Oh I do like to be beside the seaside...

...Beside the seaside...beside the sea!!!



Actually I am not keen on the whole beach scene, I hate sand between my toes and I have a bit of a phobia of birds...Seagulls are just plain scary!



But the beach makes a fantastic photo for scrapbook layouts, he he he so I suffer just for my scrappin!



Here are two beachy layouts I have completed, they were both intended for comps but the Beach Babe one had to have stamping on and I forgot...oops. I WILL READ COMPETITION CRITERIA CAREFULLY ;)



Here goes layout 1 is for a comp where the photo had to be cut into at least three pieces:

Card is all Bazzill, hand cut arrow, journalling block is an Autumn Leaves stamp, inking, journalling and doodling to finish.


And layout 2 had to be a nautical/beachy theme THAT INCLUDED STAMPING...(note to self Read carefully)

Again all cardstock is Bazzill, real little shells came from a chepie card kit, bit of string, offcut of hessian and lots of journalling and doodling, also used acrylic paint on the edges to get a sun bleached look.

Beautiful LO's Est. Know what you mean about seagulls, I get attacked by them loads, especially at nesting time. I swear they recognise me! lol.
