Alone At Last

Mei Ann says, KAYA!

One of the things that my hubby and I have in common is our love for the sea. We used to dive in Anilao every weekend before migrating here in the Great White North.

On top of our wish list is to have a wooden shack by the sea where I can scrap the whole day and he can just sit on the sand listening to the sound of the waves. Our dream is still far from happening but every time we have a chance, and weather permitting, we love going to our seaside hideaway....to be far from the hustle and bustle of the city life and to be "Alone At Last"!

Our deep love for the sea is captured by Neil Sedaka's song "Alone at Last."



Journaling:
Alone at last in a hideaway
Far away from all the worries in the world
We share each other while the sun's going down
Not another soul around.

Materials:
Sandylion (Boardwalk), Making Memories vintage frame, Basicgrey Element Sticker, Seashells and starfish, decorative net, gems, sack cloth, Martha Stewart butterfly craft punch, thread for stitching

Techniques:
Stitched the title on a sack cloth, handmade the butterfly embellishments

About Me:
