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 eight 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 out with titles and images on many occasions.
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!
I don’t know what I would do now if I didn’t scrap!!!
Jackie doesn't have a blog but has an online gallery here where you can see her work.
Here are some of Jackie's pages ...
