I have just found this photo of a layout I made at a training day back in May run by Stampin' Up!  I have to admit I wouldn't have chosen this picture for the layout but I just took a couple of "Summer" photo's along and hoped they would work, thankfully it did!!

The photo was taken in late April 2011 on a surprisingly hot and sunny day with beautiful blue skies.
The layout uses some of the gorgeous Twitterpated papers with the Blossom punch and 5-Petal Punch, the flags were hand cut, the background card was stamped with the lovely Mixed Bunch stamp set.

There has been some much talked about "yarn bombing" at Saltburn this year.  A length of the pier has been decorated with all kinds of knitted dolls and accessories celebrating the Olympics.

There has been TV crews and many reporters visiting Saltburn as the "yarn bombing" has made global news and no doubt brought many new visitors to this lovely Victorian seaside town.

I think this is what most of us have found our selves doing!!

Sadly not everyone has respected the work that the secret knitters have done - a few weeks ago some of their work was vandalised, so everything was taken down - but not to be beaten the knitters returned their work with a knitted CCTV camera just in time for the start of the Olympics.

After fish & chips on the pier (a seaside must!!) Lucy decided to have a paddle in the sea. I managed to get some good photo's of her - so I think there will be more Saltburn layouts soon!!
