Memories of ................


Where did the last four weeks go ??  This year seems to be wizzing past, although spring weather has not appeared yet - today is cold, windy and occasional snow and hail showers.  I have been busy making some lovely projects, but sadly I can't share them with you as (such excitement!!!) they are DT works for publication, so watch this space for sneak peaks during May and then again in July. 

But I thought I would share this layout we did at Shetland Scrapbookers a couple of weeks ago.  Well done Julie for coming up with such a great fun time - cutting and painting corrugated card - we were all like children again!  Most members celebrated their husband's sheds, but I had so many memories of beachut holidays as a child and teenager, I thought it would be quite appropriate to make a beach scene. 

I am loving these old b/w photos in my Mum and Dad's collection - nothing majorly close up, occasionally blurry and of days when I was thin(ish).  So different from the digital ones of today.

Have a good weekend everyone and thanks for visiting.

I have always loved beaches, huts, in fact anything at all to do with the sea.
I love how you have captured the 'seaside' colours of chalky tones in this piece. The stamping in the background is subtle and yet such an important part of the 'whole'. I really do love your work Jenni - I know it sounds trite but it is inspirational.
