For the November Gallery Inspired Challenge here: http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/1581935/post/new/#NEW. I had Michelleroz's Beach Baby http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/image/layout/3771829.html chosen for me by KelseyMel, and the twist is "novels".
My somewhat nebulous attempt at the twist is in the journalling behind the photo. It is all about the story of my friend's 3-year restoration on her 19th century house, from no foundations, rising damp and rain coming through the roof, to its present liveable state, and her plans for the future. I hope that is close enough!
