Beach day

WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY!!!

I hope that doesn't scare you away!
I made this fun layout today!
Yep, another 12 x 12...
This was on my first full day of vacation back in April
My mom and I met my sister and 2 of her 3 boys at the beach..
I'm playing along with the layout challenge on Page maps found here
It's a challenge to use boarders... (and it's part of their 7 year anniversary celebration!!)
So I used up some of my scraps, and some of my not scraps, and I made a bunch of borders,
and I stacked them in the middle of the page!
We had a GREAT time, and I thought since I'm scrappin my vacay, why not start at the beginning?
Here are some of the close up's
I wrote that with my fun ne calligraphy pen!
Here's a close up of  one of the de Gartrell Vikings from Angie Delaire
you can find them in her shop here
and the male Viking as well!
Best part is that they come together for a fabulously low price!
Here you can see that I added some twine around the corners,
I'm playing along with the twine challenge found on The Craze of MJ's blog here
The challenge is to use twine... and I just love using twine!
And here's a close up of my title!
Ahhhh a Beach day!!  They are hard to come by now that I'm back in the desert,
but just looking at the pics makes me wanna hop in the car and head to the coast!
I hope you are having a great start to your summer!!!!
