Fourth LO with my Great Expectations kit

Afternoon all...

Firstly may I say welcome to two new followers! What a privilege it is for me to know my blogging may be of interest to some people! is a new LO I've just made with my Great Expectations March kit in my capacity as Guest Designer over on the CKCB.

I used the inspiration from SJ Crafts March challenge whereby we were challenged to use their idea as a start for your LO... So I took one look at the photos and just knew exactly which photos I was going to use.

Two years ago, one sunny but blustery day some friends and I took a weekend away to Camber Sands, a beach about an hours drive from here. We stayed at a super little B&B and in the morning, after a hearty breakfast we went for a, somewhat chilly, walk along the beach to blow away the cobwebs and walk off some of that breakfast!

I started with the background paper from my kit and used the reverse side of the papers rather than the ones I had originally photographed... And I think they work rather well. I have tucked a tag behind the top right of the photograph to tell the story.

Thanks for looking and do remember to say you've popped by!

Have a good day!

  3. Great layout, love the double color for the font.

  5. Love the texture and embellishment clusters on this page Elaine ... a bit like the interesting things you find ON a beach. Looks like a great place to visit.
