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!

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!

So, here we are...
