This year, like last we holidayed at home :(  It must be admitted that it isn't the same as going away, and totally getting away from it all, and with unreliable English weather on top ... not ideal!  However, we had some nice days out and did some fun things, and living this close to Bournemouth and the beach, we waited until the morning to see what the weather was like before making any decisions about what to do each day.  This was one of those days :

I need to thank my friend Daphne for encouraging me to use (instead of squirrel away and look at and stroke!) some of my favourite papers, and these are indeed some of my favourite papers, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird - love love love them (although sadly I only discovered them late so couldn't get many nor any embellishments etc).

  2. Hey, I have this same paper!!! Great minds think alike! This is a gorgeous layout, I truly love how you've centred the photos with the journaling on the side, beautiful! We were in the same boat this summer, "staycation"! You're very lucky to be living so close to the ocean, however (but I think you know that, right?) Nolan's been talking these past couple days about how he would love to vacation in Europe - I just said, start saving, buddy! Hugs, Roxy.

  3. love the page, the paper looks fab, so yummy...xx
