ATS - Scrapbook Challenge #2 - Holiday, Fun in the Sun for Lollipop Crafts #86 and CFC66 Splish/Splash

Hello again friends - I'm on a roll today with my crafty projects - whoo hoo!  But sadly I'm going to have to stop now and get some laundry and errands done.  It was fun while it lasted ;o) but back to reality now.  Before I dash off I wanted to share one more project that I finished today for 3 challenges. 

I started scrapping today again thanks to a challenge over at Addicted to Stamps - Scrapbook Challenge #2 which asks us to create a scrapbook page around a family holiday (vacation in my case).  This photo is from our 2007 family vacation to the ocean in Seaside, Oregon.  Since I have about 60 photos that I need/want to scrap from this vacation I decided to make a simple page for this photo.  That is my sister down on the ocean edge with my nieces and my kids.  That's me in the blue trying to capture an upclose picture of them (my other sister took this photo of us).  The water was wayyyy colder than we expected it to be - so the adults didn't spend much time in it, but the kids loved it.  My son got a new waterboard (stuck in the sand there) that provided hours of fun for him (its quite a trick to run and jump on that thing while it is moving).  

The challenges that I am entering with this page (in addition to the ATS mentioned above) are:
Lollipop Crafts #86 - Fun in the Sun (we didn't have a lot of sun on this vacation until the last 2 days - but we sure had FUN!) and CAS-Fridays #66 - Splish Splash -a CAS creation about something in or at the ocean (we - our family - is at the ocean and there is a pesky little seagul in the photo that wouldn't go away).  I do hope this qualifies as CAS - there is lots of open space and just a few elements on the page in addition to the title and photo. 

Thanks so much for coming by to visit me - I'm always glad that you do!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Til next time - Hugs!
