Summer Scrapping Layout

(Well a complete change of blog background as I received a strange email asking me to remove the free template I downloaded ages ago .... so rather chose a plain blogger template.)

I had loads of fun making this layout today , its a rather old holiday picture of me at the Heads in Knysna. We used to come here on holiday, from the Eastern Cape , but now live 20 minutes away in Sedgefield. The whole Western Cape is filled with beautiful beaches and places to explore and the Heads was a favourite of ours and still is !

I am entering this layout into the challenge at Scrap Africa which asks for the colours green, blue and white as well as two photos and also #6 at Scrap our Stash Challenge which has a Summertime Challenge with the added request of at least 3 pre-made Die- cut embellishments from your stash.  ( I have used 5)

Both challenge sites are well worth a visit !



An of course please let me know via  a comment what you think of my layout.

  5. Love your page Wendy. Not something I do, but love to see what everyone comes up with. We used to visit your part of the country often when our boys were still at home, but now with 2 overseas and the other 2 here close by, we tend to have less SA travelling time. Have always loved Knysna and the Heads was a firm favourite with us all. Hugs, Ursula

What a lovely surprise when I saw that you are a scrapbooker - I've been doing a lot more scrapbooking lately and have been experimenting with mixed media work a lot - it is such a lot of fun!!
