A place to share my paper addiction and scrapbook pages!

Here is my third official double page layout for Let's Scrap. I've always called myself the "seasonal scrapbooker." If I tried to be a chronological scrapper, I would've given up on this hobby a while ago. I scrap the mood that hits me at the time. And this time around, it was beach. I'm pretty sure I have salt in my veins. How I ended up in a landlocked state is beyond me...But for this double page layout, I was inspired by pictures of my girls playing in the sand in Panama City Beach, Florida. My oldest is highly creative. (And I'm not just saying that because I'm her Mom...she just is). So I'm sitting in a beach chair reading a book letting the view of the emerald water overcome me, and I get a "Hey Mom look!" And next thing I know, she's covered in sand and made herself a "mermaid tail." My younger daughter of course was in on the action finding seaweed and other stuff to decorate the tail. So when I saw the sketch and the "flourishes" at the bottom, this is what I wanted to recreate in this layout. And the Graphic 45 "By the Sea" line was perfect to bring this all together.
