I love this old photo of my husband's family when they were growing up. It was taken in Bridlington, Yorkshire and shows an era when we still had summers in England!!! I love how I managed (by chance) to find a paper that matched the wind breaker almost perfectly. The bucket and spade were cut from the Cricut "Life's a Beach" cartridge and shaded using Promarkers. I cut out the bunting using a steel die (sorry, don't know which brand) on white card and coloured it in with Promarkers too.
but I have been playing and creating a little. Its been an eventful summer with lots of highs and lows. I have done some traveling to Ireland (twice) and to Iceland and Norway which was spectacular and had some well needed R & R. Unfortunately, the lows were very low and saw the passing of my mum at the ripe old age of 84. I have also had some minor health issues due to stress ( go figure!).
Over the summer I had the opportunity to create some wonderful scrapbook pages with the inspiration offered by a great friend who has recently signed up as a Stampin' Up demonstrator. At the party I hosted last week I made this cute card, ready to go in my "I need a card now!" stash.
