leigh on sea grid page

Post by Maria on Sat Feb 21, 2009 11:10 am

Well not too much actual crafting on here, but Im quite pleased with this page for my Leigh on sea book - Im so nostalgic about it now I dont live there. None of these photos would have really made a page on their own but its how I remember it - i grew up playing on that beach, used to walk the dog along the towpath there and race my baby brother over the 'curly wurly' bridge.
Thought you might like to see it anyway, seeing as some of you know it.

That's nice. You'll have to go on a photo taking day when you are
over here. Great idea.

Brill Maria!

I'm impressed with anyone who can pull a page like this off, like i said on Pattys the maths to work it out would kill me Laughing

It's a nice way to put pics of one place all together - note the fav pub there too lol.

Oh that's a lovely page! Some really nice pics, and a great way to convey a 'feel' for a place.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Leigh IS indeed a pretty place most of the time - and this layout really does it all credit.

Now I'm glad you put that up, I've never been there but it looks better than my mental picture, you should work for the tourist board. Love the colours and the stitched/silver swirled paper too.

I am really wanting to know more about Leigh on Sea, is it a good place for a dirty weekend...or a family holiday..is it a proper seaside...i went to meet Cubby (off old forum) and we stayed somewhere fairly near chelmsford..which has 'sea' at the end..it was flipping muddy marshes...the 'caravan site' was good...but the entertainer left a lot to be desired...

I love seaside..and i love your grid layout and i love the swirlies.
