's post I shared earlier this morning I would be back with todays prompt.

So todays prompt was Favourite fashion trends, but instead I am going to share my favourite trends in the Scrapbooking world lately or some of the trends I avoid.
September 6th - Too Scrapbooking Trends 

The first one I can think of is Paper Doilies, I have seen many layouts with them. They even come is colours, polka dots and just plain white, which I like.

If you want to check out some gorgeous Layouts using paper doilies check out these creative ladies blogs to see their layouts.

Raquel Bowman - Blog

Michelle Stokes - Facebook Page

I have to say Raquel and Michelle inspire me a lot. I love the way there layouts turn out.

Layering under your photo in traditional pages has became a big thing. I know myself and Adele Toomey (Inkie Quill) love to use the basic and cheap Tissue Paper to add both texture and to build up the layers with scrapbook paper.

One of the huge trends right now is Gold Foil. I think nearly every new Scrapbooking collection has some sort of  foil, you can now even foil yourself with the Heidi Swapp Minc. 

Let me know in the comments below what your favourite Scrapbooking trends are at the moment.

Blog - tember Day 5 - Top 10 Songs

Hey blog readers. Yesterday's post is a bit late but petter late then never right??

So I am going to twerk the prompt from yesterday from putting my iTunes on shuffle and say the first top 10 songs that play to my favourite top 10 song at the moment. 

So let's start this off with number 1:

September 5th - Top 10 Songs

#1 - Troye Sivan - Wild

Now thanks to my friends I am now a fan of Troyes's songs. I even found a song that I did know that he sung that I like. 

#2 - Walk The Moon - Shut Up & Dance

I don't know why I love this song but I just do. It is one of my first songs I put on while scrapping. 

#3 - Rachel Platten - Fight Song

I LOVE this song. I think I know it off by heart. 

#4 - Vance Joy - Riptide 

I LOVE this song again. (I have a lot of favourite songs.) I know all the lyrics and love to sing this song. 

#5 - Keith Urban - Kiss Me

This song has been one of my favourites since I was little. I have always loved good Aussie country songs such as Keith Urban. 

#6 - Sam Smith - Like I Can 

Same as a few above, I just like this song. 

#7 - Taylor Swift - Style 

Same as Keith Urban, I have always loved Taylor Swift since the first day I heard 'Love Story' (which has been my all time favourite Taylor song. 

#8 - Conrad Sewell - Start Again

Love this song. (Funny how I like songs about love, that's the same as books) 

#9 - Lady Antebellum- I Did With You

Just another song I like about love. Also from one of my favourite movies at the moment. 

Last but not least. 

#10 - Sarah McLachlan - Ordinary Miracle 

I can tember singing this at a Christmas school concert maybe, but most of all from the most beautiful movie that every child has to see, Charlottes Web. 

So here you are, my top 10 songs I mostly listen too on a Saturday morning while scrapping at my desk with the beautiful morning sun coming through my bedroom window. 
I will be back this afternoon with todays prompt and I might even do a extra blog post of a 12x12 Traditional scrapbook layout I did for a mood board challenge.
I hope you all had a great day.
