Relaxing at Sea

Good morning all.
Off out today to see my second nephew and his intended to finalise the wedding stationery, hopefully I'll then manage to get a start made before I go away next month! I've spent the last few days getting ahead with some DT work and birthday cards.

Finally managed some digi scrapping over the weekend. Trish at Template Dreams brought out a new kit called "Relaxing at Sea" just as I went on holiday so managed to put it to good use using a photo of me and Mark from a cruise in 1995!!

I love seeing faded background images on other peoples layouts so decided to try it out myself....I usually end up with the main part of the picture under the rest of the design but hit lucky this time!

Challenges entered:
Lasting Memories - try something new
Digitally Sweet - summertime colours
The Pink Elephant - anything but a card
