The Cure

GO BIG challenge is up on the October Afternoon blog. Head on over to see Patricia's beautiful layout.

Here's my take!

I was so excited when Patricia said the challenge is to 'Go Big'! I knew then what I wanted to do, well, because I have been wanting to do this for so long!
I've been missing the beach lately. It has been a while since we went for a beach vacation. I went though my collection of beach photos and printed it full page, yes that photo is 8.5 x 11. 
As big as it gets, eh? :)

I layered a 'speech' tag from Milk Money Flash Blubs pack on a somewhat empty spot on the photo. I went with the Old Oak chipboard alphabets this time because I think it's just so fitting for this page about nature.
I then typed out the quote on my super old typewriter and cut them apart into strips. Minimal embellishing with a couple of brads from Public Library collection and leaves stickers from Daily Flash Apple Cider and we're done.
This layout now sits in a frame, near my scrap area. Oh how I miss that beach. 
Thank you Patricia for this awesome challenge and for reminding me that I need to plan for a beach trip soon! :)

Play along, will you? :)
