The View Challenge: Layouts & Sketches

Hello again, I am back with some layouts and sketches for this months view challenge...well I hope you get this. I am away at my group of friends' scrapbooking retreat (laughter, food, wine, a little bit of scrapping in between), and we have unreliable internet, so I hope it does post to you ok.

 Thank you Sue again for drawing the sketches, fab as usual.
 So I didn't take this photo in March, but it was at the end of Feb and I wanted to include it in the challenge. As I said I decided that I was going to take it from an aspect of the South West Coast Path and attempt to walk it from Ilfracombe to Braunton in stages. 
Mum and I decided to go from Croyde to Braunton which we figured was about 5 miles. A bit of a challenge for us as we aren't the fittest mother and daughter team you have ever encountered. Anyway, we went wrong and ended up doing 10 miles! Which wouldn't have been too bad if I had been dressed appropriately, as it was I was cold to start and I think probably had mild exposure by the time we got back. It took me ages to thaw out and my arms and wrists had relaxed from how they had seized up! Anyway, I am glad we did it, I am very glad we didn't have to have the coastguard out to rescue us and I am very, very glad that I cannot wait to get out and do the next bit. 
So both my layouts are done with the same photo taken from the headland point between Croyde and Saunton. 
Now please don't think that you need a big photo, it happened that snapfish gave me a free A4 print credit so I took them up on it, you can substitute it with a large piece of paper of course.
Ok, i'll be back in a couple of days with the kitchen window view prompt. Take care x
