The photo was taken last last year shows my dad with my brother on their last visit to Wickham Bay, a lovely fish restaurant, near where they live in West Wickham. This restaurant has been decorated with weathered wooden panels and tiles which are an exact match for these papers! - You can just about see the tiles in the photo.
The main difference in my layout to Chrissy's lovely original was missing out the fussy cutting flowers as they were not really appropriate to my theme. I also gutted the centre from the frames and added my own centres. I created the wording on the computer and printed them onto some scraps of patterned paper to fit inside the frames. I machine stitched around the edges of the papers using a navy blue thread rather than the hand stitching suggested.
Thanks for the design Chrissy - it has made a lovely memory for us of our dad.
Back with the next one tomorrow.
Thanks for looking
