You MUST create a layout using 5 of these items AND the mystery item and post it in the 'Dream You're a Scrap Star' folder in the gallery before that Saturday at noon.

2) the design team will then vote and the winners will go onto the next round. The advancing members will be posted on Monday along with the next sets of 'dream items'

I LOVE SCENIC that I have that out of my system....

I had so much fun creating my next layout....I cut out the surfboards add placed them around the sticker to look like the sun!

My next layout (also with scenic route) I created about my handsome hubby...I also used Grungeboard that I layered with inks to give it a marbley look...

Thanks so much for looking! Have a great night!

Vacation Wednesday - Beach Soccer & Brady!

My nephew Brady came out to spend some time with we headed off to Erieau and spent some time at the beach (again)! The boys (all 4 of them) decided they wanted to play some beach soccer...

They all braved the water (no I did not) it was sooooooooooooooo cold!

I love this photo of Cody....

I really do think my hubby was the best looking guy on the beach....
