Beside the seaside - F

Hello everyone Hope all are keepin well.  The challenges this week over at Eclectic Ellapu are Seaside/nautical for the pink team and Alice in Wonderland for the purple team.  WOW heaps of scope there don't you think.  Seeing as I am on the pink team the seaside it is lol.

As from this week the challenges will be monthly on the 1st of every month.  This will be easier for all.

Now for my Dt inspiration for this month.  I printed a photo from the internet and used papers from my stash.  I layered and matted on kraft card and distressed the edges.  For the photo and sentiment I tore them to look old and splashed with water (I love doing that lol).  The lace I also used distress ink to age it.

Thats it folks all done and dusted. I do hope we see you over at Eclectic Ellapu joining in.

Now for the pics (not copious amounts lol)

Hugz and love
