life's a beach...

Life is a beach when you are a little boy with not a care in the world other than playing in the water and waves on  the beach  with your brother.... even though the tempertaure is very very cold. Recently when my lovely friend Lydia came to stay all the way from Canada we took her to an Aussie beach, it was a cold Autumn day but it didnt stop my two boys having fun in the waves. More delish Pink Paislee pattern paper from Handmadebysuzanne here. Oh and fun fun washi tape from Hambly.



For all those lovely ladies who I come to visit and leave a comment please bare with me as I am unable to comment on blogs atm , I have not forgotten about you.
Till next time...

What an amazing photo!! A perfect moment in time! I love your mix of papers here and the burlap and twine add such a great texture. Wonderful how the distressing allows a peek of red to show. Amazing as usual!! FYI I think Marelize is having the same Blogger issue. She was wondering if anyone else was having trouble.
