Just love this time of the year to scrap all those summery layouts. I left the Scrapmatts chipboard raw because i feel it matches the look of the sand.

CB1097 Floral Spray 01

Thought i might get a Xmas Layout done...lots of layering in this one with some beautiful Websters pp

A close up:

DM 703 WE
CB6061 Shells
SW004 Beach 01
SW003 Fun 01

As soon as i looked at my big wheel , i knew then that i wanted to make an OTP.Had alot of fun with this one!

Some close ups:

I started by painting my background with 2 colours for the scenery and then overlapped the wheel slightly over the edge of my canvas. I then added the Scrapmatts shells and other embellishments

Thanks for some really great Scrapmatts made it easy to work with when you are so excited about the product!
