Oooooohh Look What the Postie Brought!!!!!!!!!

I recently suscribed to Quirky kits and when Leo posted that the first kit I would get was to be reminiscent of vintage seaside I couldnt wait to get my sticky mitts on it.

I am not usually a fan of being rudely awakened from bed by a knock on the door at 7.30 pm but on Monday it was the postie bearing a pizza box.

Look what was inside. The kit itself was wrapped up in this adorable pink and white polka dot tissue and all tied up with bakers twine. It looked almost too good to open.

Once inside though I was delighted, the papers are lush, the embellies are fab and I just love the seagull pin and the seaside badges. It will be a thought to cut up those lovely papers but I am already planning in my head what I will do with them. I have some black and white piccies of me on the beach as a wee girl in my beloved Beadnell and I think a layout with them could well be on the cards. I also bought one of those lovely 7 gypsies atc type trays and plan on making a seaside themed display in it.

I am off to the caravan next week so I think the kit will be coming with me so watch this space for some creations.
