A Holiday Nibble!

As it's holiday time I thought I'd post a photo taken on holiday in Weymouth way back when.

In the photo, Hannah is two, and I'm expecting Katie.  We used to rent a lovely basement flat right on the seafront at Weymouth, in one of the gorgeous Georgian houses overlooking the beach.

Hannah used to love to play with the silly teeth my Dad would tease her with, hence the photo, title and journalling.

 The unusual colour palette is one of the Simple Recipes published monthly on UKScrappers to get us using old stash, and there's plenty of that on this page.

The letters for the title are by Cosmo Cricket, and as the colours weren't right I painted them with red, then on top with Ranger crackle in mustard.

One of the toughest parts of the challenge was to use something from the kitchen.
I ferreted about until i found a posh fruit tea bag in a decorated packet, the tea was made, and the packaging cut up to provide the lady on top of the journalling block, and the pleated border under it.  I do like a challenge for making me try out something new.

Super page - love the way you've adapted the title letters.
