Merimbula 1999

I was lucky enough to be the random winner at D-lish Scraps last month and received a February 'Just Add Paper' pack. I had been looking at these packs for a few months but hadn't purchased one previously. This pack was fantastic, especially for someone like me who has trouble getting the extra embellishments down. Anyway, the Feb mood board and matching pack was beach themed with lots of this beautiful blue colour. I went through my old photos and came across these two from a family holiday 15 years ago.
It's funny what you remember when looking back at holidays from a long time ago. I remember we listed to the Melbourne Storm win a grand final on the radio while we were driving there. I remember we stayed in a weird shaped unit because I randomly stabbed my finger at the page in the accommodation book during a teenaged hissy fit when dad was booking it. I remember even then I wasn't really a beach person so while the rest of my family went in the water I stayed on the sand and built a sand castle.

The kitwas fantastic and I really didn't need to add much to it. I washed the cardstock with Dylusions ink, used some Kaiserkraft Sandy Toes paper to mat the photos on, threw on a silver embossed Scrapmatts chipboard starfish (love the way the detail still comes through the embossing), the silver washi tape and the aphas. Here is the mood board:
