Red, White & Aqua Challenge

Shimelle held a crop last weekend; I’m positive you know that already.
I worked long hours all weekend and the week wasn’t much better so I haven’t been able to join in as I would have loved to.
I started this last Sunday morning, I chopped the paper, chose the photo, photo-shopped it (my very new, very favourite thing),
Louis and Ali smiling
printed it, matted it and then just had time to gather a few embellies before I went to work.
Lovely Sue gave me a selection of red and aqua embellies from Scrap Angels in Cornwall. Aqua/Turquoise is my favourite colour; she knows me well Red heart
Lovely Susi, gave me the fab seagull embellie, and a few more so you will see a few more as I love seagulls.
So I was glad to get this layout finished today, which also helped me to explore how I scrapbook which was also part of our Explore class. I didn’t like not finishing the layout last week but I loved just the finishing and embellishing this morning and I spent more time on it.
I used my favourite red, debossed anchor button which I have been saving for just such a layout.
So that is my entry for the Red, White & Aqua Challenge.
