Please welcome our very special guest designer, Jackie Edwards, with her lovely layout for our challenge this month. There is still time to play along with us - we'd love to see your entry.

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 over sixteen 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 too which means I can now cut 12x12 files!!
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 layout might give you some inspiration for this months challenge!
Thank you so much for being our guest designer this month. It has been delightful having you join us.
You still have plenty of time until the end of the month to upload your own take on our challenge. All details are on the blog sidebar. We'd love to see what you will do with our colour this month.
