Is Summer Over?

The weather has certainly cooled off now and I'm wondering if we've had our summer already :) If we have I have a little piece of my summer to share with you.

On the 19th March I was staying down with Paul and the weather was so lovely we decided to take Pippy for a walk down to the beach.  The sun was shining and there were plenty of people down there, some of them even having a BBQ.  As I snapped away with my camera I knew those beach photos would be part of my feature page for March's Document 2011 and here's the layout I've done:
The papers are from the Gotta Craft April kit, which is gorgeous and then I added some stunning embellishments:
The embellishments are a tiny part of the April Kit from The Make and Create Shop.  If you have never bought one of Anna's kits then I can't recommend them enough.  The kits are loaded with a mixture of ready made and handmade pieces and they're also a bit of a bargain :)
The beach looked great and I wish I was there now, whatever the weather!

I've been given some great tips on making up page kits so I might give that a go later if I can shake of the headache I've got.  I'm going to two crops this week and, for once, I would like to be super productive :)

Take care

Great layout! I like the embellishment with the net - I wouldn't have thought to use the buttons, but that is perfect (must remember it!).

What a lovely layout Jo! I love how you've layered the embellishments and used the sequin trim! Thanks for sharing this and for the kind words too!
