Hi! My name is Jackie Edwards and I live in Southend-on-Sea, Essex in the UK.
I am a widow but have a wonderful daughter and three beautiful grandchildren who are mostly the subjects of my layouts.
I have been scrapping for about ten years now. I discovered scrapbooking when I was on holiday in America when my first Grandchild was about a year old and my style has changed many times over the years. I am very lucky to have my own craft room and because I am now retired, I can scrap all day and not have to clear everything away!
I have always been involved with craft in some form – sewing, cross-stitch, cards, altered art (I love Tim Holtz!) but seem to return to scrapbooking every time. My best buy a few years ago was my Craft Robo and this has helped me with titles and images on many occasions….I now have a Cameo, just got to get to grips with it!!
I very much enjoy entering challenges because they give me the starting point for a layout, whether it’s a sketch or other criteria……..although the end result doesn’t always reflect the original design or intention! LOL
I don’t know what I would do now if I didn’t scrap!!!
I was very pleased to be asked to be GDT this month and hope that my layouts might give you some inspiration for this months challenges!
Top 3 and GDT will be chosen by a voting process... prize will be randomly selected.
Good luck and have fun! Can't wait to see you for our month of challenges!!
