Inspired by Amanda, Jacqui's shoe and the chickens

Well I have had the pleasure of scrapping with my friend Jacqui again today. She came armed with her finished shoe.

She has used Tickler Creations flowers. Ribbon, feathers and charm from Spotlight.

The heel is covered with silver rhinestones. At least a million she says lol.

The ribbon around the shoes she has pleated herself. I thought she had brought it that way but she sat patiently and did it herself. Clever little cookie isn't she.
Now Jacqui is a mum of 5 children under 11 so it's amazing she gets time to do any scrapbooking!
She is also mother to one of the Ickys.

This page I have used Daisy Bucket Designs, My little monsters papers and thickers. Thats about all!

The journaling says.... I had my friend Jacqui's son staying with us for the night. His name s NICKY, my daughter Mikaela is called MICKY. Together we call them the ICKYS. They are so alike you would swear they must be brother and sister. They are both CHUBBY, Both make SILLY noises. Both EAT like they are planning on starving for the next week. Both have a HILARIOUS sense of humour. Both are the ODD one out in their family. Both are LOUD and Silly. We love the Icky's :)

Page two for the day is Hagely Farm. This is me ages about 8 I think on a school trip to Hagley Farm. I look pretty impressed with the chickens. I actually remember this trip. We had to collect clean and grade the eggs for sale. We also tended the pigs, made candles and butter and went to school for the day in an old school house where we had to write with a quill and were threatened with the cane. I have used Buzz and Bloom Pleasantville chip board houses from My2Angels, Thickers, Chocolate Covered Cherries, Cherry Garcia patterned paper, Basic Grey rub ons, Kaiser Black Paint and ribbon from my stash.

My third page for the day was inspired by Amanda's shabby chic page on her blog of herself as a little one :) I haven't really tried shabby chic before so it was fun! I have used Websters paper, rhinestone words, charms, velvet leaves, tags and Doileys from My2Angels. The gorgeous flowers are the new prima flowers from Karen's Skrappin' Kupboard. The beautiful pearl butterfly and flourish up the side is also a new Prima release from Karen's.

Flowers, tags, charms and leaves from My2Angels. I have used glimmermist on the doiley and hidden journaling tag.

The gorgeous new prima flowers.


  1. thanks for putting up Patricia shoe!!...we are scrapping a hat or facinator??? how ever that is spelt!!!... for melbourne cup...I think that flower on the shoe would be great!!!

  2. LOl its Jacqui's shoe! You got Trish on the brain now haven't you *snort*

  3. How cow you have been busy! They all look fantastic (just asked you on facebook if you had done the icky layout, should have checked your blog first). Tell Jacqui LOVE the shoe
    the pleasantville looks awesome in black, I shamefully have still not used it, just can never find the right layout or mojo to, but now I am definitely going to use it.

  4. it reminds me of the nightmare before Christmas painted black. would be great on a Halloween page I think

  5. I love all the LOs there, you are certainly talented and inspire me, love them, and im stoked and amazed that you were inspired by my shabby LO, love your version better than mine. keep the inspiration coming

  6. Your work is wonderful sweetie, I just noticed that you put your scrap wall unit up here too! One day I might be as lucky as you and he might make me one. I doubt it tho lol.
