Beach Bums!

Ok, before you faint...you may want to sit down! I scrapped a page! Yes, a 12x12 page layout! AND....AND...I used a photo that was just taken August 2nd, 2010. How about that?! I used some papers from my July LSS club kit. The papers were mostly beachy themed, so I made my kids go to the beach and stand still for a photo! I know, going to the beach is such a hardship. Especially when you only live 8 miles away!

I used these fabbie Bo Bunny papers, and the new Bazzill kraft paper I just purchased. Very beach appropriate!

I had to add a bit of Graphic45 On the Boardwalk paper too. And check out this ribbon. I pleated it on the one side to give some interest. I wish I had more of this ribbon. It's very pretty.

I had some Jenni Bowlin mini bingo cards left from a class kit I put together, so used some of those. Oh, and get a load of my kids' faces...they were NOT being tortured! There is no way I can ever get all three of them to smile and keep their eyes open at the same time! But here are Nathan 18.5, Laura nearly 15, and Jonah nearly 10.

The chipboard letters are L'il Davis. I found them in the $1 bin at the San Diego Expo during the spring. Yay me!

See the little bottle of sand?! I got that little bottle from Sky Blue Pink. They always have lots of cool junk to buy! The sand is from our local beach. Above the tide line, the sand is black. Not sure why...from the fire pits? All I know is...it's black.

There you have it...an actual page layout. And I just made 3 others for my August Graphic45 DT submission! HA! See! I can scrap if I wanna!

Note: To purchase Graphic45 class kits, see the link in the sidebar or click the link at the top of the blog.
