Not So Beachy Keen - Creative & Sassy Scrappers

A very big hello to summer!!! Wait. What. Its only September. Who cares, this weather is gorgeous!
I am again outside while the kiddies play lathered in sunscreen (they got my skin, poor lil things) on a perfect 30 degree day. And it is meant to stay this way the whole week! High five Mother Nature.
Anyway. On to the business. Today I share a layout of Chloe back in April last year when she had her first full beach experience, she wasn't a fan...

Not So Beachy Keen

The page design is based on Creative Scrappers sketch number 277. To make it my own I switched triangle for shells.

Meanwhile the inspiration to scrap this photo came from the September Mood Board at the online store Sassy Scrappers.
I must confess, during our holiday to Mollymook two weeks I ago, I may have staged a photo or two with this scrappy challenge in mind (you know your a scrapper once that happens!) but couldn't stop thinking about the difference between her first time and now. So I thought it best to get that on paper asap.

Unlike last months Sassy Mood Board entry HERE, this time I was inspired by the overall 'feel/topic' and mostly the top right image, such as the title.

 My partner loves terrible puns, so after reading the image words I couldn't help but make the title a play on words from the saying 'peachy keen'.

The quote on this PL card could not be more perfect because that is exactly what happened.
With my continued effort to journal more I decided to write about both beach experiences that lend me to this page. I journaled the photo-relevant details in clear view onto the background itself.

And used this extremely relevant PL card to hide the 'now' contrast details.

Thank you muchly for checking out my page.
I hold very high hopes of being able to create another page before months end (yes I do realise that is tomorrow... I pray for an early night for the kids!)

  1. Beautiful page - such great paper too! Love the play on words. Thanks for playing along Nicole :)

  2. Oh this is so cute, love that background paper and the sweet photo. thanks for joining in at Sassy Scrapper.

  3. I remember a very funny day at Manly beach. It was hysterical! She hated the feeling of the sand on her feet. I love the layering of the differnet mediums under the photo. I also like the way you have used string to frame the photo. I think journalling more is a great idea, then none of the sentiments are lost to time. She does take after her great auntie a little bit, don't you think? Great work Nic. XXX

    1. This page is about that day at Manly. You're mentioned in the journaling.
