Ancestry ~ Family Reunion Layout

Its the weekend and I am still doing layouts from last years family reunion. Todays layout features pictures of my great aunt Rose and uncle Bobby. Last year my uncle Bobby passed away. Just days after celebrating his 50th wedding anniversary. I was so glad that I got the chance to see him months prior to his passing. He is truly missed and was loved by many.

For some reason I having difficulty resizing this photo. I will try something different and repost it soon. Thanks for understanding.

Sun~Sand~Surf Scrapbook Layout

Its Tuesday Everyone and today I am sharing a layout from our trip to Callaway Gardens last Labor Day. My son had such a good time playing on Round Robin Beach and searching for sea shells. That was the highlight of the entire trip. For this layout I used the cricut cartridge "Life's A Beach", and American Crafts "Boardwalk" page kit. This happens to be one of my favorite kits from AC. The colors are so bright and vibrate. Just perfect for capturing beach memories.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to leave a comment letting me know you were here.

Enjoy the rest of your day, Sharondalyn
