January at the coast



Found another scrap challenge site - somewhat addicted to these at the moment, just kick starts my scrapping. Anyhoo this is called A Mission to Create and this is challenge #0008. You have to use at least three of the following criteria - stitching, rubons, colours (red, white, turquoise),paint and a curved title. I managed all except the paint (and the white is quite faint as I used a white ink pad on the brown card stock). Most of the elements came from this months cocoa Daisy kit ( a lovely package waiting for me on my doorstep when I got back from Mum and Dad's). I thought it looked a bit bare so I added the chain across the top of the lace paper and I think it made the LO. A bit of surf punk (I have a fake sharks tooth chain somewhere which would have been perfect but alas I couldn't find it).

The photo of Meaghan was taken when we went across to the coast a few weekends ago and visited some friends at South Durras Beach.

Ooh, I love this! The lace cardstock is perfect and I love the stitching at the bottom. Great layout. I haven't done anything with mine - dealing with burst pipes and house sales seems not to be good for the creative spirit. ;-D
