When Less Is More.......

That's just what I thought when I looked at this layout!
I could have gone on and on with the twiddly bits but just stopped here...


 I used the Pencil Lines Sketch 225 to get started, and had great fun with all the faux stitching and distressing.
The papers are from October Afternoon- again! and I used my newest purchase from Etsy-
Red Bakers Twine.

I must credit my sister-in-law Karen for taking the photo, it was one of the few perfect days on Felixstowe beach last summer, Sunny and NO wind!!

Thanks for stopping by....
