By The Sea

Hi, back from a lovely week away in our caravan. Spent most of the time crafting so the weather didn't matter but we were lucky and had lots of sun. My friend and I take our caravans locally every year for a week just indulge in our hobby. Our husbands commute daily to work so we are free to craft all day - bliss. Anyway did quite a lot of scrapbooking as I have been meaning to scrap last years holiday to Scotland.
This is just one of the layouts I did this week.
We stayed in a fishermans cottage about twenty steps to the sea across the rocks. It really was idyllic.
Here I have used a lovely sandy / watery 12x12 paper. The pictures are my Husband, daughter and me - Can't believe how much my hair has grown since this picture (I had just finished chemotherapy) - it used to be straight but is now very curly! I backed them all on contrasting coloured card. The slide mounts I have had for a while - not sure were from and I used some rub ons for the words. The shells are all rub ons - not something I use often but they went so well. The crab is a button and I added some fish just to help give it a sea feel.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
deepocean/challenge-28- welcome summer
scrapbooksisters-challenge - 3 colours - blue,brown, green

Hi Susie,
this is a fabulous page with some great memories, thank you for sharing it with us at Crafty Ann's - but please will you come back to the challenge and re-link this project? I've had to remove the other link because it took me to another challenge and not your project here. I had to do a bit of detective work to track you down.
