Beach Bum!

Hi everyone,

The other day I got together with my good friend Trina for a little scrapping session. I took along my Quirky Kit and basic supplies only - sometimes I am overwhelmed by the ridiculous amount of stash I have at home, so it is refreshing to work with a kit and only the kit and no temptation to add a bit of this or that!

Here's my page, showing a photo of one of my son Richard playing at the beach nearly thirty years ago now!!!

This is a very subtle colour palette for me, but I think it really suits the picture and the touch of gold gives it a bit of punch. I used one of the sketches which came with the kit and all I added was ink, washi and a scrap of twine. Oh and the BUM letters were from a previous Quirky Kit.

I have loads more to use - next I may do a couple of pocket pages to go with this as I have more pictures of the same day out.

Thanks for popping in today, see you again soon :o)

Oh, what a sweet photo and a fun title! Love the layering technique and the frame within the photo. I know what you mean about kits being easier to work with. It takes the guessing out of the process and just makes things more simple. Enjoy your weekend, Annie!

I think I need to do the same thing. I get overwhelmed by so much stuff and then I also want to put it all onto the layout too... what the hell is up with that. I feel like I have no mojo I think because it has been so long since I played. So I got some kits too.
Love the papers of this one and the little frame on the photo is perfect. Love it Annie
