Hope and Dream

Although I am new to scrapbooking, thanks to my Sister Tracey I have observed from afar for a long time. I love looking at other peoples ideas and especially looking at the photos, although my husband think I am nosey!

After browsing the Merly Impressions website I noticed a challenge that got me thinking. I am in a similar situation to Emilie. I have no children, so once I have finished scrapping about my dog and childhood memories, what else should I scrap about? Emilie has asked us to create something that tells a story about ourselves and this is what I have created.

Recently I have been thinking about my future and what I hope to achieve. I love going to the seaside. Even if it is a day visit, the sea air and walking on the sand is so relaxing. The thought of having a seaside escape has been in my mind for a while and the more I think about it the more excited I have become. I do not want to go abroad as I like the idea of disappearing at the drop of a hat. This is what myself and my husband are working towards and I am going to enjoy visiting lots of places to find the right property.

I apologise for the shadows in the photos. I took the pictures this evening, but I will upload some better pictures soon x
