A card and Scarborough Photos

Hi All from a very sunny NE UK Coast. It is cold and we do have showers but the sky is mostly blue and sunny so a nice day for a walk. Thank you for dropping by and I hope you will enjoy the post today.

I just saw a challenge at Shopping Your Stash and it was to use something chipboard. I have a box full of chip board shapes so I thought it was time to get one of them out.

The boot shape was one I had left from a set by Tando and I painted it brown and added some gold glitter--it now looks white on the photograph. The boot holes I filled with black beads and then added some silk flowers.

We went to Scarborough one day in the week and it was a beautiful day. I forgot to take my camera so these were taken on Vic's phone.

Lots of new beach huts and some double decker ones. They had set up an office to get people to rent the huts for the coming week when the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race ends along the seafront.

This is the Grand Hotel which is mostly used for coach tours these days

A nice peaceful and shady place to sit for a while in Peasholme Park

Part of the Spa Complex where you can sit outside and have a drink or lunch and listen to live music and look at the beautiful view.

Have a great day 

Love Chrissie xx
