It's only the second week of September and I'm already missing summer activities. One of the things I loved about living in Southern California was being able to go to the beach or pool any time of year. Now here we are in Texas, where it's still in the upper 90's, but since it's after Labor Day all the pools are closed. *SIGH*  So I guess I'll just have to pull out all my summer photos and get scrapping! For this layout I used a sketch from Sketchabilities.

And here's my take on it...

This is a photo of the little sandcastle that my nephew was helping Santiago build in the layout I posted here. The background paper and the cute little bucket & shovel embellie are Paper Studio, the title is a rub-on from the My Mind's Eye Breaking Free line, and the yellow frame is Fancy Pants Nautical. Everything else is miscellaneous scraps and bits.

I also entered this page into one of the September challenges at sketches4all which was to create either a Fall or Summer themed project.

Thanks for looking!
