Beach 2010


Well, I haven't made a scrapbook page in a LONG time. I have made lots of cards....and even started my own challenge blog, Jitterbuggin', but no scrapbook pages. A recent family vacation on wonderful Edisto Island, SC was just the push I needed to start scrappin' again. Other incentives were a great sketch at Sketches in Thyme and a vacation challenge at My Sheri Crafts.


I used a sketch at Jitterbuggin' to create the title block with Life's a Beach and some old 2008 DCWV Summer Stack paper.....ribbon, buttons, little embossing, etc. Details for the title block are on my card blog, Love, Laughter, and Creations. (click here) The picture is of my 91 year old grandmother....we were pleasantly surprised when she not only came on vacation with us but came down to the beach to sit as well. The palm trees around her are from Life's a Beach as well. Paper is DCWV Animal Crackers and some glitter paper from Target's $1 bin along with the DCWV Summer 2008 stack. Ric-Rac to finish it off. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of more scrappin'!
