Passing The Page With JSquared #2

Jimjams - layout detail - cog clusterMy lovely friend Julie (aka JSquared) is celebrating her 2nd Blogiversary today and is marking it with a Pass the Page. She collected a baker's dozen of us together to each scraplift a page in turn. The person before me in the chain was my very good friend Ruth (if she sent you here then you're on track, if not, you might like to start at the beginning with Julie here). Ruth is currently scrapping photos from her visit to the Harry Potter Studios so it seemed extra appropriate for me to use her page as inspiration for a photo of another magical place (as well a gears & cogs cut from her dies at our Bloggers' Retreat).

Jimjams - layout - A Spell in the Sick Bay @ MGM

Photo - enjoying the Ice-cream Social at Epcot
Journalling on the "this is life" tag tells the story of how our early morning plans to ride the Tower of Terror resulted in Child No.3 feeling violently "unwell" at MGM Studios.  Luckily, Disney have a great health centre and she was able to recover there for a couple of hours in a darkened room with me while the men-folk carried on enjoying the rides.  By mid-day she had recovered and was adamant that the Ice Cream Social at Epcot was next on the agenda!! The back of the tag has photo-proof that a couple of hours sick bay sleep worked their magic and Child No.3 was back to "normal"!

Can you see the resemblance to Ruths's page? I kept the large single photo, corner embellishments and the horizontal strip.  I replaced the subtle checked paper with vellum and switched the journalling for my title.  All supplies are from my March Counterfeit Kit.

I wonder what elements were kept or discarded when Kirsty scraplifted my page? Before you pop over to see, you should know that there is a prize available on this Pass the Page hop, all you have to do is comment (here, there and everywhere)!

I really like these colours and the subtle way you've changed the LO

alexa said...

I'm beginning to see some of the things here which came my way! That softly patterned paper with the circular effect, and the chevron pattern across the bottom - fascinating to see your lovely take on it, Jemma!

Gail said...

What a great looking page. Love the addition of the chevron paper and the gears & buttons.

Alison said...

I see you're still playing with those gears, Jemma! Love the page and how it's starting to change!

Great page [and story] Jemma. I love how you've used the chevron paper.

Fay aka Beautifullily said...

Great to see this page evolving - like people have already said you can really see the changes kicking in now. Loving the hexagons and chevrons

Sian said...

I do love Pass the Page..it's a fascinating process! I like your added touch of having another magical story to move on down the line with :)

K said...

Beautiful page Jem, love the colours & thank you for the vellum inspiration :)

Sandie said...

Beautiful Jemma - I love how you used Ruth's page to create your own using different materials. Glad that the story behind your page has a happy ending!

Gorgeous page--the orange papers and embellishments are the perfect setting for your photo. The gears and such that you used remind of Disney's famous "imagineering!"

JulieJ said...

I should have known that yours would be the first big change - and nothing wrong with that. The stack has been straightened and there's still a circular embellishment and a star, but everything else has come form Ruth's additions and changes.
Love your stitched vellum and you know I like bright colours ;-) and this is where the hexagons arrived. Love that mini alpha set - not seen those before.
Thanks for being part of the celebrations.

Jimjams said...

Thanks for including me Julie - I love how some people have borrowed elements and stamped their own style on it, and others have borrowed style and stamped their own elements on it!

Cool hexyletters

JO SOWERBY said...

I love the pun in the title, clever. That hat sculpture is amazing. Love the chevron patterned paper and the title is brilliant. Those cogs are perfect and perhaps they are what was trying desperately to get out of her die on our ''FB cybercrop thingy''

love the hex alphas. Never seen those before. Who makes them?

humel said...

This is very 'you', Jemma - yet I can see how it started with Ruth's layout :) Fab! x

PurpleJet said...

Like your bright colours and I can see how your layout reflects Ruth's.

Missus Wookie said...

I really love the bright colours and the gears - fun that they were in yours and then again in mine :) I'm so enjoying seeing how things develop and change.

Mary B said...

what a super page love the cogs and the hexagon letters

Lisa-Jane said...

I love that lettering on "Spell" and I'm a sucker for anything Echo Park so loving the papers too.

glorygirl said...

Love how you've captured the story here. I can see elements of the layout you've lifted, as well as your own style shining through. So much fun!

yyam said...

Such a happy page! I love the bright happy hues here and the way you embellished!

Lesley G said...

Great story and super page. I love Terror Towers!!! Isn't it amazing how ice cream is the cure of all ills! Love the cogs and little flag :) x

Lindsay Coleman said...

Great page, page love the zigzag & patterns. x

sassyscrapper said...

Awwww...what a place to get sick. Glad she was able to rest and get some Disney-style TLC. I love the way you made this page Disney, without it being too theme-y.

Angela Coles said...

awesome page, and what a cool idea for a scrap-hop

DebiJ said...

Love these Whispers...its fab to see each of your styles & also get some inspiration!
Great that you have scrapped to 'not so good' event in such a fabulous way here, cos it was just part of the day!
