Summer Memories

We just spent a great long weekend down at my parent's house in Chatham.  We celebrated the 4th with friends, went to the beach and topped it all off with a boat ride to watch some fireworks from Marion Harbor.  It really was a great weekend.  While we were on the beach, I was watching a dad with his little one playing in the waves.  It was just too cute.  It reminded me of this layout I had featured in the summer issue of PaperHaus Magazine
These pictures are from back in 2000.  My husband had my daughter jumping over the waves as they came in.  It was so cute how she was brave one minute, then not so much the next!
I used Studio Calico's Sundrifter collection along with some Mister Huey Mists for this layout.  I love the soft colors!

The clouds and sun were cut using an Amy Tangerine stitching template as a guide.  I then stitched them to make them pop a bit more.

The shell, sand dollar and star fish were all cut using my Silhouette.  Such a fun memory.  Well, back to reality...laundry, know the drill.  I'll be back on Tuesday for the Twinery/Ruby Rock-It blog hop. Be sure to check it out, there just might be a prize involved!!  Thanks for stopping by.
