Southampton is a nice quiet village on the northwest coast of Lake Huron. Rick and I booked a bed and breakfast weekend with the intent to lay on the beach, golf, shop and bike for 2 days. Little did we know that an F3 tornado was on its way an hour to the south. Foregoing the beach, we managed to keep ourselves entertained between heavy rain downpour nonetheless. We particularly enjoyed biking around the little streets by the beach. The homes in Southampton are
picturesque beyond description. We also had a wonderful ride through the Lakeshore Trail at McGregor Point Provincial Park.
Southampton features many antique heritage homes so naturally I used a vintage theme for this layout. I had gorgeous sheet of ephemera paper with bicycles, umbrellas and wardrobes that fit the bill perfectly. My colour theme was rich browns, rose and buttercup. I love the faint handwriting on the You and Me Close to my Heart papers; and a detail shot shows me using yet another  Milepost corrugated shape for the ampersand . ("and" symbol)
I dont know if you can see the detail unless you click on the photo to enlarge, but there are some pennant shapes with tiny mocha opaque adhesive pearl gems that came with me You and Me Kit in July.
Believe me these kits are a value , I got a stamp set, ribbon, the gems, chipboard, and the papers with instructions for 4 layouts. Hello? I always purchase the kits on special.
