Sunshiny Day

Another page in response to one of the prompts from this wonderful class. This time it was to use a grid. So once again I pulled out bits and pieces that 'sort of ' went together and worked out where I wanted them to go.

We have a little stationers in our town, it is very small and an independant shop, in fact the only time I can get there is on a Saturday and he closes at 1pm so I have to be quick! I was quick enough yesterday and when I went in, supposidly for card for work, I just had to have a little look in his craft section. I found a Papermania decopage kit that was seaside based and thought that it would be ideal for my layout. 

I decided on and cut out all the components yesterday, and stuck it together this morning - I had chosen everything on the page around a photo of Gracia and Josh at the beach but at the very last moment changed the photo for one that I liked better!  A woman of great indecision - that's me.

Also as I am taking part in Rinda's Photo Scavinger hunt I was delighted to find a woman dressed as a Windmill yesterday - how random is that?


Reasons to be cheerful

1.  A day of cleaning the house and cutting and sticking, yesterday, what more could a girl want - ok I admit it a day of just cutting and sticking and putting up with an untidy house would be better but I have to get a bit of cleaning done occasionally and I do like the end results.

2.  Kids still having a wonderful time in Turkey - that girl of mine cracks me up as she is way too old for her years.  They went on a midnight boat trip and she complained that it was ruined by rubbish pop music blasting out all the way!

3.  I can feel an afternoon of crafting coming on - designing the class for July's crop.  Look out scissors and herma here I come .

And how perfect is that photo....what's the betting no-one else on the hunt is going to have one like that!!

I'm a huge fan of beach huts and I love that element on the layout. You are truly the queen of layering!

Lovely layout and the windmill lady is really strange!

Grids are one of my favorite ways to create a layout. I haven't done much with Jennifer's class (yet).
I love, love, love your windmill!!!
