Beach Time

We have a new challenge at My Grafico Crafts.Challenge #134
theme Beach Time!

We have a really cute beach set from Clemetine that we are featuring for this challenge You can read all about it and see the wonderful Design Team projects by clicking the purple line above. We would love for you to challenge yourself and enter our newest challenge. Remember, you can fancy cut the images, as I have done. No coloring or shading required...that is a blessing. The images are so bright and cheerful.

This is a new venture for me: SCRAPBOOKING! I have dabbled at this before but never really felt comfortable. This time, I just did it and liked the results. Of course, now that I evaluate my work, there are a few things that I would change....Isn't that the way we learn?
I used this cute set from: My Grafico Crafts
There were so many images to choose from:)
My daughter gave me several pictures, of my Granddaughter, I decided the following pictures told the story from that vacation: She did not like sand, on her hand, between her toes, anywhere on her body!! We were at the beach!!! You can tell by her face that she was just getting used to it. I was surprised that 4 years had passed since this beach trip! I was glad to help my daughter 'catch-up' on her scrapbooking pages.

The last picture shows her in awe at all the sand everywhere!!
This picture is a close up of the bottom of page 1

The second day, she was a little more tolerant of the sand and began to enjoy the beach. She was trying to help her brother built a sand castle. I added the bucket and shovel for journaling.The best part is that both KT and mom loved the layouts!!! Job Well Done.

Materials Used:
CS: Michael's(Recollections)
