From Clean And Simple to... Messy And Complicated?

My Clean & Simple phase was never going to last!

I got the urge to scrapbook on Saturday night, inspired by a sketch on the Pencil Lines sketch blog, and here was the result:

The layout documents a trip to the beach last weekend to explore the fishermens' huts and boats. Harry was particularly drawn to this bright yellow one. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to add some strandline treasures (including dried seaweed, fishing line and a shell) that I'd been hoarding for ages.

Another fabulous layout! the embellies are just great...seaweed! Will it smell? haha

Love the curled papers...really great sarah. No wonder you get your work published so frequently

Thank you Jacky.. it's certainly a touchy feely one!

But in answer to Pat.. yes it does smell if you give it a good sniff (so you might not want to touch the seaweedy bits) Heehee!!!
