life moments 38

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is: "a mid-summer's challenge". Whether your creative mind wants to take a vacation or be inspired by Shakespeare; play with a Farmer's Market inspired paper line or stamp into a starry night frenzy ~ we challenge you to create and share with us.
 I was inspired to create a layout documenting a summer vacation:
Every year, I look forward to a fun family summer beach vacation. My daughter Meredith loves to surf so I scrapped a layout featuring a photograph of her that was taken while on a summer beach vacation. I surrounded her with Nautical Blueprint images:



as well as Mini Sand and Sea Grungeboard embellishments, Spring Greenery and a MINI TATTERED FLORAL Blossom:
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
