Nina Crafts June Project Club: Scrapbook Page

Well, what can I say this is my last Nina Crafts Project Club make to share with you! 

So before we get on with the crafting, I would like to take this opportunity to say huge thank you to you all, for crafting along with me for the past few years and for all the lovely comments you have left in that time! It has been my privilege to join you on your crafty makes, and I hope you have enjoyed this journey too!

But, as they say as one door closes another opens, so pop back soon to see what I am up to.........

Anyway for the my final time

Lets get creative......

This scrapbook page was so much fun to make and it also made me dig out some of those old (VERY old!!!!) photos.

How to Make
I liked the back ground on the flag card so I used it for an 8 inch scrapbook page making it look like sand,sea and sky.

I added the chair, beech hut, a bucket full of ice creams, the Sizzlits Coastal Set 38-9692 dies were also.
