hi sunshine

At the moment it is snowing outside like Christmas Eve. There is a blanket of white and absolutely no end in sight. Crazy. Just when I think I can permanently trade the ugg boots for sandals...
So, I am looking at these beach photos and dreaming of the sunshine.
This layout is made with photos from our recent trip to California. Quincey loved the beach! Especially playing in the sand & was happily covered in it from head to toe.

Stuff I used:
Jenni Bowlin: Yellow Stripe Banners, Beach Bingo Card
Crate Paper: Clouds, Stripe
Dear Lizzy: cute Glitter Brads, Paper Flowers
American Crafts letter stickers, yellow dot
Girls' Paperie: Turquoise Button
Favorite pen

Happy Monday! Hope you had a fabulous weekend.
Soak up some sunshine for me!
PS
The Scrap Room "... get pages done!" Is featuring Dear Lizzy in their May kits so check it out!
The Girls' Loft has a fabulous kit this month too!
PPS for cute tankini swimsuits check out Lime Ricki!

I can now officialy call myself cool cause I have that tankini. Love the Dear Lizzy stuff lately. And I just got my Lizzy book and am trying not to devour every page. Trying to make it last longer! Come to Montana and do a class please.

I just love, love, love this page! Great color combos, may be my fave page of yours ever. Oh, and Quincey is just gorgeous! Those blue eyes, my little guy is her age and has the same bright blue eyes, I adore them every day. Don't you love this age?
Sorry it's snowing...

Sorry it's snowing where you are! It's near 90 here in Michigan! Thanks so much for the tankini link. It's so hard finding modest swim tops and this place looks awesome! And congrats on your pregnancy! I wondered if you were pregnant based off comments you made about being tired a lot. :)God bless you and your family!

Oy my Goodness. In that first pic your daughter really looks like Collin. I love looking at your layouts. It gives me great ideas on how to use all my "dear lizzy" stuff that I have been hoarding. Snow in May does really stink!
