Beach Day

June 9, 2018

Today’s page showcases a photo of my Dad, his mother and Aunty on the way to the beach.  I’m pretty sure they used to go to Brighton-Le-Sands by train.  I used the Sea of Textures stamp set to add some interest to the lower right hand side of a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page.  I stamped the border image across the section using Balmy Blue ink (did I tell you that I am truly loving this colour).   To add a little more interest I stamped the tall seaweed image using Mint Macaron ink over the top.  I stamped clusters of the large seaweed image using Fresh Fig ink and also some smaller seaweed images using Night of Navy ink.  I layered four pieces of the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper onto Night of Navy 12″ x 12″ card and attached it to the left hand side of the stamped page.  I attached my photo to Night of Navy card and then to the Designer Series Paper panel.  I printed my journalling onto Whisper White card and cut it into strips.  The journaling is attached to Night of Navy card before being attached over the stamping.  I stamped the letters from the Lined Alphabet onto Balmy Blue card using Night of Navy ink to create the title.  I cut out the letters using the Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies.  You do have to fussy cut them just a little to completely release the letters.

I love how the photo on this page showcases how different life was when my Dad was young.  A trip to the beach was a full day event and was a wonderful opportunity for whole families to come together.   I hope you like my page and that it inspires you to do some more Memory Keeping with your treasured photos.

Bye for now,
