Beach inspiration

It's Sunday, which means it's reveal day for the weekly challenge at Lasting Memories. This week Denise is asking us to use something not normally used on a scrapbook layout.  I had a dig through my hoarded 'findings' to see what I could use, and I came up with this:

It's the cover of a 2011 cafe and restaurant guide from West End/South Bank in Brisbane.  At some point I guess I was going to use it for something, but I honestly can't remember now.  I do love the teal green colour and the gold embossed pigeon on the front, and the pigeon motifs all over the inside cover.  I cut some large circles for part of my background, using both sides of the cardboard.

This is my layout:

In creating my layout, I was inspired by the new inspiration board at Inkido:


I have no shortage of "beachy" photographs to scrap so this is another push to get some more of those pages scrapped.

My layout was created from Ashley Horton's sketch at the Creative Scrappers Birthday Bash.
