Sand & Sun

The Be Amazing Kit from Scraptastic Club has the most beautiful blue hues, colors that immediately brought to my mind the water of the Florida panhandle and our vacations to the beach. I was thus inspired to pull out this picture of my youngest and his cousin from one such joyous week of relaxation. The two boys are such good buddies now. Their backs are to the camera, but you can see that one is leaning over to talk to the other, probably saying something like "Did you see that wave I caught!" or "Let's go inside and get a snack!" They always have so much to say to each other, and my journaling expresses the desire of mine to be that "fly on the wall" or "crab in the sand", listening in on their conversation.

Two of the white tags from the kit highlight a horizon scene. Don't you just love those chipboard clouds?! The long over-sized banner on the left side of the page holds the title and gives me more room to play. A simply pieced sailboat fills up the spot, but you could put a flower cluster or other embellishment in its place. If you are verbose, that oversized banner could be a great spot for your journaling as well.

Whenever I scrap pictures of our days at the beach, I begin to dream about our next vacation. Can't wait for those lazy days to be here! Do you take a summer vacation? Winter vacation? Where do you dream of going?


  1. I love all the piecing you did on this layout!

  2. I love everything about this great layout! It's clean, the embellies are delightful, and the great picture stands out!

  3. This layout is AMAZING! I can totally see how well they get along in that photo. It's just such a super sweet page.
