Scrapbook page

I'm a bit disappointed that I've not been able to enlarge the photograph that I've used. My scanner couldn't pick out the detail in the sea and the whole thing was just far too pale. When I tried to adjust the colour/contrast it wasn't a satisfactory reproduction so this is the original photo, about 47 years old.

I'm going to enter this into three challenges
craftycreations challenge #71 Child's play
ilovedigi challenge #9 Anything but a card to include digi images
thepinkelephant scrapbook challenge #11 using a black and white photo

I printed this from my pc and distressed it to fit the theme

The digi images that I have used are from Dustin Pike
Papers are from my stash, can't remember which designer
Promarkers cool grey 3, umber, sandstone, tan, caramel, cocoa, walnut, powder blue, marsh green, forest green, tea green, grey green and soft green
Vintage photo distress ink
