my hometown prompt 4

Sunny South Shields is the town where I live, actually I was born here and lived here all my life. I have spent all my life wishing I lived somewhere else maybe in the countryside or even in another country, preferably somewhere warmer. Its only recently that I have been glad I live here......the beach is just 5 minutes away and we have a lovely green belt owned by the National Trust that stretches to another beach about 2 mile up the road. I spend most days walking my dog along the beach and the cliff tops, admiring the amazing view. I'm now very grateful to have this beautiful coastline on my doorstep. 

This layout was inspired mostly by the photographs which were taking on a daily walk, I used them along with this sketch from Shimelle, its the sketch of the week, her blog is full of inspiring creativity. I kept layout quite simple just focusing mainly on photographs, added little embellishment and some simple journalling.




I wonder if you all love where you live? or do you wish you lived somewhere else? maybe a million miles away......please do share your thoughts

Love your page. When I first moved to where I live now I hated it - but didn't have much choice as my husband was in the forces. 10 years down the line we love it - so much so that we have bought a house here and are staying put!

Wow, what's not to love about your town?! I do love where I live... the mountains in TN.

You are very lucky to live so close to the sea. We made a big move from London to the country a few years back and luckily, I love it xx Gorgeous layout xx

Hi Angie. I am taking the BB4S class with you. Great take on Shimelle's sketch! I wouldn't choose to live where I do, but being away from family just isn't something that I'm willing to give up right now. But, it leaves me with lots to dream about!

I have lived abroad & away from the north east but theres no place like home. I have a postcard of Sunderland on my fridge to remind me although I love it here down south that it will always be home :)
