Brighton Weekend


Sorry if I haven't managed to visit you in the last couple of days but my virus has come back and yesterday I felt really awful, no energy and a very sore throat. Good job I schedule my posts ahead. I am feeling a bit better today so hopefully the virus is on its way out at last. Hope you are all well.

I've recently been posting back on Docrafts after a gap of about 3 years and they have a weekly challenge. This week it was a photo of sky, sand blue and white trainers. I was in the mood to make a scrapbook page and as I have a huge amount of photos waiting to be made into layouts knew this photos of a weekend in Brighton last Summer would be perfect for the challenge. 

I used sanded Core'dination and searched through my 12 x 12 box for some suitable papers. The backing paper reminds me of a boardwalk and the others of deckchairs. I didn't have a big enough die for the circle so drew round a dinner plate. I used an MB banner die. MFT shell die and some K&Co embellishments.

I would like to enter this into the holiday challenge at A Gem of a Challenge.
