Just for fun scrapping

The last of retreat scrapped pages, this Pirate page was inspired by Lizzi Challenging me to use a gifted piece of paper, One of which I knew I wouldn't use a  whole sheet - it was a deserted island scene with palm tree, parrot, rum barrel and treasure chest. But not one to knock back a challenge, I enjoyed working on the fussy cutting of the parrot and barrel. The rest of this page just fell into place. Thanks to Peg and Lizzi for there papers.

I love this page, I had so much fun, but then it is completed in my favourite colours, my totally fail safe zone. Graphic 45 from the Communique collection finished with a little stitching. Tickets are the results of Tim Holtz/Big Shot dies and embossing - I love the end result embossed tickets.


  1. Oh these look like lots of fun. Love the gathered ribbon on the first layout and your tissue paper flower looks stunning in the second... Love it all :)


Thank you for your beautiful heartfelt comments on my blog, I really appreciate the time and effort it takes. {heart hugs}
