I've clocked over 5000 miles of travel in a little over a month, with three separate trips. Frankly, I'm exhausted. I got home from California and I just crashed. Of course, the nature of the trip itself (funeral, plus family stuff) takes a lot out of a person too. I haven't really done much of anything since I got back...just catching up on rest and cleaning. Oh and bought a new vehicle (well new to me). That was nice.
But I do have some work to share with you.
While I was in California, our family was given a bunch of pictures. Many of them were old photos of my dad as a kid, and even some older ones. But there was also a pile of pictures they took when we were kids. I saw several pics of me and my brother, and I really liked these photos and was inspired to use them pretty much right away. :)
I pulled out an older collection from The ScrapCake for this layout, the collection is called Summer At The Seaside. I used a bunch of my scraps too...love it when I can do that.
The photos were scanned and printed...I'm going to give the pile of original photos back to my dad. I did do a little editing, but I'm not really terrific at that.
I loved the fun touch the umbrella tops turned flower-like embellishments added to the page.
Here are some close up's of my layout:
I'm really looking forward to digging more into all the photos we received. But another thing I hope to remember are all the fun stories I heard...about my dad...about my grandmother....you know, the good stuff. :)
Thanks so much for stopping in today!!!
Have a wonderful day!!
