Feed the birds...

I am slowly getting through my old holiday photographs, currently working on a week in Cornwall from 2007. The whole week we had flocks of seagulls outside our chalet and one (we think it was the same one but who knows) regularly 'knocked' on the glass patio door with his beak.  
 I created the background by 'stamping' with a feather using Hickory smoke distress ink.
 I've used the first August sketch from Stuck?! sketches,  
tweaking slightly to fit in the three photos I wanted for this page. I also used the challenge theme from Another Freaking scrappy challenge which was to use a souvenir from an event.  These are the only photos I took actually on the holiday park so although including the little card pass we had that let us into the facilities is a bit of a stretch with these pictures, it was the closest I am going to get and I definitely wanted to use it having kept it for 9 years!  
I also continued with the pinwheels which are a consistent embellishment I'm making myself for all the pages of this holiday.
I'm loving going through these old photos and remembering our holiday.....thanks for stopping by...Esther xx
