JBS 'Be Our Guest' Online Crop Part 2!

i had a scrappy day to myself yesterday and it was bliss! i completed a few more pages inspired for the challenges at the JBS online crop. i wish i could have played along with a few more as they were all super inspiring. i had a lot of fun with this crop and can't wait for the next one, big thanks to Doris, Jenni and the Team for putting so much work into the it.

Dina's challenge was to create a page based on the prompt 'this is me...'

Papers, Crepe Ribbon, Ticket: Jenni Bowlin Studios, Frame & Mists: Studio Calico, Twine from own stash. 

i am all to aware of my faults and try hard to work on them to become a better person, the kind of person that i want to be. But we are all have our imperfections and i try to embrace that, so there's a few of my bad traits mixed in with some of my good qualities on this page, because we are are all imperfect - it's what makes us human.

Doris set a challenge to use at least 4 different patterned papers on your page without using a trimmer! eeep! Luckily i had lots of scraps over from my previous pages so this one wasn't as difficult as i was anticipating.

Papers, Crepe Ribbon, Journalling Card: Jenni Bowlin Studios, Alphabet Stickers: Sassafras, Mist: Studio Calico, Twine, Embroidery Floss & Ribbon from own stash. 

These photos were taken in Stratford Upon Avon last April & they're of Shakespeare's Birthplace. i love that we have so much history to explore in this country!

I love both of these! so pretty, and really making me want to do something cool with the misty-paint effect. Especially love the frame on the top page. :)

Completely smitten with both of these - colours, patterns, journalling and (sigh) baker's twine. All so gorgeous!
