What a Challenge......

I have been having some Chi issues of late and I get frustrated with my stiff, straight lines and neat stuff, I want to be good at the arty crazy side of Scrapping.... So Vicki Challenged me to Scrap like her!!!! I love Vicki's style but am always nervous of the ripping and heavy distressing etc. So Vicki gave me 9 elements I must use but how and with what else was up to me.

1. Distressing
2. Buttons attached with wire
3. Ripping
4. Paint splatting
5. Pizza Box
6. Mesh
7. Sewing
8. Paper Rolling
9. Fabric

So here is what I came up with. I really like the finished layout.

Thanks for looking. I will be using this style again. Thanks for the Challenge Vic.

I hope your feeling Scrappy and you all have creative Mojo. Jay xx

Nana B and Jake

Auntie Jay with Ben

Yummy! Daddy Steve is Feeding us.
On Friday I saw my First real sunrise EVER! from nothing, It was fantastic, it was like watching a live lava lamp. These are my Fav. Pictures ( I have around 150 lol) Vicki and I got up at 6am, ( I didn't even know that time was real LOL). We went down to the sea front, across some waste ground round the corner from my house and this is what we saw.

What a Great weekend. Hope your all well. Jay xx

Florida, Faeries, Slides and Walks...

... I have been having Fun Fun Fun....

Universal Studios Islands of adventure FLORIDA:

This first lo is using the gorgeous paper, transparancies and letters from the new company My little shoebox. I used them to scrap some old pictures of our florida Holiday.

I believe in Faeries, Do you?
I used some glitter stickers from MM, Chiosticker letters from BG, The paper is from the Beau Jardin Range from Bo Bunny, I had fun with stickles and stitching material and used lots of other fun bits too. Lots of fun to do.
Just another WINTERS WALK!
I was inspired to roll the paper tubes for this lo by a member on UKScrappers - username: ellsese and her Its a boy thing lo, which I have in my favs. Thank you so much for the inspiration. I found rolling the paper tubes quite Cathartic and the lo was great fun to do.
Slip Sliding away:
3 great Pictures of Vic and her Nephew Kristofer on the slide on our day at the park last summer. I used a slice for the first time to cut the frames and photo's, what a gorgeous and useful little machine, I want one now but as Vic has one there is no point (and no money lol) but I would recommend it. I also used distress sticles on the branches and it gave a great texture without over blinging it, brilliant stuff.

So these are my 4 most recent lo's, thanks for looking and I hope you have a scrappy day.

Jay xx

LOL 100 packs of Thickers

I saw a thread on UKScrappers about Thickers and when I mentioned I had 100 or so packs a photo was requested so I obliged (had such a giggle taking it) and thought I would pop it on here too. Rachel if you happen to read this, this picture is for you, lol happy packing.

Thanks for reading, I shall be back tomorrow with pictures of recent layouts, I was at my crop yesterday and got a total of 0 done, the worst result ever but I did have a fab giggle, which is the most important bit lol.

Happy scrapping Jay xx
