A Room with a view

It's my birthday weekend and I'm currently stuffed with take away curry and drinking wine. I had an early celebration last Sunday but I will share that in another post, probably tomorrow if you remind me lol! Anyway as it was a showery day today we didn't fancy going out so I managed to do some scrapping. I only managed one LO which took me all afternoon on and off.

This weeks challenge on UKS was set by the Bijoux Belles who asked us to scrap an outdoor theme, to use blue & to use stripes. As soon as I saw outdoor theme I knew I had to scrap one of our many camping photos so I rummaged through my photo box and came up with this

This photo was taken when we first went to Shell Island in 2010. It was soon busy as the weather was gorgeous. On the island it is a first come first served basis where you can pitch wherever you like. We drove all around the island looking for the ideal spot and eventually found a small spot on a cliff overlooking the beach. Next to the tent were a few steps down to the rock pools and we had the best view in town.

I originally pulled the stripe paper to use as a background but felt it was too busy so I decided on the reverse of a Kraft Jillybean Soup paper as a background instead. These were the only new sheets of paper I used the others were scraps. I also used a Creative Memories doily makes with some Mister Hueys on the background. I used American Crafts Thickers and Kesi Art alphas for the title and added some washi tape, an Elle's studio pennant and a camping flair badge to the top corner.

Love & hugs
